Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was quick to praise his side after their 4-1 win over league rivals Tottenham on Saturday.

The win has put the Citizens 14 points clear at the top the Premier League table ahead of city rivals United.

The Spaniard was pleased with the way his side dealt with the pressing and quality of their opponents and were given yet another mesmerising display by talisman Kevin de Bruyne.

Speaking after the game, per the Express, he said: "It was solid, good, against one team demanding to be intense without the ball.

"They have good quality, but we played really good to beat one of the strongest teams in the Premier League. Without the ball we are a humble team.

"The performance of Kevin de Bruyne, you cannot imagine how good he plays with the ball, but he runs like a player in the Conference league - it is easier for the manager and the club.

"I can only say thank you to all my players – and to a fantastic talent like De Bruyne and how he runs and fights without the ball. He has the whole game in his head.

"Since August we are so happy and I admire the most the way we play without the ball - thank you to the club to provide me with these amazing players.

"We are on a good streak, but in three days we have another one."
