"I don't believe in statistics. I believe in the spirit, in what I can smell, and the way we are playing and after the way we played against Tottenham I think we can do it. Even though we drew, that game showed we can do even better than last season," Goal.com quoted Guardiola as saying.
Guardiola said that if they want to do better then they need to maintain the way they are training.
"If we maintain the way we are training and the competitive feeling between the players then we can try to be better," he said.
