EPL: Pep Guardiola Praises Man United Team after ending their Unbeaten Run


Manchester United ended Manchester City’s 28-game unbeaten run with a shock 2-0 victory at the Etihad on Sunday, with early goals in each half from Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw stunning Pep Guardiola’s Premier League leaders.

United have been criticised for their lack of intent in these big fixtures this season but they were ahead inside two minutes thanks to a Bruno Fernandes penalty, after Gabriel Jesus had clumsily fouled Anthony Martial just 34 seconds in.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was quick to praise an incredible high pressing Unitd team who are so fast on counter attack.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola: “It was a fantastic game. United make incredibly high pressing and they are so fast on the counter. We played good. Unfortunately we couldn’t be clinical up front so we congratulate United.

“We will be the news because we lost. But the news is 21 victories in a row. There are still 30 points to play and we have to start to win again. That’s football. Sometimes it happens. We played much better than the game against West Ham which we won.”

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “When you come away with a 2-0 win, another clean sheet, and a performance like this, we’re delighted, of course. We knew it was a challenge, the first goal dictated a lot of what happened out there. We came in at half-time having played too much on the result that we were winning, but in the second half we got on the ball more and what a second goal, fantastic.

“Every game is different, but we went back to more of the kind of team we want to be. We were more direct, more straightforward, attacking play was positive and we got at them.”
