Mauricio Pochettino

“Having Christian [Eriksen] fresh with the quality he has helped the team achieve the victory.

“In the second half we found different positions and the team started to be more relaxed and be more patient. We were very good. The second half with the same starting 11 in different positions we started to play.”

Pep Guardiola

“Next week we have Tottenham at home, they are a top, top side and it is important for us to be focused. You can listen, you can read whatever you want but I have the truth and I know the position of the team and a good result isn’t going to change my opinion on what it was. Second half was much, much better but the first half we were way off where we want to be.”
