Spanish coach Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, expressed his happiness with the team's 1-3 victory over Brentford in the English Premier League.

City scored three goals at Brentford's home ground, with Phil Foden, while the hosts' only goal was scored by Neal Maupay.

Guardiola said in post-match statements, "The game was really tough, in my experience, they do a great job with every corner and set piece."

The City manager continued, "We played a really good game, and their goalkeeper was fantastic in the first half. In the second half, we were much better."

He added, "Phil Foden has played a lot of matches; he is a player who can play in different positions and has the ability to play in spaces and in front of the goal because he likes to play in the box."

Guardiola further commented, "It's hard to find spaces against Brentford, so having a player who moves in these spaces is crucial."


He continued, "Foden likes to move in the 18-yard area, and he is having one of his best seasons since we started working together."

The hat-trick scored yesterday is Manchester City's 39th hat-trick in the English Premier League, surpassed only by Liverpool with 42 hat-tricks and Arsenal with 41 hat-tricks.

Currently, Manchester City is in second place in the English Premier League table with 49 points, and their next match will be against Everton at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester next Saturday.
