Pep Guardiola gives honest verdict on Man City struggle

This run of draws is the longest City have gone without three points since Guardiola&aposs first campaign – his only year without a trophy at the Etihad. And while the Blues boss insists his team are playing well, he was forced to admit that after a third game of being pegged back in the league, they are struggling to get the results they need.

City have led against Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham but have conceded eight goals in those three fixtures – as many as they have let in in their other 11 matches combined. That has to be a concern, although Guardiola prefers to judge his side by the minimal chances they are giving the opposition.

“Tottenham are happy for the point, we are a little bit less happy but the performance is similar to what we have done lately. People say we are concerned about the goals we concede but how many chances did we concede? Its ridiculous,” he said.

“We concede nothing but every time for our mistakes and the quality of the opponents we concede a goal and, after, it is more difficult. Still, there are a lot of games and that is the point.

“We&aposre in that position where it&aposs happened lately so let&aposs challenge that situation. Good teams are not defined by good things and moments, it&aposs not the first time we have faced this situation where we are playing good but the results don&apost come.
