What Guardiola Said After Shock Norwich City Defeat

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola surprisingly played down the shock defeat to Norwich City during his post-match presser immediately after the game.

Newly promoted side Norwich City recorded the most unexpected result of the season till date following the 3-2 home win over Manchester City.

The Manchester City center-back pairing of John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi were atrocious to say the least during the game but the two players were defended by their manager.

Pep Guardiola was quick to point out that the partnership is not a new one and that they have played many games together.

The defeat is the first recorded by Manchester City in the Premier League in seven months and since the defeat to hosts Newcastle United in January.

The result also meant that the champions are five points adrift of league leaders Liverpool who maintained their perfect start to the new season with the comeback victory over Newcastle United.

The Reds had to do it the hard way to maintain their spotless start to the new season after conceding an early goal to Newcastle United last left-back Jetro Williams before scoring three goals to win the game 3-1.

Sadio Mane hit a brace in the first half before Mohamed Salah wrapped the points up with a third goal.
