Guardiola spoke about Man United's performance against his team. Guardiola said, "They are a team built for the transitions, and they can kill you in them. That is why you have to not lose that. If we attack not in a good position, they can make good transitions and score a second goal and make it more difficult."

Guardiola also said that his Manchester City team did not struggle when they were losing in the first half. Guardiola said, "We were not struggling; we were losing the game but not struggling. We had really good defensively and offensively. The first half was better than the second."

Guardiola then talked about Phil Foden, who scored a brace against Man United. Guardiola was so happy with his performance and considered him the best player in the Premier League. Guardiola said, "He loves to play football, he lives for football, training, playing games. It's his joy; his work ethic is unbelievable. What can I say? He's the best player right now in the Premier League; for the amount of things he does, he's unbelievable."
