Pep Guardiola remains an adamant man that opponents have not called out City’s cards.
City drew a blank in their 2-0 defeat to Spurs and have now just scored 9 goals in 9 games. However, Pep is denying their is a problem with opponents figuring out City.
“Do you think we change from the first season?” Guardiola responded at his pre-match press conference. “The first action was not a counter, they ran two times in 90 minutes and the second one they were brilliant. We conceded one, two counter-attacks, another was offside and no more.
“We shot more, crossed more, didn’t concede a corner. We cannot expect to create a lot against Tottenham but even with that we tried to find a way but even with that we created.
“Aside from Liverpool, all teams defend so deep and we have to find a way to avoid but I don’t think counter-attacks are the big problem, I think the fluidity to attack is the target that we and I have to improve to know exactly what we have to do.”
City are up next against Olympiakos with the Spanish coach determined to fix his team’s attacking problems.
