Manchester City may have had a record-breaking campaign, but Alan Shearer does not think that they can be considered "great" this early.
Pep Guardiola's men became the first team to touch triple-digit points in the Premier League. They also scored the most number of goals and won the most number of games in the history of the league.
Shearer, however, thought it's too early to consider City amongst the all-time greats.
"Manchester City have played some of the best football we have seen in the Premier League this season," Shearer told Coral.
I think it is too early to call them a great team but they have produced many great things this season. If they do go on to win it again next season, I think you’d have to revisit that. They have broken all sorts of records and have been excellent throughout the campaign."
"Pep will want to win back-to-back titles and he will be desperate to better their Champions League record. Let’s face it, he was hired fundamentally to try and win the Champions League. They had won the Premier League before under previous managers so he will have to try and win that to satisfy the owners."
After crashing out of the quarterfinals against Liverpool, the Citizens will aim to do well in the Champions League next season to truly establish themselves as European heavyweights. Guardiola must already have prepared his wishlist with City most certainly having the kitty to back the Catalan's requests.
