Pep Guardiola has hailed Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage as an ‘incredible result’.
First-half goals from Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero saw City win for the seventh league game in succession, and returned Guardiola’s side back to the top of the Premier League.
Guardiola was full of praise for his side’s performance at Craven Cottage, hailing the opening period as one of their finest displays of the season so far.
”Our first 15-20 minutes was one of the best of the season. We played with incredible spirit, we could have scored more. After the goals we controlled it,’’ Guardiola told Sky Sports.
“It was an incredible result after the international break and having played away. We did what we should do.
“At the end of the match, maybe the players were tired. We will be back in our rhythm.
“After the break playing at home is different to playing away. Always you have doubts about how they’re going to react.
“It’s important to have the rhythm. Kevin [De Bruyne] we wanted to give 90 minutes but maybe there was tiredness in his legs. We will not win the Premier League with 11 players.
“Liverpool and Man City have done incredible so far so deserve the credit. We will have 80 points with six games to play if we win next week.
“Enjoy the moment and dream to win another game.”
