Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has once again defended his methods following an embarrassing loss at the King Power stadium on Saturday. City have struggled lately despite flying out of the blocks at the beginning of their campaign with ten straight wins.
The Citizens have now won just four in their last fifteen games, suffering a 3-1 loss to Chelsea and a 4-2 loss to Leicester. Jamie Vardy’s hat-trick condemned them to a defeat which they could hardly complain about as they were outplayed for much of the encounter.
Pep said in his post-match conference, “It is not about the system. We defended well with these players at the beginning of the season.
“Now we have to stand up and analyze what happened, especially mentally to encourage the players to step forward.”
“I want to play the football I feel,” He added.
“I cannot say we played badly or didn’t play without the intention to create.
“Always I try to control the games so we concede few goals, in here I cannot do that and I have to analyze why.
“I want to win games, I don’t want to lose games. I feel what I feel and in the Premier League there are some special things, but the pitch is the same. What I believe is good and will be good.”
City face in-form Watford midweek and will require a command performance to convince the doubters.
