Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has said that his team thrashed Liverpool 4-1 in the Premier League on Sunday evening at Anfield because his players started really well and adjusted their set up in the second half.

A brace from Ikay Gundogan and a strike each from Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden gave Guardiola’s side all three points against Liverpool.

“We played in the way you have to suffer here. Hopefully next time we can win here with people,” Guardiola told .

“Anfield is always impressive but with people it is much more.

“Huge victory for us. 3 more points at the end but I take into consideration the we won after we missed a and conceded a but the way we reacted… that made the difference.

“We started really well. We can’t play like they play, we’ve to play in a slow rhythm. Second half we adjusted our set up and the quality of the players did the rest.

He added, “Phil Foden is a guy who keeps the ball really well, he arrives so aggressive but he is also still so young. When he plays wide it is more easy for him, he will learn.

“The action for the second goal and the fourth goal, we know what a huge talent he is but he is still young and hopefully he can understand he can still improve.

“It is an important win but it is February. Of course the gap to fifth is big right now and that means for the Champions League for next season is important but 10 wins in a row in this period is something exceptional.
