Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen has admitted it’s difficult playing against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side.

Manchester City came from 2-0 down to beat Crystal Palace 4-2 on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.

“It’s really, really hard,” the Dane said. “Last season we didn’t concede against them, it was a bit similar games but we had that little luck so they didn’t score when they had big chances.

“And today we didn’t [have that luck], that’s football sometimes.

“It’s so difficult to play against City, because you need to expect the unexpected, they will find that little metre of space.”
