Pep wants more goals after City maul Burnley

The 31-year-old stopper, now at Burnley, spent 12 years on City's books after joining the Manchester outfit from Shrewsbury Town in 2006 - helping the club win two Premier League titles, two League Cups and an FA Cup during a mostly impressive career between the sticks.

"I think if he gets the right support around him he can go on to whatever he wants".

"I think I got it and luckily he wasn't injured".

Pep Guardiola's side have started the season in the same vein of form as past year and now sit top of the Premier League after nine matches, unbeaten with 23 points to their name.

Man City star Bernardo Silva says his side are extra hungry for more glory this season.

"The second half Bernardo [Silva] moved better in that position and we made a good performance".

Guardiola's wish for a goalkeeper more comfortable with the ball at his feet firstly saw Claudio Bravo and then Ederson arrive at the club in the Catalan's first two seasons in charge.

"He scored an incredible goal [against Burnley], but an aggressive approach with the ball to go to the full-backs, the movement between the full-backs, especially in the second half with Phil, [Foden] was so good".

It looked like a good opportunity had gone begging as Sane passed rather than shooting, but Mahrez rescued the situation by gathering the stray ball and beating Hart with an exquisite curling shot from just outside the area. In the 17th minute David Silva and Leroy Sane conspired on the left flank, edging closer to the Burnley goal - Silva found the space to send a low cross into Aguero's path and the Argentine calmly swept in the opener.


"The strikers press from the front and make sure we recover the ball fast so we don't concede too many chances".

"He's such an important player for us".

The England goalkeeper was part of the City team who ended their 35-year wait for a trophy by winning the FA Cup in 2011, before securing their first league title since 1968 a year later.

"It can't be underestimated what an impact he's had on helping to build this place and make it what it's become today".

This was just the sort of afternoon Guardiola would have hoped for before a draining trip to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Guardiola confirmed right-back Walker missed the game as a precaution after returning from worldwide duty with a groin problem.

Manager Pep Guardiola is hopeful Walker will recover from a groin problem in time but he is now a doubt.

The match would have had a different complexion had referee Jon Moss judged Kompany's first-minute tackle on Lennon more harshly.
