Manchester City Ruthlessness Reminds Guardiola Of Great Barcelona Vintage

The Premier League side have scored nine goals without reply in their last two games, reminding their manager of his ruthless Barca side

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City are beginning to remind him of his great Barcelona side after a dominant week domestically and abroad.

City demolished 10-man Liverpool 5-0 last Saturday and followed that up with a first away win in main-draw European action under the Catalan by thumping Feyenoord 4-0.

Guardiola won La Liga three times and the Champions League twice in a glittering four years as coach at Camp Nou, while putting together a side revered as one of club football's finest.

With a well-slicked City attack featuring Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus supported by the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Bernardo Silva, Guardiola believes he could be on the brink of another era-defining run, with a Premier League trip to Watford on Saturday their next examination.

Asked if City's vintage reminded him of his great Barca side, he replied: "Of course, what we have done against Feyenoord is what I liked and tried to do at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

"But sometimes I wasn't able to do it, even at Barcelona and in Munich, to keep the ball high and press. To control the counter-attacks and be there and after they have three passes, we have the ball.
