Pep Guardiola praised Manchester City’s professionalism and focus after they breezed into the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 5-0 win over Burnley.
Man City are in sensational form in front of goal of late, scoring 28 goals in their last six outings, keeping six clean sheets along the way, as they put their pre-Christmas blip well and truly behind them.
Goals from Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero, plus a Kevin Long own goal, delivered the latest hammering and speaking after the game, Guardiola worryingly said that his side still have a ‘desire to improve’:
“I’m delighted to have won the game, we have a lot of games in our life, and everyone was so professional and so focused,” the former Barcelona boss told the BBC.
“There is a desire to play good and always improve. Everybody wants to play and you have to play good when they do because the others are at a high level. It is our eighth victory in a row in this month and of course we have scored a lot of goals. Everyone wants to help the team but there is always something to improve – today they (Burnley) had one or two chances which we gave them.
“The important thing is we create more and concede fewer and in every game we try to play, play, play as much as possible.
“It is important for everybody we know the tradition and here the FA Cup is so important. We want to go through and we want to play the later stages.”
