An Amazing Pep Guardiola Stat Emerges After City Beat Swansea 4-0

An Amazing Pep Guardiola Stat Emerges After City Beat Swansea 4-0

"I want to win against any opponent and I'm not scared of any team".

"We don't want to be in same position as past year and I am confident we can do it because the group is good and we train well".

After the controversy of their weekend derby victory over second-placed Manchester United, there was an irony to Guardiola's post-match press conference at the Liberty Stadium.

After all the complaints about loud music, Pep Guardiola simply put on a record.

In October 2016, Tottenham became the first side to beat City in the 2016-17 season with a 2-0 win at White Hart Lane.

"We need to keep our foot on the gas, keep going and hopefully that will see us through". "We'll go there and relish it".

We can lose, we can drop points but complacency, never happened in the past, the present or the future.

Swansea, who are bottom with 12 points, ended a seven-game run without a victory when they beat visiting fellow strugglers West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. It was nearly a carbon copy of what happened against Brighton - easy cross, centre-half has nearly ducked out of it and the goalkeeper rooted to his line.

"They're a good side, they're showing how good they are but so are we".

"But games like that aren't and won't define our season".

"There are a lot more tasks waiting for us, especially I think in December because of all the games".

"But we need to focus on us and how well we are doing".

"At times it was terrible to be on the sideline watching that, seeing my side trying but suffering for long periods". For me, one of the best sides I have ever come across.

"So many good athletes, so many intelligent footballers and it's really hard to pin them down".

They say there are no easy games in the Premier League, but this was as straightforward as it gets with City enjoying 78 per cent possession.

We're going to go into the game confident on the back of two Premier League wins.
