Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola stated he was unaware if people liked the team he built after taking over at the club in 2016. The former Barcelona manager said he wouldn't go "knocking on doors" asking people what they think of his squad.

The Spaniard has built a formidable side, who have won every trophy on offer and his signings fit like perfect puzzle pieces. However, Manchester City have spent ludicrous sums of money since 2017.

The club are currently under investigation for allegedly breaking financial rules and await the fate of 115 charges that have been put against him. This has also attracted a lot of unwanted attention towards the club.

But if Pep's words are to be believed, he doesn't know about what people have to say about his team. Here's what he said (via GOAL):

"F**k. I don't know. Sometimes people ask me what I think people think of any subject and I don't think about it. I don't go knocking on doors asking what they think. I don't know, honestly."

Manchester City face West Ham United on the last day of the season on May 19, Sunday. Should they win the clash, Arsenal's game against Everton will more or less become a formality.

While commenting on City's game against the Hammers, Pep said:

"If you ask all the Premier League teams at the start of the season what would be the best position for the last game of the season, we are in the best position. We need to win one game to be champions so everyone would love to be in our position. But it won't be easy. I have the feeling it will be an Aston Villa game. We would love to be 3-0 up but it isn't going to happen."

Interestingly, David Moyes, who is currently managing West Ham United, was Pep Guardiola's first opponent in England when the Cityzens took on Sunderland in 2016.

Manchester City will become the first team to win the Premier League title four consecutive times

The three-horse race for the Premier League title has now come down to two teams with Liverpool falling behind. Both Arsenal and Manchester City enter the final matchday of the season as potential champions.

The Gunners would be hoping that City drop points. This will allow them to claim their first PL title for the first time since the Invincibles season in 2003-04.

As for Manchester City, a win will see them lift their sixth PL title in seven years. Furthermore, it'll also be their fourth consecutive title, a feat that has never been achieved before.
