Man City proved we don't need new striker - Gundogan

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan insists they're showing a new striker isn't needed.

Gundogan was speaking after victory at Manchester United.

“It is always about what we make of the situations," he said.

"There were a lot of discussions at the start of the season that we were lacking a typical number nine. But I think we already showed last season that we are able to play without this typical striker.

"We have proven that again this season that we are able to be very flexible and play a few players up front.

"At the end, it is always about finding the spaces your opponent will give you and then being aggressive in front of goal to score. A mix of that gives you goals. If you have a striker or not, it doesn't matter."
