Pep Guardiola: Manchester City playing quicker is key

Pep Guardiola: Manchester City playing quicker is key

Manchester City closed the gap to four points when Pep Guardiola's men were 3-0 comfortable winners against Huddersfield Town on Sunday afternoon.

City finish the match four points behind table-toppers Liverpool, while Huddersfield remain firmly rooted to the bottom of the table. "We will improve in the future", he said. They defended deep and man-to-man.

With City set to formalise their place in the Carabao Cup final next week - they have a 9-0 aggregate lead after the first leg of their semi-final against Burton - the trip to Everton on February 23 will have to be rearranged. We have an incredible number of points. We controlled the game. "We scored three goals and no goals against, so we did what we had to do". So far, so good.

It was a poor advert for the Premier League with Huddersfield, who look nearly certain to get relegated and who parted company with manager David Wagner this week, offering next to nothing as an attacking force. We have to focus on what we have to do.

Liverpool FC had to come from behind to seal three points as goals from each of their front three Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane secured a thrilling win. If United beat Liverpool - ideal - but if United beat us the situation is the same.

Huddersfield will have regretted failing to take advantage of City's lesser performance in the first half, which they drifted back into towards the end of the second, but the damage had by then been done.

The third goal arrived soon after as Aguero's neat flick played in Sane, who controlled well before slotting past the on-rushing Jonas Lössl. "I said thank you to all the players for what they have given me".

"I try to do my best and try to come back in the form I was in a year ago, but I am not used to playing every three days at the moment", he said. They were putting us under some pressure too and we know in the Premier League that a goal can come out of nowhere and at 1-1 it would be hard to get the win.

"[Pep] is always kind of relaxed most of the time and always tries to help us get solutions and he did it again at half time, you could see it was better in the second half".
