EPL: Guardiola reveals why Man City beat Man Utd 2-0

Following Manchester City’s 2-0 triumph over Manchester United on Saturday, manager Pep Guardiola explained his tactical approach.

An Eric Bailly own goal put the champs in ahead after only seven minutes.

Bernardo Silva’s strike was deflected into the net by goalkeeper David De Gea on the stroke of halftime.

Guardiola noted after the game that his squad tried to assert control in order to slow down United’s players.

He said: “They [Manchester United] are so dangerous. That is why we had a game with a lot of control. If you let them run at Old Trafford it is a little bit like Anfield. They are built for that.

“We played the game we needed today. You have to play quick, to move the ball and do the touches every player needs but also try to put the ball in the pocket.

“The game was 2-0 and everything was comfortable. I felt I didn’t need to change.

“Three games now 27 left. We dropped points at home. Right now Chelsea are unstoppable. We know we cannot drop much points to be close to them but against the big six we performed well.
