Pep Guardiola praises his players after convincing away win at Stoke City


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was "pleased" with what he saw at the Bet365 Stadium as his side eased past Stoke City by 4-1.

The Citizens kept their 100% record in the English Premier League with Sergio Aguero and Nolito twice on target.

They host Steaua Bucharest next in the Champions League before facing West Ham United at home next Sunday.

"Everything [pleased me], we travelled here and won the game," he said after the game.

"I am really impressed with the players as human beings and with their performance.

"We have only had one month together - there is time to get better.

"It was a pity about the penalty in the first minutes of the second half.

"In the first half, we played good and just missed the last pass. We arrived many times in the box with one against one.

"We created a lot of counter attacks in the second half - good situations - but the last pass was not good.

"We have to try and finish the action.

"It is always tough to play here. With the corners it is difficult and the crowd is amazing - congrats to Stoke for the support. They push the players and the referee for absolutely everything.

"They always had long balls to create something. They have a lot of quality with the likes of Bojan and Arnautovic, and we were lucky Shaqiri was not there.

"We defended high and compact with the second ball."
