Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was far from satisfied despite seeing his side cut Liverpool ’ s lead at the top of the Premier League to four points with a 3 - 0 win away to basement club Huddersfield on Sunday.
City were rarely in trouble after Danilo ’ s deflected shot gave them an 18 th - minute lead but they appeared to switch off for the remainder of the first half at the John Smith ’ s Stadium against a Huddersfield team who parted company with manager David Wagner on Monday .
But whatever Guardiola said to his players at the break appeared to have the desired effect , with two goals in a matter of minutes early in the second half from Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane putting the result beyond doubt .
“ The way we played we didn ’ t deserve more than three goals, ” Guardiola told the BBC . “ We will improve in the future .
“ We have to demand more from ourselves in every game and do our best , but sometimes it’ s difficult . They defended deep and man to man. ”
Reigning champions City have now scored 62 goals in 23 league games so far this season , eight more even than Liverpool.
“ What we have done so far has been incredible , in the league and the Carabao ( League) Cup , ” said Guardiola.
“ We have an incredible number of points (56 ) . But this game can teach us and show what we have to do to improve.
“ We ’ ve scored a lot of goals . So far , so good . One team has been better but we ’ re in January and there’ s many more games to play . You don ’ t win or lose the Premier League in January.
“ We have to focus on what we have to do . If Liverpool win , we have to win . And if Liverpool lose then we also have to win . ”
