Pep Guardiola: Man City manager praises his 'outstanding' players

Pep Guardiola: Man City manager praises his 'outstanding' players

"Six goals against Chelsea is not easy and we are so pleased for this week".

City scored four times in the opening 25 minutes at the Etihad Stadium and twice in the second half to inflict Chelsea's worst defeat since 1991, with Sergio Aguero getting a hat trick and Raheem Sterling netting twice. Sarri's purist form of football, with goals, pace and ambition, worked well at Napoli - even though he did not win a trophy - but has not translated itself to English football. The only reason I came to City, the chairman and the people here, they believe in me and don't think badly when I lose.

Guardiola, whose side lead Liverpool at the top on goal difference, said: "After three games in a week - tough games against Arsenal and at Goodison Park - playing the way we played with this intensity and patience to find spaces in the right moments, the players were outstanding".

Guardiola added: "I know exactly what he wants to do".

"At the beginning we played better away than at home, now we play better at home, so something has changed and I am not able to see the reason, so I have to work for this", Sarri continued. We need to understand the reasons. I am worried about my team, I am worried about the performance but my job is always at risk so I am not worried about the club.

"I came to Manchester City - the bosses, chairman, [director of football] Txiki [Begiristain], he knows me. They played fantastic football and we made a lot of mistakes".

"But that result for City has confirmed after their hiccup, they're saying: 'We're bang at it, this is how we're going to finish the season". The people don't understand how hard it is to do something.

"If the president calls I'd even be happy, seeing as I never hear from him", Sarri said. "People expect with a new manager and buying players it comes immediately, but it needs time".
