Josko Gvardiol has expressed his delight after his goal helped City to a vital 2-0 Premier League victory at the City Ground.

The defender headed in expertly from Kevin De Bruyne‘s corner shortly after the half-hour mark to put us ahead, before substitute Erling Haaland secured the points with 20 minutes remaining, slotting into the bottom corner from De Bruyne‘s pass.

Gvardiol, who now has two Premier League goals, also won 100% of his attempted tackles and had 90 touches of the ball in an assured display in all areas of the pitch.


After the game, the Croatian said:

“It was really tough, we knew from the beginning of the game that it would be like that. 

“Especially because of the pitch because it was really dry, but again, it’s an important three points that we go back home with.

“My second goal in the league, I didn’t expect that I was going to score but I found myself in the position and it was a good goal in the end.”

The victory takes us back to within a point of league-leaders Arsenal, with Pep Guardiola‘s men still having a game in hand over the Gunners.


With four league matches left for City, Gvardiol has called for full focus from the squad to ensure we create history by becoming the first side to win four Premier League titles in a row.

“To be fair we need to be focused on ourselves, that’s what we’re doing,” he declared.

“Four more finals until the end, let’s do it.”
