Pep Guardiola has expressed his frustrations after Manchester City could only pick a point against Everton in the Premier League on Saturday despite being awarded two penalties.
Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero both missed from the spot as City came from behind to earn a point against the Tofees thanks to Nolito’s goal but the former Barcelona coach says he;s frustrated with the result as it was a game he thought they should have won.
“I’m not frustrated,” he said during the post-match interview.
“Sometimes you play bad, and you win… and then today.
“My team will be judged but never will I change the way I want to play football: it’s the only way I have. My teams play the way I want. During that process, there are problems. We improved a lot from what happened in Tottenham and Celtic.
“We made a good performance. We need to improve on that and keep going.”
When asked whether City should practice their penalties, after De Bruyne and Aguero’s misses, Guardiola replied: “I don’t have time to practice everything I want to practice!
“You can practice penalties but there is no pressure there – penalties in the crucial moment are penalties.
“When we missed a penalty in the first half, they had to be more open. We found the spaces in the first 30 minutes – we arrived on the byline but no-one was there.
“We created enough chances to win the game. They had one chance – it was good action from the striker. We did everything. We cannot be too disappointed because we have to travel to Barcelona.”
