Pep Guardiola: 'Manchester City must win titles to become a big club'

Sean Dyche and Pep Guardiola argue over Manchester City's controversial equaliser

Pep Guardiola says the EFL Cup is as important to him as any of the four trophies that Manchester City is seeking this season.

Burnley have received much praise for the results that they have attained so far this season and it will be intriguing to see whether Sean Dyche's side can continue to perform so effectively in the remainder of the campaign.

Oleksandr Zinchenko revealed that there is not only a belief but a burning desire within Guardiola's squad to lift all four trophies this season.

"As soon as we had the contact I was sure he was going to make the run, so I just had to play the pass".

He said: "We think about this every single day and every training session - we can win everything, and that's why we are here". The manager told me I had to be ready.

Burnley skipper Ben Mee is a graduate of City's academy and agreed that his old club are capable of a clean sweep.

"He is always the kind of player who always wants to play and I can understand sometimes he is sad if he doesn't play".

After accumulating 21 trophies in seven years at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, the first one in English football can not come soon enough for Guardiola. He made a mistake for the first goal, but that is not the problem, the problem is how he reacts to that mistake.

That flash point was a rare moment of concern for Guardiola and City on an afternoon in which they stormed back after trailing to Ashley Barnes' first half goal. 'Winning helps to win more.

Now he's going back to Spain and he'll be back when he feels good, we are happy because everything is going well. Without them, it's not enough. But nobody can take away what we've done so far.

'We have to be involved in everything, ' he added. They're in them all.

"From my experience in Barcelona when we won the treble, in January you can not talk about it, it's unrealistic", he said. "The other guys have many, many things to improve, and Leroy especially". Visualise, focus on what's next.

Dyche was unhappy with the equaliser as he thought the free kick had been taken too quickly as Ashley Westwood was stood in front of the ball when he would have been in the gap that City exploited to find Sergio Aguero, who added a second just over a minute later.

Aguero started the move that led to his second.

"If they take the free kick and it hits Ashley, he gets booked".

"We had a game plan and I think it worked in the first half, but I think a 10 minute spell from their first killed us a little bit", Barnes added.
