Guardiola said: “Today we played for each other, ran for each other and passed the ball for each other. Now I'm watching the Ryder Cup and I'm seeing how they play for each other. That is nice when you play football too. It's just three points of course, but the way we played was so good.
“Sometimes we believe we need a proper striker to finish, but the important thing is the way we play. The most important thing is doing it as a team and as a unit. It's like last season. Sergio [Aguero] was injured all year and we won the Premier League.
“It's a good way to start this fascinating week that we have ahead of us."
