Guardiola told reporters:
“What they demand of us, they didn’t demand of our friends – at all.
“There is only one team that is going to ‘fail’ to win the Premier League, that is us. For the rest, [winning] it is a big success. Any team.
“In the end, if they don’t win – Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, everyone – it is normal because City should win.”
City will hope to return to winning ways against Luton at Kenilworth Road on Sunday.
