"I'm feeling good," reflected Guardiola, "we created plenty of chances and always looked to get the ball forward.
"But we're a work in progress. There's still things to work on and it certainly wasn't a perfect performance."
Guardiola added: "We saw the best of Eto'o tonight. He played at the height of his powers - and the goals from Xavi and Henry were also good.
"The team made it easy for me. I'm only on the bench to fix errors where I see them on the field - and it was an easy night for me, thanks to the players."
