Seventeen wins and one draw in 18 matches, 16 of those victories consecutive ones, these are the numbers that have made some call this season’s Manchester City one of the best teams ever in the Premier League, a title that Wayne Rooney feels Guardiola’s squad hasn’t really won yet.
I’m not sure they are quite there. They would have to keep going and do a lot more. There have been so many great teams throughout the years in the Premier League. This City team needs to win trophies and needs to do it for a longer period to be in that bracket
the Everton player and Manchester United legend told talkSPORT, adding that the way he see thinks, “the best ever? I would go with the Man United team from 2008”.
As for City finishing the season unbeaten, Rooney seemed absolutely sure that this is not going to happen.
They have done incredibly well with the run they have been on, but the Premier League is so difficult, especially now with this Christmas period coming up. I know they have a huge squad, a great squad of players. But there are so many top teams. I think in previous years it has been two teams and you went in knowing you would win most of the other games. But now there are five or six other teams that can all beat each other and I’m sure in one of those games Man City will get beaten
the leading scorer in Man United’s history said.
