Pep Guardiola warned Manchester City's rivals that their historic 15th successive Premier League victory proved they won't let complacency ruin their title bid.

Guardiola's side crushed struggling Swansea 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday to set a new record winning streak in the Premier League.

Just four days after their emotional 2-1 win at Manchester United -- an explosive derby that reportedly ended with a brawl involving players and coaches from both teams in the dressing room area -- City showed they can keep their intensity levels high against lesser opponents.

City boss Guardiola was impressed with the way his players coped with a demanding week to maintain their 11-point lead over United and he believes that laser focus will stand them in good stead as the title draws nearer.

"Considering we have a lot of games in our legs, a demanding game at Old Trafford three days ago, we were solid, we were serious and we made a good performance," Guardiola said.

"That (complacency) is not going to happen. We are so demanding for our players. We can lose, we can drop points but complacency, never happened in the past, the present or the future."

Guardiola saluted City for breaking new ground with a win that surpassed the record Arsenal set in 2002 and the Spaniard admitted his club are in a great moment.

"Winning 15 games in a row gives us a lot of confidence. If people are happy watching us that is the best gift," he said.

"You suffer and enjoy, like a manager you see many things. When the team play good we are happy.

"Our feeling -- we understand what we want to do. We play good inside, outside."

"For me, one of the best sides I've ever come across. So many good athletes, so many intelligent footballers and it's really hard to pin them down," he said. © AFP
