Manchester City have managed just 1 win in their last five games. Regardless, Pep Guardiola has insisted that his players are not low on confidence, adding that other aspects of the game like performances should also be analyzed and not just results.
The Citizens drew 2 all against Newcastle United away from home in the Premier League on Saturday to give Liverpool more control as the Reds now sit 11 points above them. They’ve also slipped 3 points below second-placed Leicester City in the log.
“You have to see how the players run, how far, how they try and the body language. We never give up. The team is always there, that is my feeling,” Guardiola told reporters.
“You (the media) analyse the result. Of course, it’s not good for us.
“I know it doesn’t count but I have to analyse the performance. The performance was good.”
Manchester City will now travel to face Burnley on Tuesday in the Premier League before Manchester United at the Etihad for the Manchester derby on Saturday.
