Brentford 1-3 Man City: What Guardiola said

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, speaking to BBC Sport: "We had a lot of chances. The goalkeeper was sensational. They are so dangerous from set-plays, they are an incredible team in that concept. They press really high. The spaces in the pockets in these types of games are really important."

On hat-trick scorer Phil Foden: "He's always had an eye for a goal. He's got 250 games already and he's had an impact with goals this season. He is incredible, his numbers are really good."

On not keeping a clean sheet: "We know that [Ivan] Toney is the link and they make runs in behind. Yes, we will try to improve."

On Erling Haaland's performance: "It's not easy for any striker to have touches in the box. The spaces are really difficult."

On their winning run: "I'm just trying to recover the people and prepare for Everton. I never think about the run, just about winning the next game."
