Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola
The Manchester City head coach believes his side will be even better next season as they aim to wrap up another English Premier League crown with victory away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday afternoon.

Victory will secure back-to-back titles for the Citizens who set a Premier League record 100 points on their way to the league title 12 months ago.

Three points in Brighton will move City up to 98 points, and out of title rivals Liverpool's reach. The Reds are at home to Wolves at the same time, but will need a favour from the Seagulls if they are to stand any chance of lifting the tile at Anfield.

Despite winning their last 13 league matches, City hold just a point lead atop the standings, over a Liverpool side who have lost just once during the entire campaign.

"We will be better. Next season, we will be stronger," Guardiola said.

"We understand what we are going to do quicker. At the end, we haven't changed too much our patterns and the way we want to play.

"That's why everybody is more comfortable in understanding in what they have to do. It depends on how other teams want to defend.

"In general, I think especially in the Premier League, we were so consistent. In the Champions League, we were a little bit more vulnerable, I think because of the opponents, because of the tension, because of the desire to do well sometimes.

"But I think that is a process. At the end, we do many things better."
