Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted that he needs to find a new way for the team in order to achieve better results.

City suffered a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Wednesday night, which has dropped last season’s treble winners to fourth position behind Arsenal, Liverpool and Aston Villa.

The Spanish boss also spoke on the effect of Rodri’s absence on the game and the need to strategise to achieve better results.

“The results are not good and that’s why l have to sleep, look back at the games and figure it out,” said the Man City boss.

“Rodri is an important player of course but when he is not there we have to find a way to win without him.

“Six points [off the top] and we would prefer to be top of the league but we made three draws and lose today.

“In these years we have found a way to win games but we struggled a bit and we have to find a way.

“It is my job to find a solution. The dynamic changes by winning games. When a team is better you have to recognise it.”
