“When we retained the title we were the first for 10 years so you know how difficult it is to do that,” said Guaridiola ahead of tonight’s visit of Burnley.
“And every season the opponents get stronger. Hopefully we can learn from the beginning to the season.
“After winning the Community Shield against Liverpool we dropped points may we didn’t expect,” he said.
“Liverpool will remain the strong team they are, but we are seeing how Chelsea are investing in this transfer market.
“We saw in the last period how Man United have made a step forward, Tottenham are going to recover a lot of injured players, with Son, Harry Kane and others and with an experienced manager like Mourinho they are always going to be strong.”
He added: “And Arsenal with more time with Mikel is going to happen and then Leicester.”
