Guardiola ‘satisfied’ after 2-0 Arsenal victory

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola revealed that he was happy with his sides performance, after the defending Premier League Champions cruised to a 2-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates earlier today.

Guardiola’s side were at their free flowing best in the first-half and went in at the break 1-0 up courtesy of a Raheem Sterling strike.

Arsenal did start to come into the game a bit at the beginning of the second period, but the impressive Bernardo Silva slammed home from about 12 yards out on 64 minutes, which killed any hopes the Gunners had of getting anything out of their opening Premier League fixture of the season.

Speaking after the game, Man City boss Pep Guardiola praises his side’s effort in what was a ‘complicated’ game:

“Every season is a major season and this game was complicated but we played at a high level,” he told Sky Sports.

“We created a lot of chances and our performance was good. We keep going.

“We are satisfied for many, many reasons.

“At 1-0 we found a goal maybe we didn’t deserve but in the first half we deserved to score two or three more.”
