Pep Guardiola on what’s to come 👇

“West Ham, I said yesterday, they are an exceptional team with exceptional players. We struggled a lot against them before. No exception today.

“The people who expected City here now to win 4-0 after 20 minutes. That is completely out of reality.

“Leeds will be similar. Everton at Goodison Park. I saw their game against Leicester - the chances, how aggressive they are. It will be so tough.

“This type of game, it is important to be stable and patient. Five games left. In our hands.

“We have to try and go for it.”
