Pep Reflects as Man City’s Loss Against Villa

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reflected on his side’s 1-0 loss at Aston Villa, admitting the hosts were better on the night.

Quoted after the Villa Park defeat, Guardiola said “Aston Villa were better than us. We struggled to make some process and after, especially when they defended with a medium block, we didn’t find the moments behind.”

Leon Bailey’s deflected strike condemned City to their fourth consecutive league match without victory.

The result leaves the champions in fourth, six points off Arsenal at the top, with Villa overtaking them into third place on the table.

Guardiola acknowledged Villa’s physical strength and ability to control aspects of the game, as their slump continued in the Midlands on Wednesday night.
