Managers Reaction 

Man City manager Pep Guardiola: “No, we are not the best team in the world. The best team is Chelsea. They won the Champions League. The best team is River Plate because they won in South America. These opinions, who is the best, the best? The important thing is we won the game and in three days we’re going to Norwich to win the game. So this type of thing, you are the best, you are the best, I don’t care. I want us to be happy and try to play better every day and at the end (of the season) we will see.”

Brentford manager Thomas Frank said: “From a defensive perspective we were almost perfect. But the two goals – the penalty we should never give sway, don’t slide down in the penalty area, and the second goal was a bad mistake.”
