Guardiola doesn’t want his side to fall into the complacency trap.
Pep Guardiola’s side are on a 16-match unbeaten run in all competitions after Saturday’s 3-0 triumph against the Spurs.
They are currently at the top of the Premier League table with seven points ahead of second-placed Manchester United and also with a game in hand.

“The 15 games in a row winning doesn’t help us to start 2-0 up before the start of the game,” Guardiola told reporters on Friday.
“I said many times it is nice and helps us to be where we are in the Carabao (League) Cup, FA Cup, Champions League and especially the Premier League. But no more than that.
“We have to start again tomorrow to do the next one. It is an important week with three strong teams and this is the target.
“(We have to) try in this time to recover, see who the opponents are, what they have done in the game where we played there, what we have to do to play better and beat them.”
