Spaniard hails Saturday's 4-1 victory over Liverpool as a "perfect performance"

Pep Guardiola has hailed his side's 4-1 victory over Liverpool as one of the best displays in his time as Manchester City manager.

"From minute one to minute 93, it was a perfect performance," said Guardiola. "One of the best performances in this seven years."

Man City temporarily closed the gap on leaders Arsenal to five points following Guardiola's 100th Premier League home win, but the Gunners restored the eight-point gap after they beat Leeds United 4-1.

Guardiola picked out Jack Grealish for special praise after the midfielder registered a goal and assist in an outstanding attacking display, while the England international also produced a crucial block to stop Mohamed Salah from making it 2-0.

“All this season he has been playing really well,” said Guardiola. “Now it’s the Jack we thought. Aston Villa fans know this Jack.

“Nothing changed, it’s just a question of believing, ‘I am part of that, and I can be here.’

“You can be judged on the block to Salah, maybe it could be 2-0. Football is more than the stats. The way he gave us the right tempo to play and make the extra passes. I could not imagine with the big name he is and the price the club paid [a reported £100million], he has the humility to run like a teenager.

“We are so satisfied for his performance. Today was amazing, he was really good.”
