Guardiola: Counter-attacks lost the game for Man City

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admitted that his side struggled to play their usual game as they fell to a 2-0 loss to Wolves.

Adama Traore scored a late brace for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to condemn City to their first defeat at home in 2019 – leaving the champions eight points adrift of early pacesetters Liverpool.

Guardiola confessed to BBC Sport that Wolves caused them many problems throughout the 90 minutes.

“We started decent, quite well but conceded counter-attacks,” he said. “We were not at our best and when you concede a fast counter-attack, we had chances to score but it was a bad day and lost the game.

“We did not make good process, we had problems in that sense. We are a team that plays a specific way but it is a bad day, that happens sometimes.

“Kyle Walker [who was taken off at half-time] did not feel good, he did not train well after an infection and we had to change him. Our process was not quite quick and that is why we had problems.

“When you win games, you think about the other one. Now we have the international break, then can come back and go to the other games.”
