Pep Guardiola warned his title rivals Manchester United and Liverpool that his rampant Manchester City side “can do better” despite racking up 13 straight wins on the bounce across all competitions.
City travel to Anfield to face reigning Premier League champions Liverpool on Sunday after victory over Burnley at Turf Moor gave them a ninth league win on the trot.

Goals from Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling saw them ease to victory over Burnley and extend their lead over Man United to three points with a game in hand.
