Pep Guardiola hails three Man City players after 0-0 draw with Arsenal


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hailed three of his players following their impressive display against Arsenal on Sunday.

Guardiola said the likes of Rico Lewis, Manuel Akanji and Rodri were unbelievable against the Gunners.

Both teams got a point each at Etihad Stadium after the match ended in a barren draw.

Speaking after the game, Guardiola said as quoted by Man City’s website:

“Rico, Manu, Rodri were unbelievable. The second balls against Arsenal are really important.

“The chances they have in first half, they press really well. In the second half, I couldn’t expect more.”

He added: “I recognise the intention we had. We take the point and in nine games we see what happens. The only thing we can do is to refresh mind and legs and go into Aston Villa.”
