Manchester City's head coach, Pep Guardiola, shared his thoughts on the match against Arsenal (1:0).
«We started the game well, created two or three moments. Arsenal started the second half very well and found the right rhythm. The game was even, and the goal came from a deflection. Congratulations to our opponent.
We tried our best. There were few chances for both teams. Both teams successfully pressed high. We lost the match because of one action.
We lost to Wolverhampton in the previous round and have two consecutive defeats. There's a break for international matches ahead, and I hope that when the players return, they will all be healthy. After that, we will continue working. We know exactly what we need to do, and we will do it.
We can't deny that Rodri's absence affects us. We fielded players capable of controlling the ball through passes. Still, Arsenal played aggressively in all areas,» said Guardiola.
Manchester City has dropped to third place in the Premier League.
