Managers Reaction

Watford boss, Claudio Ranieri: “I’m satisfied because I’m thinking, we played three matches against big teams and we got three points. If someone said at the beginning ‘Claudio, you’ll have three points at the end of Man City’, I’m happy. I know City was difficult because they move the ball quickly, with a lot of skill.”

Man City boss, Pep Guardiola: “Another good performance and we continue the level we have done these last two months, three more points and now to Germany. Today one team dropped points, next week it can be us, it can be Liverpool. Now comes the toughest part of the season with many games. We’re going to try to continue at this level, in this rhythm.”
