Wayne Rooney believes that Manchester City still have a long way to go before they can be considered as one of the best teams in Premier League history.
Pep Guardiola’s side thumped Tottenham 4-1 on Saturday to record a 16th straight win and open up a 14-point lead over Rooney’s former club Manchester United before their clash with West Brom on Sunday.
Rooney scored in Everton’s 1-1 draw with City in August – the only Premier League game that they have dropped points in – and the former England captain is convinced that Guardiola’s side will drop further points over the remainder of the campaign.
“I’m not sure they are quite there. They would have to keep going and do a lot more,” he told talkSPORT.
“There have been so many great teams throughout the years in the Premier League. This City team needs to win trophies and needs to do it for a longer period to be in that bracket.
“The best ever? I would go with the Man United team from 2008!
