Man City boss Pep Guardiola: “We knew coming here the way they play, we suffered a lot in the first half. But in the end, we had control and could have scored more. An incredible result for us. They are so fast upfront. Today was so important to make our chances to be champions again. We defended well and sometimes [in] these types of games set pieces become so important. With Nathan Ake on the pitch, we are so strong. What a game Laporte played, he is doing an incredible season. We have five games to go, potentially six until the end of the season. I prefer to feel less pressure than I am feeling. It is a long season and this is the last effort.”
Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch: “The Dallas injury hurts us. We think it’s probably not good. He has such a big heart and he’s such a big part of the mentality of our team. That one we feel. We hope Coops isn’t that bad. He just felt something in his knee. We’ll learn from today and can feel like we’re moving forward and making progress.”
