Chelsea 4-4 Man City: What Guardiola said

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a good advert and entertaining game for the Premier League and both teams wanted to win. I wouldn't have expected differently Chelsea have a fantastic team and players.

"And we know they always play good against fantastic side. We took the game [to Chelsea] it was difficult to control and they had quality from Cole Palmer and Mykhailo Mudryk.

"The players to dribble and run it was difficult to control the game - they were aggressive."

"We have momentum [during the game] two or three transitions one-on-one which we could not finish, but the game was in the moment at the end.

"A tight game, but a fair result. I congratulate the team, we go into the break and we qualify for the Champions League and we comeback [after international break] and go."

On whether he preferred a 1-1 result: "It is, what it is. I prefer to win 7-0 but it is not happening at that level they [Chelsea] are fantastic team.

"I do not know the average [attempts on goal] but at the end both teams tried to do it and do what they needed to do."
