We Responded – Pep Guardiola Happy With Win Over Everton


Pep Guardiola has revealed that he was happy with Manchester City’s response against Everton in a 3-1 win, after his side lost their unbeaten Premier League record again Chelsea last weekend.

Manchester City took a two-goal lead thanks to a brace from Gabriel Jesus, but were pegged back by a Dominic Calvert-Lewin header in the 65th minute.

Guardiola's side quickly restored their two-goal lead, however, as Raheem Sterling came off the bench to score in the 69th minute.

Despite a third goal, Manchester City were under the cosh at times, but did well to keep the score at 3-1 and pick up the win.

Guardiola admitted that though he would have liked the team to control the game better, he was happy with the side’s response.

"It was a tricky game coming after Hoffenheim on Wednesday. We responded well from defeat at Stamford Bridge”, Guardiola told Sky Sports after the game.

"Sometimes you need to take time to get into a rhythm.

"We scored the first goal but the beginning was tough.

“We started the 
second-half well, but our best moment was when we conceded a goal.

"They were physically strong and after 2-1 we were lucky to score 
a third one.

“We should have had more control after that.

"But now we have the League Cup and then the Premier League and we keep going."

With the win, Manchester City have opened up a two-point lead over second-placed Liverpool and will keep their place at the top of the table if the Reds fail to beat Manchester United on Sunday.
