Thanks to two fantastic first half goals from Ruben Dias and Bernardo, City had enough to earn a wounded City a much needed 2-1 Premier League win at Aston Villa.
Despite being down several key players through injury, illness and suspension, Pep Guardiola’s scintillating champions produced a mouth watering opening 45 minutes at Villa Park topped off by two spectacular goals from Portuguese duo Dias and Silva.
A win, no further injuries and we move to keep pace on the top. On to the reaction-
Pep Guardiola Reaction
“The game we played was fantastic. It was a difficult game. We knew it. I understand why.
“Especially after conceding early in the second half, the way we reacted... we played really well.”
“Bernardo scored a fantastic goal. When a player has this quality it depends on them. He is a player on another level. Ruben has good personalities. He scored a really good goal.”
“I’m quite proud yeah. It means we have won some games! I didn’t know, they have told me in the flash interview.
“It’s a lot in the Premier League and we did it in a short time and it means what we have these years is all together.
“A big compliment for the whole club, the chairman and there is more to come”
