Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists he accepts the challenge Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United pose in the Premier League title race this season.
“Every year I get the idea that it is harder than before,” Guardiola said.
“It’s really tough, an incredible challenge for us. We accept the challenge and go for it.
“It’s a big compliment for the Premier League – the Premier League has to be so proud of the fantastic league we have and for the brilliant managers.”
