'Man City not yet a finished product'

All five were scored by either midfielders or defenders, which only goes to show the vast amount of depth at Guardiola's disposal.

"Finish strongly now and we give ourselves something to look forward to next season because you want to be in four competitions", Kompany said. "We had chances to score in many moments of the game".

"But Vincent Kompany was free in our box and scored their second, and after that we simply lost control and Manchester City scored more and more". And when you play Manchester City you accept that you might lose some of the time because of the brilliant talent.

By the end of the match Kompany's centre-back partner Nicolás Otamendi had joined him on the scoresheet as City shared the goals around, something they have not been doing enough this season for Guardiola's liking. So we are better than all the teams in the Premier League, home and away.

"Tottenham is the only team I can think of who created more chances than us", Guardiola told the club's website.

It was the kind of vibrant play City produced at the start of the season when they topped the table and should Arsenal defeat Manchester United tomorrow they will be hot favourites to seal another season of Champions League football.

"It's just that somewhere it's in there for us to create more chances, it's in there for us to concede less goals".

The late return to fitness of club skipper and defender Vincent Kompany has certainly provided Guardiola with a boost, although the Belgian global admits City have only themselves to blame for not stepping up on the big occasion. In the statistics, we are the team in the Premier League with the most clear-cut chances, but are seventh in the teams scoring the most goals. Nobody can beat us. Obviously it was important to score the goal quickly, so we had a bit more freedom. In basketball you see Michael Jordan, last minute ... puts it in the net.

"Our problem is finishing these chances- this is the most hard thing in football". That's why we're in the situation that we are'.

Guardiola's team are effectively in a three-way fight with Liverpool and Manchester United for the final two Champions League places. "That would be fantastic".

The battle to avoid Premier League relegation took a significant twist on Saturday as Swansea City capitalised on Hull's defeat to Sunderland with a victory against Everton allowing them to leapfrog the Yorkshire side into 17th place with two games left.

"We deserved to get punished like we did", Allardyce said.
