Man City defender Laporte delighted with victory at Brentford: But don't relax

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte was delighted with victory at Brentford last night.

Laporte says City's win at Brentford was the perfect end to 2021, but has urged his team-mates to stay focused after opening up an eight point lead at the top of the Premier League.

It means Pep Guardiola's men head into the new year in great form as they bid to defend the title won last May and whilst Laporte feels City can be satisfied with the efforts over the last 12 months, he says they must maintain it in 2022.

“Yes, [this is the perfect way to end 2021]," he said after the win at Brentford.

“We're very happy with our position in the Premier League. We have to keep working, staying focused on what we have to do to win the Premier League.

“It is what we will do and we're very happy with everything in 2021.

“We are very happy to be first at the moment. We want to stay focused to win every single game."
