Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: “I am not concerned about the Premier League table.”

Guardiola was more willing to speak about his team's showing.

Pep Guardiola was concerned about how his Manchester City side performed against Aston Villa on Saturday rather than their current position in the Premier League standings.

The champions thrashed Villa 3-0 at the Etihad, thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling, David Silva and IIkay Gundogan in the second-half.

The win means City have closed the gap on league leaders Liverpool to three points, and following the game, Guardiola spoke about his team's showing before and after the break against Villa.

"Six days ago we were eight points [behind], now we are three. But they have to play against Tottenham," he said as BBC Sport quoted.

"I am not concerned about the table. I am concerned about the way we played.

"If we play the level we played in the second half we can be there until the end of the season, I am sure of that.

"If we play the way we did in the first half, we will be in the relegation positions, far away from the leaders of the table. That is my view."

"The first half we played football but not in the way we should play."
