Pep Guardiola claims City’s standards could drop this season.
The Man City coach believes it’s impossible to match last season’s treble-winning campaign.
The Spaniard saw his squad pick up the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League trophies last term.
Man City are now preparing for their sixth domestic title in seven years and will play Burnley in their Premier League opener this Friday.
Guardiola has warned their fans not to expect a repeat of their record-breaking campaign.
Given the ammunition he has up his sleeves, City are undoubtedly the favourites to win every competition this campaign.
“We are going to drop that’s for sure,” said Guardiola.
“It’s inevitable a little bit. We’ll try to avoid it as much as possible. Now it’s (about) not dropping too much – staying there, staying there, (being) close to our rivals.
“Then try to, in the last four, five, or six months, try to do what we have done every season. I don’t want to do it now. That is my feeling. Now, (it would be a) big mistake thinking about trophies and titles – big mistake.”
