Hodgson proud of Palace players despite defeat to Manchester City

Hodgson proud of Palace players despite defeat to Manchester City

Guardiola's side is hoping to avoid back-to-back Premier League defeats after they lost 2-0 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last outing.

It did not matter, after first-half goals from Gabriel Jesus and the excellent David Silva, and Guardiola praised the Brazilian forward, who netted his 50th goal for the club since moving to the Etihad in January 2017 from Palmeiras for a deal worth a reported £27m.

"He [Jesus] will have a long career and with his mentality always he will have success".

"Gabriel came back from Brazil, Sergio was 10 days without rhythm in training, that's why I decided".

Gary Cahill, the Crystal Palace defender who won two Premier League titles with Chelsea, acknowledged Metropolis's second aim, scored by David Silva after an unbelievable wanting scooped pass by Raheem Succesful, used to be proof of their quality. "When we decide to do it we will have more midfield players on the pitch and we did it", he said.

Kevin de Bruyne should have been given a penalty in the second half but VAR did not tell Anthony Taylor to overturn his decision after Wilfried Zaha brought him down in the area. I felt like they played like this was a big game for them.

"When Sergio plays, he plays at a good level and, when Gabriel plays, he plays at a good level. When people talk about the Champions League being the target, we're still not ready. we can still improve".

"I don't know if I could have asked the players for any more than they've given us". We create a lot, don't concede, but can improve.

He added: "It was hard to get the composure that we were looking to get in order to mount attacks of our own but we kept going and I'm pleased about that and I'm proud of the team for doing that". It worked relatively well until the visitors made the breakthrough and in truth an isolated Ayew did very little to help his side's cause - a particular disappointment given City were employing a makeshift centre-back pairing of Rodri and Fernandinho.

"It's a great joy to watch [Gian Piero] Gasperini's team play, they're brave.they take quite a few risks".

Guardiola said Jesus was preferred to Sergio Aguero as the Brazilian was sharper after returning from the worldwide break, during which they drew 1-1 in friendlies with Senegal and Nigeria in Singapore.
