Pep Guardiola Reaction

“He is much, much better, better,” said Pep about Gundogan.

“It is not a big issue, but to avoid risk today, we have given him a few more days to recover,

“But for Arsenal and Borussia Monchengladbach he should be ready.

“What a player is all I can say,” on Bernard Silva

“Everything he does, he does incredibly well. The year we won a second Premier League title in a row, he was unstoppable and now he is back.

“Today, and tomorrow we enjoy but tomorrow afternoon we will think about Arsenal.

“This was a really tough game against a well organised Carlo team.

“It was difficult for wingers not easy to find space, so we were patient.

“We conceded one goal but not another. Goodison Park is always tough but incredibly satisfied with mentality.

“Lots of wins a row but still lots of desire, playing to get more, three points.

“It means and shows how special these players are,”

“Like Anfield we worked really hard and today was tough, they defended deep and are a really good team.

“We have a busy schedule and incredible few months ahead; we have Wolves and Southampton in one week as well so everyone will be involved.

“The schedule can get you depressed it’s too many games the guys need rest but it doesn’t matter.

“At the same time it is a beautiful challenge. Carabao Cup final back here for FA Cup and Everton show how tough it will be.

“We don’t look at the calendar just the next one, Arsenal after a few days we then travel to UCL, then West Ham, Wolves, United, non-stop.

“Recover well and try to win the next one. With the spirit we will continue to play this way, in every game we try to win with a good performance makes me feel grateful for these players.”
