Pep Guardiola: Winning streak now over

Pep Guardiola has admitted Man City found life tough at Celtic Park after coming from behind thrice against Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Fernadinho, Raheem Sterling and Nolito all came to Man City’s rescue in a classic Champions League encounter and Guardiola has said it was a tough task that they ultimately should have emerged victorious from.

“It was difficult for us. I’m happy with the reaction from the players, it’s not easy to score three goals away,” said Guardiola to BT Sport.

“I don’t know how many the chances they had after the third goal. We should have won it.

“It’s disappointing to concede at the beginning of each half, but that’s football. I know how difficult it is here and they started so strong. The second goal was unlucky, and I don’t remember any action for them after they scored their third goal.

“It’s OK, it’s one point, we didn’t lose. You always learn. Now we have Barcelona, maybe the best team. We think about Spurs and, after the international break we’ll think about that.”
