Guardiola proud of 'phenomenal performance' against Liverpool!

Pep Guardiola has hailed Manchester City for their historic win at Anfield.

“What was important was the three points,” he said afterwards.

“Of course, I’m so proud of the guys who have broken a record that has stood for a long time, that shows how difficult it is and hopefully next time we can do a similar performance with people here.

“Anfield without people is completely different because I could imagine being at 1-1 and how different the influence would be on their players.

“But we reacted so well, nobody stepped back, everyone stepped forward with a huge personality. Raheem Sterling had an incredible game, like last season, but a phenomenal performance.

“The commitment from the guys in the stands who did not play supporting their team-mates.

“Three points and I’m grateful for this victory, but tomorrow, feet on the ground and we think about Swansea.”

“I didn’t say anything at the break,” he explained.

“The players made the decision themselves and  they handled the situation themselves and the players in the middle were fantastic.

“The players in the middle  – especially when you react after missing a penalty against Liverpool at Anfield.

“We missed one here three years ago in the 88th minute when Riyad [Mahrez] didn’t score, then Kevin [De Bruyne] at home and today Gundo, so once again it was tough for us mentally.

“At half-time we didn’t say one thing about the penalty miss, we just had to control their movements better – Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are so dangerous  – and after the quality of the players made the difference.”
