Pep Guardiola believes City will rekindle the form which heralded a ten-game winning run at the start of the season.
The Blues fell to defeat at the hands of title rivals Chelsea on Saturday, conceding three times and ruing a host of missed chances, but the manager insists the results will soon match the performances once again.
“We will improve,” he said. “We can play better and better, then we will concede fewer chances and score more goals. That is what we will do in the next period.
“We go game by game. We understood the best way was to attack Chelsea as much as possible, like we did.
“We played quite well against a good team. I saw many Chelsea games in the week and I knew how many times the openings arrive: few. They may have one or two chances per game but they have huge quality.
“Chelsea created chances because we had too many players in front, trying to create chances.
“They are clinical and so, so good in that process.
“We lost – we have to be in control a bit more and more aggressive in some cases. I am satisfied with the way we played. In the last two games, we were happy because we won but there was worry and I said we have to start to play better, like at the beginning of the season.
“In my career, we have conceded few goals because we have to dominate the ball to create chances.
“Always, we have something to improve.”
