Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola speaking to ITV: "From the statistics and the way we played I was really pleased.

"Today we performed incredibly well. Everything [pleased me], from minute one to 95th minute. We are trying to defend the title and coming here is difficult.

"We create a lot in every game and have courage with or without the ball so I’m really pleased."

On goalscorer Nathan Ake, Guardiola said: "He has incredible tempo in our set pieces and attack, and it's one of his best skills."
