Pep Guardiola has insisted that he hasn’t set any targets for Manchester City as of late this season.
The Citizens were held to a disappointing 2-2 draw by visitor Tottenham as both teams emerged out of the battle with a point. Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero managed to get on the scoresheet but their efforts were cancelled out by Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura.
A drama ensued in the dying embers of the game as Gabriel Jesus’ goal was ruled out by VAR, giving rise to controversy. The stalemate means City are now two points behind league leaders Liverpool and Arsenal, who have won the opening two fixtures of their campaign.
“I am not thinking about how many points we need to be champions or how many games we have to win,” Guardiola insisted.
“I am a spectator, too. I like to sit at home and see what other teams do. I enjoy what the opponents and contenders we have do, especially Liverpool.”
“But from the first day when I came here what we were looking for is the way we played like we did today (Saturday).”
“I think we dignify the sport and the people who pay money to come and watch us. ”
Manchester City will focus on getting back to winning ways as they travel to Bournemouth next weekend.
