Thu 25 November 2021 | 9:53

City continued their very good run in recent weeks and last night managed to take revenge on the Parisians.

Manchester City

boss Pep Guardiola praised his players' performance after last night's victory over

Paris Saint-Germain

and promotion from the group stage.

City became the second English team to lead their group for five consecutive years in the current Champions League format with last night's home victory. They initially fell behind with a goal by

Kylian Mbappe

, but Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scored two City goals to give Guardiola and his side three points per game. After the game, Guardiola praised his team's performance.

“We played really well and the way we are performing is really good,"

Guardiola told a news conference. 

"People enjoy watching us and we are enjoying playing. Hopefully we can sustain this as long as possible.”

Asked about Paris Saint-Germain and their performance, Guardiola said:

"PSG – what a team, what players, what can I say?"

"We tried to keep these players far away from our goal. When they are close to your goal they can do anything.

"Except for five minutes after we conceded, when they [went for the] knockout on the counter-attack but couldn’t finish, we made a really top performance.

"We are happy to be in the next stage. Congratulations to everyone in the club. It’s many years of being there.

"Now we will focus on the Premier League and try to arrive in February in the best condition possible to go to the quarter-finals.”
