Pep praise for “great” Fernandinho
We won all nine of our competitive games in January, most of them in a single month since the Football League was founded in 1888 by a team in the top four stages of English football.
It was a remarkable month as we moved from eighth to first place in the Premier League, qualified for the fifth round of the FA Cup and advanced to our fourth straight Carabao Cup final.
We scored 24 goals and only conceded two goals. We won six Premier League games, two FA Cup games and a Carabao Cup semi-final at Old Trafford.
And Guardiola believes the lockdown measures put in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 are making the performance even more remarkable.
“No trip, everyone at home in lockdown, we can’t express ourselves and go to restaurants – and to achieve what they have achieved is remarkable, more than any other time in our lives,” he said.
“I didn’t expect it. In the briefing, I said congratulations from the players, it’s remarkable what you’ve done – all of you. But now go ahead. Go home, rest, and now Burnley ‘”.
