Pep Guardiola has acknowledged that the Premier League is a tough competition after Manchester City scraped a 2-1 win away at Huddersfield Town on Sunday. "Sometimes it happens", Guardiola told BT Sport after the game.
City dominated the first half and looked particularly threatening when David Silva got himself on the ball, the Spain worldwide crafting numerous chances.
On Sunday he was at the heart of City's best play, winning the penalty for Sergio Aguero's equaliser before bundling home the victor in the 84th minute.
City were level again shortly after the restart, though, as Sergio Aguero converted a penalty and Leroy Sane almost added another shortly afterwards, rattling the crossbar with a fierce free-kick.
Pep Guardiola took a swipe at Arsene Wenger after Raheem Sterling won a penalty and scored the victor for Manchester City in their 2-1 victory at Huddersfield Town.
37 - Manchester City have won 37 points from their 13 matches this season - the best-ever points total at this stage of a @premierleague campaign.
Sterling's victor won Man City the three points and move eight points clear of their nearest rivals, Manchester United. It is impossible to win every game easily, this league is so tough. We had chances and we were able to win and we are top of the group.
