After Saturday's FA Cup tie at League Two side Newport, Guardiola played down talk of a clean sweep of trophies, pointing to Manchester United's Champions League defeat by Paris St-Germain - which ended interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's unbeaten start as manager at Old Trafford - as evidence that winning runs can come to an abrupt halt.
