Guardiola: We ‘fought like never before’ against Stoke

Date published: Wednesday 8th March 2017 10:48

Pep Guardiola was proud of his Manchester City players’ fight during their frustrating 0-0 draw with Stoke on Wednesday night.

The Citizens couldn’t break down the Potters stubborn rearguard and the result now means they are 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea having played the same amount of matches.

With only 11 games to go until the end of the season it now looks like a tough task to catch Antonio Conte’s men but Guardiola is remaining upbeat despite the dropped points.

“Frustrated is a tough word,” Guardiola told Sky Sports. “We didn’t win but we didn’t lose. We created a lot of chances and they didn’t. We tried. We made everything and fought like never before.

“In the second half we were much better. At high levels you have to play every three or four days and you have to get used to it. To play in three competitions is not easy when the opponent is playing for one or two, but it is what it is. We go to Middlesbrough in two and a half days and we will prepare mentally to win the game.”
