Pep Guardiola pleased they beat Premier League champions Liverpool.

Man City beat new Premier League champions Liverpool 4-0 on Thursday.

Pep Guardiola expressed his delight after his Manchester City side beat the new Premier League champions on Thursday evening.

The Citizens ran riot over Jurgen Klopp’s Reds at the Etihad, goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden and an Oxlade-Chamberlain own-goal wrapped up a 4-0 win over the Merseyside club.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Guardiola said it's important they sealed the win.

The Spaniard said: "We beat the champions, an extraordinary team. We are brave to play, they are brave to play.

"My team I like every single game. We tried to play football, take risks. The best team I have ever faced in my life at high pressing.

"We had the courage to play in the small spaces.

"It is important. I saw the guard of honour, how they work inside, how focused they were. They didn't even say thank you because they were focused.

"They drank a lot of beers this week but they arrived here with no beers in their blood which is why I give us a lot of credit."
