Guardiola hails Sane and Sterling.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been delighted by the consistency shown by Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane after the pair helped his side to a 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Sane created the chance for Sterling to break the deadlock in the 29th minute with a close range strike at the Etihad, and Sterling also provided an assist for Sergio Aguero who doubled the lead in the second half.

However, former Barca boss hailed the England and Germany internationals for their brilliant displays.

"It is not only goals that are important for a striker," Guardiola told the club's official website.

"The way he arrives in the box, he wants to score. He was also so clever with the assist.

"The pass to Sergio was outstanding. It was another good performance for him.

"Leroy has played really good last few games as well. He will be important for us.

"Our profession is so demanding, we have to do our best every single day. I want all of my players to be focused."
