Guardiola demands more from Man City players despite 3-0 Huddersfield win

You would think that Pep Guardiola would be a happy man after watching his side win 3-0 away from home, with goals coming from three different scorers, but you would be wrong, with the Catalan demanding even more from his Man City players.

Goals from Danilo, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane were enough to see Man City close the gap to league leaders Liverpool back to four points following the Reds 4-3 win over Crystal Palace yesterday.

However, despite the convincing nature of the scoreline, City were made to work for their win by the managerless Terriers, while only four of the Citizens 12 shots hit the target.

Speaking after the game, Pep Guardiola said that his side will need to improve if they are to continue to fight on four fronts.

“The way we played we didn’t deserve more than three goals. We will improve in the future. We have to demand more from ourselves in every game and do our best, but sometimes it’s difficult. They defended deep and man to man,” Guardiola told BBC Sport.

“What we have done so far has been incredible, in the league and the Carabao Cup. We have an incredible number of points. But this game can teach us and show what we have to do to improve.

“We’ve scored a lot of goals. So far, so good. One team has been better but we’re in January and there’s many more games to play. You don’t win or lose the Premier League in January. We have to focus on what we have to do. If Liverpool win, we have to win. And if Liverpool lose then we also have to win.”
