Pep Guardiola has said he has been overwhelmed with Manchester City's response to their Champions League exit as they moved back to the top of the Premier League. Sergio Aguero's second-half scrambled winner earned City a 1-0 victory at Burnley to move them back a point clear of Liverpool with just two games left for the rest of this season.
It was the third win in a week after victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United since their painful quarterfinal exit to Tottenham Hotspur just a week earlier. Do not want to lose their chance to win the Premier League trophy, Pep Guardiola knowing any slip would hand Juergen Klopp's side the advantage in the title race.
In a press conference, Pep Guardiola told the media how his player reacted with their mental strength after the miserable defeat from Tottenham Hotspur in UEFA Champions League quarter-final was very outstanding and overwhelming. Moreover, in recent games, they played without Kevin De Bruyne, without Fernandinho, without important players, and yet they play the way they used to play. And for now on, they just have to keep going with just two games left in Premier League.
With Only Two Games Left, The Competition Getting Fierce
Pep Guardiola tells slot casino Malaysia it is tough for Liverpool and it's tough for them. Aguero's goal was awarded with the help of goalline technology, which showed the ball over the line by fewer than three centimeters. Pep Guardiola was relieved that the goal was awarded. But he also said that his team should have a penalty when David Silva's shot struck Ashley Barnes on the arm, but with no video assistant referee, the decision wasn't reviewed.
With Pep Guardiola desperate to defend his one-goal lead as Burnley pushed for an equalizer, he brought on John Stone and Nicolas Otamendi for the final minutes, finishing the game with six defenders.
On the other side, Burnley boss Sean Dyche said he was proud that his side had forced City into kicking the ball into the corner in a bid to kill them. He said it's a compliment that he heard Pep Guardiola screaming to his player to get in the corner. He also thought it was refreshing to hear a top manager scream to his players.
