- On the contrary, Man City have been brilliant so far and are the only team yet to drop points
Pep Guardiola has given his verdict on Manchester United and Chelsea following their poor starts to the new Premier League season.
The two English giants have endured a difficult start to the campaign and are rooted in 13th and 14th, respectively, in the EPL table.
United have managed just two wins in five of their opening matches, with three other fixtures ending in defeats against Tottenham, Arsenal, and Brighton.
According to Metro UK, Chelsea, on their part, have managed just one win in five outings, with the victory coming against newly-promoted side Luton Town.
The Blues have picked up five points in the process, having settled for a drab draw in their latest outing against Bournemouth.
Pep backs Chelsea, United to improve
Despite Chelsea and Man United struggling for form and results, Guardiola has backed the two teams to get back to winning ways.
The City boss is adamant the Blues and United have what it takes to build on their current poor form and improve.
"Well they didn’t start like I think they expected, like Chelsea, but always Man United, Chelsea, sooner or later they take the rhythm," Pep said via Metro UK when asked about United’s start.
"But it is important for us, after winning the treble, [winning] five from five is really, really good," he added.
