Pep Guardiola lauds Joao Cancelo for his performance against Newcastle

Pep Guardiola believes they were lucky against Newcastle United.

The Cityzens have now won seven Premier League games in a row and sit comfortably at the top of the league table.

Pep’s side have won 14 Premier League games this season which is the most for any other club.

Guardiola also praised Cancelo for his superb solo goal in the first half of the game.

“A good result, not a good performance. We were lucky but Newcastle did not defend well for the first goal and a brilliant action from Joao Cancelo for the second goal. The first half was one of the worst we have played this season and second half was much better,” Guardiola said.

“We played better with the ball, gave players more touches but were losing balls in the first half. We were calm at half-time and spoke about what we should do.

“It was a fantastic goal (from Cancelo), we know the quality he has in the final third and he dribbled and did it.

“Records show consistency we have as a team, it is not winning titles or finals but it is winning and winning. Records are there to be broken and happy to have them.”
