The Spaniard saw his side beat Brighton in a hard-fought 1-0 to go four points behind log leaders Manchester United with a game in hand.
Guardiola was impressed with his opponents, finding special words of praise for coach Graham Potter and several Brighton players, including Tau.
"We were in front of the best English manager right now. You have to be a top side to play that way," he said, as quoted by the Brighton & Hove Independent.
"I am more than delighted to (have possession of) the ball, most of the time in the game.
"The quality they have, they show it. They have good players, good build-up.
"The two central defenders, (Lewis) Dunk and (Adam) Webster, are fantastic.
"Every pass makes sense. Their movement between the lines up front makes sense. Every player is in his position to get the ball and be free.
"The people up front are so fast, with (Percy) Tau, (Neal) Maupay, until the last minute."

Guardiola also pointed out why Brighton are struggling in the relegation fight before making the bold claim that he would love to play for them.
"They are struggling to score goals, that's why they are in the position," he added.
"Last season, when we played away, we had already qualified for the Champions League. We were relaxed, they were struggling and felt the pressure.
"We won 4-0 at home (last season), but 1-0 today at the end was good.
"As a spectator, I like to watch these teams. I like watching Brighton play. I recognise it.
"When I was a football player, I would love to play in this team."
