Pep Guardiola has promised Arsene Wenger that Manchester City have no chance of emulating his Arsenal team's 2003/04 record of completing a Premier League season unbeaten.

Arsenal were dubbed the 'Invincibles' after becoming only the second team – after Preston North End in 1888/89 – to go through an English top-flight campaign without losing a game.

City are unbeaten after 10 games of the league season, but Wenger has suggested it will be difficult for them to match his side's achievement and City boss Guardiola agrees with the Arsenal manager.

"I would like to say to Arsene that this record belongs to him. We are not going to break it," Guardiola said on Friday ahead of his side's home game with Arsenal on Sunday.

"He has to be calm. He has to be sure that is not going to happen. It was an exceptional team.

"To stay unbeaten in the Premier League is something fantastic. He has to know that we don't want to break this record, but we want to play well and beat them on Sunday."

City have not lost any of their 16 competitive games this season, winning 14 of them and beating Wolverhampton Wanderers on penalties after a draw in the League Cup.

They sit five points clear at the top of the table, but Guardiola played down Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's suggestion that City are on course for the title.

"We are five points ahead of Manchester United," he told reporters at City's Manchester training base.

"How many games are left? Twenty-eight. How many points? Eighty-four. We are five in front. It is nothing. © AFP
