Guardiola pleased but Man City must be more ruthless

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was pleased with his players as they romped to a 3-0 win over Fulham – but claims they must get even more clinical in front of goal.

Leroy Sane, David Silva and Raheem Sterling delivered the blows to Fulham – as City made it four wins from five Premier League fixtures.

Talking to BBC Sport after the game, Guardiola said: “It could have been more than three goals, considering the chances we created.

“After an international break it’s always a mystery how you’ll come back, and Fulham asked us a lot of questions. They will have a good season and I want to give Fulham a lot of credit.

“But we were aggressive when we had the ball and we created chances. Today we had many, many clear chances to score and we need to work at scoring more.

“I believe in all the guys in my squad – Sane, for example, is only 22 and he realises why he hasn’t played many minutes. But he did well today.”
