Pep Guardiola’s side went in a goal down at interval against David Moyes’ unbeaten side on Saturday, following James Ward-Prowse header to give Hammers the lead.

According to Matheus Nunes, Guardiola told his boys not to panic as they were playing well despite being behind.

“He said first to ‘keep going’ because we were playing well and creating chances,” Nunes revealed.

“We didn’t score but he said, ‘we were playing good and carry on’ and that’s what we did.”

Nunes who came up for his City debut in the 67th minute was delighted to play for his new club for the first time.

“It was very good – I was waiting for that since I arrived,” he said.

“I’m happy to make my debut today and to help the team get the win. I’m very happy to be here – it’s a very united team and very strong with a lot of quality players.

“I just enjoy being part of it. I try to do my best and that’s what my mentality is always like. Hopefully I can play my best every week and help the team. It doesn’t matter where I play, I just want to give my energy for the team and to help the team win every game. It’s been very good – everybody has been very friendly to me and helping me settle in as quick as I can. It’s only going to get better.

“Winning always gives us confidence. We just have to work the same way as always and keep going and keep building the confidence.”
