‘We fight to chase Arsenal and they are not used to being in this position’

Guardiola hails 'one of the best performances in my seven years at the club' after 4-1 defeat of Liverpool

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has told BBC Match of the Day his club will continue to chase Arsenal for the Premier League title after watching his side demolish Liverpool 4-1 at the Etihad on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking after the game, the Spaniard hailed the incredible performance put up by the players and revealed they will continue to chase league leaders Arsenal who are in an unfamiliar position at the top of the log.

“From the first minute until the 93rd minute, it was almost the perfect performance. Even 0-1 down, we were playing well and Jack [Grealish] made a good save to stop a potential 0-2.

“The way we played, the way we found our spaces for how they defend. Our intensity, high pressing.

“Of course, we fight to chase Arsenal and they are not used to being in this position – always in the last few years, they fight to win the Premier League and all the competitions.

‘Last season they were two games from a quadruple and now they are playing to be in the top four – it would be incredibly difficult for us as well.

“As a part of that, you have to perform the way we performed. We were so stable and stuck to the plan. All the players were magnificent.

“Always we have fought against Liverpool, the way they defend, the way they play is so difficult for us. But today the players were magnificent. We played really well in all departments so hats off to our players.

“Tell me one player who didn’t play well? There was no one who was not playing well.
