Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has said he does not expect his team to win every game after they lost 3-2 at Norwich this evening.
Man City equalised twice in the game after goals from Sergio Aguero and Rodri, but Kenny McLean, Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki made sure it was complete 3 points for Norwich.
Speaking after the game, Pep said he expects results like that.
His words, “I know what we are as a team,”
“I know what they have done, what we are going to do again, and I love my players.
“It’s a pleasure and an honour to be with them. This is the challenge at the high level.
“People cannot expect us to win or pick up 100 points all the time. We’re going to recover, we go to play in Europe now and then we will come back.”
On his CB pairing, “How many games have John and Nico played together in these, more than three years together?”
“A lot. Thanks to them, we have won, so we cannot analyse just the last eight or 10 games.
“They are the central defenders we have, we don’t have any more. We have Fernandinho who can play there, we can maybe play Rodri there. It’s not a worry.
“Normally I count how many chances [our opponents] create and I think they didn’t create too much, honestly. So there was the three goals, but I don’t know how many other shots on target they had, how many chances.
“I don’t have that feeling, that they had many, many, many chances. It happens sometimes. For example, Bournemouth, they had more chances than [Norwich had] today, and we won that game. But of course you have to improve.”
