Guardiola: Our fans need to push us

Pep Guardiola says he wants City fans to push his players when needed.

Though happy with the victory, the boss believes recoveries like the turnaround against Spurs are the exception rather than the norm in the Premier League.

"Our fans have to push us, have to demand more, have to say they know how good we are," said Pep.

"Today we were lucky. 9/10 times we will come back like we did against Aston Villa. We were able to do it but we will not be able to do it every time.

“A lot of our jobs and our lives is to have passion for something. If we are comfortable, are you going to tell me we played bad in the first half? Absolutely not.

“In the first half against that team that makes a good build-up. What a striker Harry Kane is. Kulusevski, Son. The transition they have.

“I am sure Antonio will not agree with me, but they are a fantastic team."
