SportsTalk December 17th: In the Premier League match that ended early this morning, Beijing time, Manchester City was tied 2-2 at home by Crystal Palace. In the post-match interview, Guardiola was furious with his team’s performance.
At the post-match press conference, Guardiola said: “We are not unlucky, but we deserve it. We gave it away for nothing. Two points, for ourselves, we gave away a penalty, which we deserved. You look at the chances we created and the goals we conceded, it’s very similar to the game against Chelsea. (The penalty was also tied).”
Guardiola also said his attacking players struggled against Crystal Palace’s low tackles and accused them of not achieving More goals. Guardiola added: “We have 10 players in the 18-yard area and there is such space and they have to be patient. With that method of play, we will never create any chances. We are still not good at finishing the game. Not stable enough.”
