Guardiola, Kompany voice frustration as Burnley hold Man City

Date published: Saturday 3rd February 2018 3:01

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola rued his side’s failure to take their chances as they drew 1-1 at Burnley on Saturday.

A stunning strike from Danilo gave the visitors a first-half lead at Turf Moor but City were made to pay for missed chances, including an horrendous one from Raheem Sterling, as Johann Berg Gudmundsson levelled tthe scores with eight minutes to go.

Guardiola, speaking to Sky Sports: “We played so good, we just missed the last moment to try to score the second one and playing away in the Premier League, in the last 10 minutes anything can happen.

“I’m so happy for the performance, it was outstanding overall.

On Sterling’s miss: “Anything can happen in football – next game he is going to score.

“Ederson made two good saves, really good. But it was not the key point for dropping two points.

“Danilo scored a fantastic goal – he has the talent to score this kind of goal.”

City captain Vincent Kompany, added: “We never doubted this league was competitive. We were warned for this kind of situation.

“We knew we would have to take our chances. We created some chances in an incredible manner but we probably ran out of steam because we kept trying and trying and trying, and in the end, we got punished. But we don’t have to feel sad because our performance was good.

“Raheem Sterling has been incredible for us. He’s scored more last-minute goals for us than anyone in this league. But today it didn’t quite happen. But I give top marks to everyone for the way they handled this game.

“There’s one thing you know when you play Burnley, they’re well-organised and well-disciplined. I thought we handled every game against Burnley so far well.

“Today they got what they fought for. They got a goal in the last 10 minutes and never stopped believing. We have to make sure we finish games a little earlier next time.”
