Pep Guardiola has dismissed the suggestion that Manchester City are the best team in the world.

It’s now 17 wins from their last 19 games for Guardiola’s side but Spaniard insists Chelsea’s Champions League triumph last season means they are still the team to beat.

“No, we are not the best team in the world,” said Guardiola. “The best team is Chelsea who won the Champions League.The important thing is in three days we go to Norwich and have to win the game.

“This thing about who is the best, I don’t care. Be happy, and try to play better every day and at the end we will see.

“We are in a good position, 60 points at the moment. We have to qualify for the Champions League [next season] because that is the most important target and then arrive in the last few games fighting for the title. This is what I want to do.”

City’s victory over Brentford was sealed with a Riyad Mahrez penalty and another from Kevin De Bruyne. They remain on course for a fourth title in five years but Guardiola is adamant the race isn’t over yet. “Liverpool have two games in hand, after they play we will see the gap,” said the City boss.

“There’s 14 games to play with tough games like today. Look at what can happen, Tottenham lose at home to Southampton.

“Everyone is tough competition. It is important at this stage to have 60 points. It means we have done incredibly well so far. Three days, another game at Norwich. They’re on a good run and then we start the Champions League. “
