Pep Guardiola 'so pleased' with Man City youth despite loss

Pep Guardiola was delighted with the performances of his young players despite Manchester City suffering their first defeat of the season.

 

City were beaten 2-1 by Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine although they were already assured of a place in the last 16 as top seeds after winning their opening five matches.

 

The City boss made seven changes from the team that beat West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday, including a full debut for 17-year-old Phil Foden, who became the youngest ever Englishman to start a Champions League game.

 

Manchester-born defender Tosin Adarabioyo also started while Spanish forward Brahim Diaz made a lively appearance as a 62nd-minute substitute.

 

"Congratulations to Shakhtar, it was a good game," Guardiola told BT Sport. "Their first goal was magnificent, and the second goal we didn't defend that well.

 

"We fought and I'm so pleased for Tosin, Phil and Brahim and how well they played against a good team like Shahktar Donetsk.

 

"The people saw it, we came here to win and we were there until the end. We couldn't do it but I'm happy for the performance."

 

It was the first defeat for City in 29 matches in a run stretching back 227 days and also brought an end to a 20-game club-record winning streak.

 

City fell behind to first-half goals from Bernard and Ismaily before substitute Sergio Aguero pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in injury time.

 

Holders Real Madrid are among the teams they could play in the last 16 along with Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Basel.

 

"In the Champions League on Monday we are going to talk about the draw," Guardiola added.

 

"It's how they arrive in the moment on that day. Maybe in February we will be a disaster. It won't be easy."

 

City now turn their attention to Sunday's crucial Manchester derby in which a victory against United would extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to 11 points.

 

The first team is set to remain in Ukraine on Wednesday night before flying back to Manchester on Thursday after a light training session in Kharkiv.

 

"Now we are going to rest, and we're going to come back tomorrow to prepare for the game," Guardiola added.
