Man City boss Guardiola: I'd love striker signing

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola admits he would love to sign a striker who can score in 'every single game'.

"I will be honest. I'd like to have a player to score, every single game, four goals and run like these players can run. I would love it," he said.

"But I will not change any player we have right now, this season. All of them have shown in the bad moments. I've said many times I prize my captain, Fernandinho, how he helps on and off and the pitch to stick together, in the bad moments.

"The big teams, the big players show it in the bad moments. In the good moments everyone is easy to play. But we've had bad moments this season.

"We had a moment when we were 12th in the table, we were five points away from Tottenham. They were top of the league when we lost there. Now we are 17 points in front of them. That means how consistent we have been, how we have turned over the situation.

"That means a lot. Maybe it will not be enough to win the titles but what we have enjoyed in the last two months belongs to us."
