That is according to midfielder David Silva, who believes the outcome of any season can only be judged on its results.
Manchester City won the Premier League title last year with Guardiola at the helm and also added the League Cup to a stellar year.
However, Pellegrini completed the same double in 2014, and Mancini picked up the league title and FA Cup – albeit in different seasons.
Guardiola’s side have received huge praise for the way they play the game having set numerous domestic records last term.
“But at the moment, we did the same as we did under Manuel [Pellegrini] or [Roberto] Mancini”
But the Catalan has failed to make inroads in the Champions League whilst also be knocked out of the FA Cup by Arsenal and Wigan.
Silva spoke to Sky Sports’ Patrick Davison and the Spaniard highlighted the need to better last season.
He said: “The club is doing well, which you can see on the pitch. This season, maybe we can do better than last season.
“At the end, I think it depends on the results so this season, we can win more than last season for sure.
But at the moment, we did the same as we did under Manuel [Pellegrini] or [Roberto] Mancini. We won the league and the cup and last season was the same.”
City are currently favourites to win this season’s Champions League and still harbour hopes of the quadruple.
They take on Chelsea later this month in the League Cup final hoping to retain the trophy they lifted last year.
A win over the same opponents today at home would allow them to regain top spot in the Premier League following Liverpool’s recent blip.
David Silva is looking to retain the Premier League for the first time in his career.
The Spaniard has three title medals but no side since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 2009 have managed to defend their top-flight crown.
The FA Cup – which has eluded Guardiola thus far in England – has seen several casualties in the early rounds with Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal already out.
City have drawn Newport in the fifth round and will travel to Wales next weekend.
