Pep Guardiola says Manchester City’s outstanding goalscoring record makes him ‘so proud’.
City beat rivals Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, taking Guardiola’s side to 157 goals in all competitions this season, with Sergio Aguero the club’s top scorer with 30 goals.
The Argentine has been ably assisted by the likes of Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva, with Guardiola instructing his side to play an attacking style.
The Spaniard admits the record pleases him, saying he wants his side to ‘attack every game’.
“I love to score a lot of goals and respect this game. I want to attack every game,” Guardiola told his pre-match press conference.
“I am so proud. Everyone was involved. Sergio and Gabriel score a lot, the wingers a lot. I am very pleased.”
City face Burnley this weekend knowing they are just three wins away from becoming the first side since Manchester United in 2009 to retain the Premier League title.
Guardiola’s side lead Liverpool by just a single point, whilst they will also face Watford in the FA Cup final next month as they bid to complete a domestic treble.
