Manchester City have had a great start to their season, and it's quite clear that the tactics that Pep Guardiola wants too employ have been taken on board by his players. 

After a brilliant win in the Manchester derby, and another impressive win by a margin of four goals over Bounemouth this weekend, expectations around just what he can achieve in his first season in charge are already beginning to grow. 

However, the man himself is hoping to keep a lid on things and didn't seem to be too pleased with the idea that he might be able to guide the team to a historic quadruple, a suggestion was given very short shrift at a press conference this weekend. 

"What the f***?," responded Guardiola when asked about the possible trophy haul. After a long silence and a big sigh, he added: "Manchester City have arrived once in their lives int he semi-final of the Champions League. So when the people believe that I am going to win the Champions League they say it's because I'm a really good coach. I don't think so, guys."

"My target today is now, to be happy today, drink a little bit of wine, and tomorrow prepare the game," added Guardiola. 

Stating that he knows the difficulties that lie ahead for him and his team, he closed by stating: "My question today is are the people who came today this afternoon to the Etihad stadium, did they enjoy it? Yes? Well, that is enough."
