Guardiola enthuses: These Man City players amazed me again

The Blues took full control early doors, with Bernardo Silva putting City 1-0 up in the space of 5 minutes when Aguero played the ball out wide to Bernardo, who cut inside from the left-hand side and drove a low shot past Sergio Rico in the Fulham goal.

With a comfortable lead and little threat from Fulham, City could afford its finishing being wayward after the break when Aguero came off injured.

Bernardo Silva opened the scoring in the fifth minute, cutting inside onto his left foot and powerfully finding the bottom corner from just outside of the 18-yard box.

'He decided on not continuing.

The Premier League returned to our screens yesterday as Manchester United and Manchester City picked up vital wins. "Playing away after the break is always hard, the players reacted very well", Guardiola told the Guardian.

"The first 15, 20 minutes was incredible with the way we played", he told the BBC.

"Liverpool and Man City have done incredible so far so deserve the credit".

"But if they manage to hold off Manchester City, one of the greatest teams we've ever seen in English football, it would be an astonishing prize for a club who have not won the title since 1990".

It drove me insane, I kept saying to him, we could miss out if we finish fourth and he was not having it, in his mind, Barcelona will beat Man Utd and it is laughable to even think of Tottenham as Champions League winners.

Manchester City could not have hoped for an easier start to a hectic final two months of the season as they remain on course for a quadruple of trophies.

"We have to win every game", Guardiola said.

"We have a tough, tough opponent - but that's the challenge". I'm pretty sure that after the effort today, in the next game our pace will be a little bit better.

So, if any fellow Gooner says to you, fourth is the target, fourth is good enough or any variations on that, you need to scream NOOOOOO, top three, it is top three we have to target. The players surprised me again.

"We need to go through all the details, what happened, what were the reasons".

Next up is another game against relegation-threatened opposition, with Cardiff going to City on Thursday.
