Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola laughed off Jose Mourinho’s suggestion about Manchester City B team.

The former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho declared that the only four teams that could win the Premier League were City, Liverpool, Tottenham and City B.

City boss still believes there are many teams with a chance of the title and has been impressed with Chelsea despite their two defeats.

“I’m really impressed with how Chelsea played in the games with tough teams in United and Liverpool,” he said.

“They didn’t win but I was really surprised with how good Frank Lampard’s team played. We saw United with the quality they have up front. Arsenal bought good players with [Nicolas] Pepe and David Luiz. They have [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and [Alexandre] Lacazette, [Dani] Ceballos was an incredibly top player in Spain with good movement and quality. Tottenham are the same – they are all really good contenders.”

Manchester City host Spurs at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow.
