Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has reacted to Manchester City’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday.

Guardiola said: “Good game. We conceded just one goal from one shot on target in 90 minutes. We were not precise in our final third touches and our simple things, especially in the first half. We had chances to score a second when the game was in our hands but we didn’t.

“We were better after the goal. But we were just not precise enough in the crosses, we missed a few situations and that’s why we could not score.

“They [Villa] defended well, they are well organised and physical. The way we defended we created enough chances to score goals, we defended well apart from one action.”
