Guardiola delighted with Man City Cup romp

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was delighted with their 3-0 win at Carabao Cup opponents Oxford United.

A much-changed lineup swept Oxford aside, winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and a first City goal for Phil Foden.

“I am so satisfied," he said afterwards. “The game showed me a lot of things. It was a really good performance."

“A little bit in front, for the last shoot, we missed a lot but the process was so good - we had a lot of the ball, as always.

“Congratulations for us to get to the next round. We are the Champions and we want to continue in the competition as long as possible.

“Yes, (I saw everything I wanted to see). If the players are here, it is because we trust them. I know how nice the guys are - I see it in every single training session and how they live in the locker room. I am so satisfied.

“Last season, we won the Carabao Cup but in the first game, it was 2-1 and then we won on penalties. All of the games were so tough. Today, we were so solid in all aspects."
