Man City starting to deliver for Guardiola

Pep Guardiola feels his Manchester City side have delivered much more of the brand of controlled football he demands in 2017.

City are unbeaten in four games since suffering a damaging 4-0 loss at Everton in January.

The sequence is much more reminiscent of the free-flowing attacking style that underpinned their 10-game winning start to the campaign than their disjointed form of the autumn.

Guardiola said: "When I see the first half against Swansea it is what I want. We monopolised the ball, we arrive six, seven, eight times to the byline.

"We did not create too many chances because it is so difficult with 10 players there and there was a big difference in the second half (performance) from the first, so we need more consistency.

"But since Tottenham at home, West Ham and Crystal Palace, I think we are more stable, we control more."
