Coach Guardiola comments on the big win today:
“What matters is that we are champions, that is what really matters. I have never spoke with the players about records. We are going to try and play how we did today against Basel and Stoke, that is what I want to see from my team.
At the end of the season we will see. Records are a consequence of what we have done. If you think about records you forget what you have to do. What you have to do is understand what you need to do to beat opponents.
We created enough to win the game, score more goals. Our high pressing was outstanding so we are so happy because it’s another step forward to be champions. We have 76 points.
We had to be careful against the counter-attacks, Hazard, Willian and Pedro are all quick players but we controlled it and we were quick with the ball, nobody was making extra passes or extra touches. It’s not easy when they defend with nine players in their box.”
