Manchester City didn’t just beat United at Old Trafford, but they did it dominating on the pitch, looking in control in most of the game, and generally imposing their own rule, which is exactly what Pep Guardiola wanted, what people kept saying last season that it wouldn’t work in England, his playing style.
People said we couldn’t play the way we did in Barcelona in England. But it is possible and we did it
the Catalan told BBC, with a broad smile on his face.
The personality to play here is what I want. We can play this way in England. I knew that last season. Always I believed we could do it. Everyone can play how they want, that’s why football is so beautiful. I’m happy to go to Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford and to beat them in this way
the Man City manager said, having seen his team win 2-1, and extend their lead over second-placed United to 11 points.
This win means a lot in the way we played for our confidence. But in three days we go to Swansea in the winter time. We are going to face a lot of difficulties. In December it’s impossible to be champions but it’s good for us
Guardiola also said.
