What did Guardiola have to say?

“We have a lot of money to buy a lot of incredible players,” Guardiola said at his post-match press conference when asked how his team won 19 in a row.

He added: “It’s true. We can’t do it without good players. The humanity of this group, the players are fantastic and have an amazing relationship. They play every game to think they’ll win this game.”

“Enjoy the night tonight and then think about West Ham. When people talk about the second leg, the second leg is in three weeks and now the next goal is West Ham. That’s all I care about.”

How much money did City spend?

Over the past 20 years, Manchester City has spent nearly £ 2 billion ($ 2.8 billion) as the club has become multi-year competitors at both national and European levels.

The club has spent over £ 500 million ($ 707 million) since taking over Guardiola in 2016, hiring players like Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and RIyad Mahrez.

However, the club’s biggest overhaul has taken place since the Spaniard’s arrival. In Manchester City, Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Nathan Ake and Benjamin Mendy have been involved in recent years.

What’s next for Manchester City?

Manchester City remain the Premier League leaders after taking a 10-point lead over runner-up Manchester United.

Next up is a clash with West Ham on Saturday before meeting the wolves on Tuesday.

However, on March 7th, Manchester City will face one of the most important games of the season as Manchester United is welcomed to Etihad.
