Manchester City midfielder Rodri has insisted that the Citizens are happy with how they have performed this season.
Nevertheless, City have achieved domestic success by winning the EFL Cup, and Rodri believes that the Citizens can be proud of their campaign.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Rodri said: "Sometimes football is like this. Liverpool have been amazing this season in the Premier League. They have focused their entire mentality on the Premier League only and in these situations the only thing you can do is clap.
"But we've had many problems this year. We have had lots of injuries and important players out but it's not been a bad season for us - we're second.
"Okay, it's not where we want to be but sometimes it's like this and we have to keep going. I think we are proud of the season we've done.
"We already have two titles (Community Shield and League Cup) and we have a chance to get another two including the Champions League.
"I think it's not a bad season so for me from an individual aspect I'm really happy with our season."
Guardiola's side also remain in contention for the FA Cup and the Champions League.
