Manchester City have come back with a vengeance as they beat Norwich 5-0 in the first match at home with scores of adoring fans in the background.
This time City played well from whistle to whistle and concluded more than a few chances to score.
Pep and his men proved they can play well and even if its just Norwich this win was much needed after last week’s stinker.
A win, clean sheet and we move, on to the reaction-
Pep Guardiola Reaction
“This result was the consequence of how many good things we have done,”
“We are still not at the top – there are still many things to do. We trained, we were refreshed, happy for these first points.... hopefully they will not be the last!”
“He’s a player who likes to be wider than central position,” he said.
“One of the reasons why I’m a manager is when you can work with people and humans like Gabriel.
“Hes never complains, he plays five minutes, he plays the best five minutes he can do.
Jesus is happy on left, right or centre and today the connection with Kyle was exceptional.
“I’m pleased with his performance; he was involved in three of our goals and is an Incredibly important player for us.
“He made an exceptional performance today, and I repeat, if he plays three minutes he plays the best three minutes for the club and everyone.
“When Raheem was here when I first arrived he didn’t have goals in his mind and we immediately changed his arrival.
“Today he scored because he arrives in the centre, he’s a machine there.
“He changed his mind and decided he was going to score. Jack has this mentality to score goals and win games as well.
“But if he has the Raheem mentality then he can do it, too.”
