Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has blasted Leicester City tactics following his team 5-2 defeat against the Foxes.
Manchester City got the lead via Riyad Mahrez’s strike but Guardiola aimed a jibe at Leicester City for their defensive approach, the manager was of the opinion that it is difficult to play a team that sit deep and doesn’t run.
It’s difficult when a team plays deep and doesn’t run. We need to be more patient, not chase the second and third goals. It’s tough, it’s not easy to accept, but we have to accept it.
‘Maybe we should let them get out more and then punish them on the counter attack.’
Jamie Vardy scored a hat-trick against Manchester City, though two of those goals were from the spot-kick, up next for Manchester City is the clash against Burnley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday while Brendan Rogers’ men will be up against West Ham on Sunday in the Premier League.
