Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola was asked for his prediction ahead of Southampton’s visit to the Etihad Stadium, and he didn’t disappoint.
He joked about it. After all, City are facing the Saints side that shipped nine goals in their last visit to Manchester,
“We will score 18. 18-0, this will be the result,” he sarcastically said, as quoted by the MEN. “What a question! They [conceded] nine when they played 88 minutes ten against 11.
“Do you think this is a joke? We are going to score nine goals or 18? Be serious. We are just trying to win the game. It would be an incredible success for us. Win the game, that’s all.”
