Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to BT Sport: “The game started really well for us with the two goals and the red card and after the Champions League to come here at 12:30 with the quality they have, they can keep the ball and transitions are fast, it was an incredible victory. We struggled a lot after half-time until Phil’s [Foden] goal so a lot of credit to Wolves.
“Jack [Grealish] played really good. He was strong and he a made good goal coming in. Hopefully he can make a good international performance and come back fit.
“Fingers crossed all the players come back fit but it is important for them ahead of the World Cup but hopefully they come back good, ready for the derby.”
Wolves boss Bruno Lage to BT Sport: “[It went wrong] not just in the first half, but the first minute. When a team like City, who played on Wednesday night, score in the first minute it is hard to take. In between the first two goals we were there, but they scored in a transition.
“The most important thing to say, even with the problems we had in the first half, the team had personality to play the game. We tried to come back in the second half to equalise and have more of the ball and we had that in the first 20-25 minutes and our plan was to score and put pressure on them but they scored, but that was our best moment in the game. we came with a good plan but it is hard when you have one less man. We understand that the team are growing up, we can see good signs.
“It is not about Nathan Collins. Sometimes it happens and the same situations, I saw one like that yesterday in the Aston Villa game against Southampton and nothing happened, today it was a red card. It is about continuing to play, Ruben Neves played very well. We did that for five minutes initially to just try and work out how to play, but we found the solution on the pitch.”
