Man City boss believes his team did not have a good start to the season.

Manchester City

did not have a good start to the season, but the Citizens gradually found their perfect form and pulled themselves up to the top of the Premier League table.

Man City were standing ninth the table, however, after a 1-1 draw with

West Brom

in December, they finally managed to pull themselves together and have set the record of 21 consecutive victories ever since.

Pep Guardiola

has spoken to

Sky Sports

, saying he was not pleased with the team’s situation at the beginning of the season.

"It was not just that specific West Brom game. It was the last games before West Brom,"

Guardiola said.

"Always I am a spectator - I am a manager but a spectator. I want to enjoy, I want to see my team playing the way the team must play, and I didn't watch it for a long, long time.

"I lost in Barcelona, I lost in Munich, but always I recognize my team, and in that period, I could not recognize it, I didn't like it.

"Sometimes we have one or two days to reflect, I talked with my backroom staff, we discussed many things and talked about the process of what to do.

"I said 'guys, we did it here in England, we did it in Germany and Spain as well, so we just come back to our principles, do what we have to do and try to do it again'.

"There's no guarantee to win games but at least we'll be proud, we'll recognize what we want to be, the way we want to live, and after, it's one game, another win, the confidence rises, the trust rises and that helps us to be in the position we are."
