Late wins show what we are, says Guardiola

Pep Guardiola demands Man City show 'respect' to struggling West Ham

Pep Guardiola demands Man City show 'respect' to struggling West Ham

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola is happy to have his own version of "Fergie time" after Manchester City again scored a late victor to clinch a 2-1 win over West Ham United in an English Premier League (EPL) match.

West Ham defender Pablo Zabaleta had a special message for fans of Manchester City as he made his return to the Etihad Stadium to play against his former club on Sunday.

David Moyes's team threatened to end City's unbeaten record - which stands at 28 matches - when they took the lead through Angelo Ogbonna, but Nicolás Otamendi equalised before Silva secured a 13th straight win.

City have already scored 11 goals in the final 15 minutes of league games this season - more than Swansea and Crystal Palace have managed in total - with those goals earning nine points, without which City would be second in the table behind rivals United. 'We started really well but we lost our patience, ' Pep told the BBC. We didn't have any rhythm because (West Ham goalkeeper) Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time (with the ball).

"No, hopefully we don't have injuries", he said. It's a big victory. "We played against a really good side and I thought for long periods we frustrated them". Kevin de Bruyne playing as the holding midfielder gave us the tempo.

"You have to try to solve it (when teams defend deep)". Some of the games we've had this season, I don't think we've been as good as that.

Star striker Sergio Aguero was substituted late on against West Ham having only taken two shots on goal for the match, yet Guardiola claims a recent dip in form is partly due to his recovery from a previous vehicle accident, coupled with more stringent opposition marking. It's complicated for us, and they obviously hold the game, and try to take advantage from a set piece.
