Pep Guardiola talks to the media after our goalless draw against Manchester United at the Etihad stadium.

Guardiola mentioned that "we played to win..." and when asked if his opposition arrived at the Etihad Stadium with the same mind set, he replied; "I am pretty sure United came here to try to win the game. I have never met one team, one opponent, or one player that doesn’t try to win the game."

That being said, City dominated the possession and much of the match against United, controlling 70% of the ball over 90 minutes.

"We played to win the game but again we were not able to and we need to look at why.

"In my career as a manager, I’ve played against all types of teams and different styles.

"I am not here to judge what my opponent does, but what we have to do to beat them."

Guardiola understands that City has to do more in order to secure three points in matches that seem to go in our favour. 

The manager goes on to mention that "our chances created to chances scored is very low so we need to think about the way we need to play."

City now have five matches left in the Premier League to try and secure a top four position, three at home and two away. Five wins out of five is a must to secure their own destiny.
