Despite the team's plight, Guthrie is enjoying his time at the Reebok Stadium after a similar spell with Southampton last season.
"Every game I play in, I learn something new. I am here to pick up experience and just want to play, " he told Radio Manchester.
"Like any player you always want to be in the team. If that does not happen, you just grit your teeth and train hard.
"I love expressing myself and even though we lost to City it was one of our best performances of the season.
"We can take a lot of positives from that game and I am sure lady luck will shine on us soon."
