Guardiola: We showed who we are against Newcastle

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola seemed satisfied with his team's performance, despite the 3-3 draw with Newcastle United on Sunday evening, in the third round of the English Premier League.

City were trailing 1-3 until the last half hour of the match, when Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva scored two goals within 4 minutes.

With this tie, City is second in the standings, with 7 points, two points behind leaders Arsenal (9 points).

"It was a good football match, we started really well, we lost some duels and they could run. Once the match was open, they were better for 20 minutes," Guardiola told the BBC.

He added: "We showed who we are. Alain Saint-Maximin is really dangerous. We have to take more time in the last third."

And about the red card that was directed to Newcastle captain Kieran Trippier before it was withdrawn after using video technology, Guardiola said: "I did not see it. The referee and the mouse said it was not the case, I saw it in front of me, but then I did not see it."

In a second statement to "Sky Sports", Guardiola said: "It was not possible to win today, Newcastle has become one of the strongest competitors for sure."

And he added: "Leeds beat Chelsea today. The Premier League is very difficult for everyone. It shows how great what we have done for five years and how difficult it is. It is enough to see the team fight to the end."
