Manchester City FC manager, Pep Guardiola praised his squad’s commitment after bouncing back from a shaky start to their Premier League season with three successive wins.

Title Holders City suffered an opening day defeat at Tottenham Hotspur but responded with wins over Norwich City, Arsenal, and Leicester City to move up to fourth.

Guardiola, who has guided City to three league titles since taking over in 2016, said his squad had to build on their winning form and continue to push hard in training.

“The last three weeks were so good,’’ Guardiola said.
