Our first-half performance was exceptional, particularly in the context of a somewhat depleted squad.
Ruben Dias struck from distance to give us the lead, before Bernardo Silva scored a goal of the season contender. His volley was emphatic, finishing off one of the most ruthlessly efficient counter-attacks you’re likely to see.
Ollie Watkins gave villa hope early in the second-half, but we saw the game out to seal a vital three points.
It was Pep Guardiola’s 150th Premier League win, a milestone he has reached in just 204 games. No manager in Premier League history has reached 150 wins quicker than pep. For context, it took Jose Mourinho 231 games Alex Ferguson 247 games to reach that number.
After the game we heard from pep and Ruben Dias, and joining us in the Matchday Live studio were Shay Given and Shaun Wright-Phillips.
