Guardiola hails ‘incredible’ Man City after vital Burnley win

Pep Guardiola has hailed ‘incredible’ Manchester City after they returned to the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win at Burnley.

Sergio Aguero’s second half goal was enough to seal a vital win for Guardiola’s side, who are now just two wins from retaining the title.

City dominated proceedings at Turf Moor, restricting Sean Dyche’s side to few opportunities and Guardiola was left impressed following a controlled performance from his side.

”We didn’t concede one shot on target or one corner, we are a small team but we are smart, in the first half the pitch was so dry and it was slow but in teh second half we knew we had to score our goal,” Guardiola told the BBC.

“We controlled the long ball and we had chances to score the second goal – in the last minutes anything can happen, always it is diffcult if you cannot close the game.

“In the first half we didn’t create too much but of course it is what it is, we knew in these kind of games you play with intention and 92 points is incredible – it is in our hands, we must win our next two games and our next one against Leicester.”
