Premier League He had never been so down, or so far from the lead, or with so few points after 12 duels
The 'ghosts' of Guardiola again made an appearance in the defeat against Liverpool (3-1). The picture was not bad, but The former Barcelona and Bayern still don't know what it is to win at Anfield as a coach.
He also lost his hand to hand with Jurgen Klopp. They have faced, to date, 18 times and the 'result sheet' throws a favorable balance for the coach of the 'Pool': nine wins, two draws and seven losses.
But the worst, obviously, is not the 'head to head'. The one that already is more worried, look where you look, the worst start of Guardiola's Manchester City as a coach. There is more. It is the worst beginning of his career as a coach.
I had never been so down – fourth march – on the table. His worst classification, after 12 days, was the third place he held in 2016-17. So, however, I was only one point behind the lead.
Nor had he ever been so far from the head.The City, after 12 days, stands at nine points! from Liverpool. The worst disadvantage he had with the first classified at this point are the three points that Real Madrid scored from Jose Mourinho in 2011-12. Nothing to do with the eight points that paradoxically surpassed United de Mou in 2017-18.
It is also the least amount of points of a Guardiola team after 12 league games. The City has 25 units, two less than in what was its worst record to date: the 27 points of 2016-17, Pep's first campaign in the Etihad.
Trace, in any case, is not something new for Guardiola. Last season, without going any further, he turned around the eight-point row that the 'reds' had. We will see if this course is capable of performing an even greater crush.
