Pep Guardiola: The quality of our players made the difference


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was full of praise for his players after their easy 4-0 win against Bournemouth.

The Citizens are yet to drop points in all competitions.

They will face Swansea City twice next week, on Wednesday in the League Cup and on Saturday in the English Premier League.

"The important thing is we won just a few days after a Champions League game," Guardiola said.

"The Champions League is tough mentally so to recover from that is something that makes me happy.

"The quality of our players made the difference. I'm very happy because I know the quality of the team we have beat and that King is a quality striker. I'm happy because people will be so proud when the famous players run without the ball.

"Kevin [De Bruyne] is a special player.

"Without the ball he's a fighter and with the ball he's clear, he sees everything. Every time he decides the right decision and we are lucky to have him. Hopefully he can keep playing the amazing football.

"Of course he is one of the best there is no doubt about that but to win prizes will depend on the team winning titles."
