Man City boss Guardiola: I need to figure this out

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola knows that he needs to tweak his team in the coming days.

The Citizens were resoundingly beaten by Aston Villa in the Premier League on Wednesday.

While the scoreline was only 1-0 to Villa at Villa Park, City were inferior in every metric.

"The results are not good and that's why I have to sleep, look back at the games and figure it out," said Guardiola post-game.

"Rodri is an important player of course but when he is not there we have to find a way to win without him.

"Six points [off the top] and we would prefer to be top of the league but we made three draws and lose today.

"In these years we have found a way to win games but we struggled a bit and we have to find a way.

"It is my job to find a solution. The dynamic changes by winning games. When a team is better you have to recognise it."
