Manchester City fans were left dazed and confused after Pep Guardiola claimed after their 3-0 defeat of Arsenal that his side played better in their derby defeat to Manchester United a week ago.
While there were some fans who agreed with Guardiola’s opinion, others were left astounded by the claim from the City boss, whose side were rarely in trouble against an Arsenal team who mustered just a single shot on target throughout the match.
Fans could not see the logic of Guardiola’s viewpoint, with some surprised that the manager did not lead his post-match remarks with a positive having been beaten by their local rivals in their previous Premier League game.
As a result, some took to Twitter to voice their confusion over their manager’s stance, with some criticising the Spaniard for thinking they were worse than when they fell at home to the Red Devils.
Below is a selection of City fans who presumably felt the team were much improved following their showing at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening:
Only Pep knows what he’s talking about
