Guardiola explains Joao Cancelo's role in the team

Explaining Joao's Role

Pep Guardiola's side won 3-1 at Goodison Park after Phil Foden's initial goal was canceled by a Richarlison touchdown. However, two brilliant shots from Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva secured three points for Manchester City.

One of the interesting things was that João Canselo was again playing in a left-back position, which looked more inverted, while Portugal played closer to that of a left-center midfielder and in particular to a full-back.

After the game, Pep Guardiola was asked about the role that Canselo was asked to play, and he explained that it depends on a number of factors.

“More people will pass the ball. That's all, - he told Amazon Prime after winning. "Sometimes it's in a different position, sometimes our defenders attack wider, so it depends on the opponent."

When insisted that Canselo be a player with the great skill required for the role, he agreed.

"Of course; of course. Not all players can play inside. Alex [Zinchenko] can do it, Fabian Delph did it in previous seasons. Juan can do it. It depends on the skills."

Marez explains team chemistry

What was very noticeable about Manchester City's play was the way all the players were in mood during the match. Riyad Marez and Bernardo Silva teamed up with each other to create their chances and were clinically completed.

After the match, Riyad Mahrez spoke to the media and explained that he and his side know where each other is, and there is no need for oral communication, because understanding is already there from the mental aspect.

"We don't even need to shout or talk to each other - we know where we are", - he said.

The current Manchester City have opened a 10-point gap at the top of the Premier League table as they travel to meet Arsenal in the Emirates to extend their winning streak to 18 games.
