Pep Guardiola claims simply winning matches, not more titles, is his main motivation as champions City begin their Premier League defence.

City, who won the league with a record 100 points last season, begin their new campaign away to the Gunners.

Guardiola said: “The target is to win on Sunday and then, after that, (against) Huddersfield and then Wolves. At the end we will see our level.

“I am focused on that, not focused on back-to-back (titles).

“Winning is the best motivation and we will try to continue what we have done. Last season we were so happy. Why not try it again?

“If we play good and we are consistent we have a chance to repeat the Premier League. If we don’t we are not going to win.”

City will be the first competitive opponents for Arsenal since the appointment of Guardiola’s fellow Spaniard Unai Emery as manager in place of the long-serving Arsene Wenger.

He said the players are looking forward to the new season with a sense of optimism and hopes to see that translated into a positive performance against the defending champions this weekend.

“We have a lot of ambition to start (well) on Sunday against the last winners of the Premier League,” Emery told a news conference.

“The opposition is demanding our best moments tactically and also individually. It’s for that on Sunday I want first to be together with our supporters.”
