Manchester City returned to winning ways with a 3-1 triumph over Newcastle at the Etihad on Saturday. Below is the full post-match reaction from Pep Guardiola and the players on social media.
Pep Guardiola Press Conference
“We avoided two bad results in a row. We dropped two points against Palace and got it back against Watford. When you lose against Liverpool, you can shake hands with Jurgen Klopp and move on.
”The way we fought and the way we tried to play when they defended with many players in the box, that’s why it is so good.
”We were able to make a good combination in attack. I’m so satisfied. You always have doubts after the Liverpool loss as to how we react.
“I said we are not going to buy a striker because we have Sergio and in two or three weeks we will have Gabriel Jesus back. We are so happy for him. He didn’t touch the ball before the first and then he scored. He has a special gift.
“In the first half [Oleksandr Zinchenko] was outstanding. He is a talented player - we insisted he was aggressive in the duels. He is loved because he is very nice, he always has a smile in bad moments. Now he has a chance because Mendy is out for a while and Delph is too.”
