Pep Guardiola has refused to look beyond Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash with Wolves and warns that any team can beat them.
Despite being five points clear at the top of the Premier League, Guardiola is taking nothing for granted when it comes to Tuesday’s match against Wolves.
He said: “The only thing as a manager I said since my career started is ‘think about the next one’,” he said.
“The next one is Wolves. It doesn’t matter where or if they are in the top five or six, any team can beat us.”
“Only we can see in every single game and Tuesday is another game, to try to be so serious and play as good as possible to deserve the respect from our opponents.
“We deserve the respect of opponents when they look at us, when they watch us on TV, on the field, and say ‘that team makes a lot of good things’. That is all I want and after we will see.”
Guardiola made eight changes for the third-round win at West Brom and is likely to mix up his starting line-up again versus Wolves.
The likes of Claudio Bravo, Danilo, Eliaquim Mangala, Ilkay Gundogan and Yaya Toure may come into the side as they did against Albion, while if Sergio Aguero scores he will break City’s all-time goal-scoring record with 178.
