Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has defended Jesus Navas in the wake of Sunday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
"After we scored the opening goal we forgot to play".
"I want to congratulate Jesus Navas who was excellent against one of the best players in the world in Alexis Sanchez", Guardiola said of Navas' performance. We didn't want the ball. I think if you are able to attract players, it's not just about salaries.
City will fall short in the race for the Premier League title this season, while they have again failed to progress far enough in the Champions League, leaving Guardiola to blame a lack of goals for their problems.
"And that's why maybe if they focused a little more about Europe and the national team. the talent is there, I don't have doubts about that. In some moments, we didn't do that". It should not be hard to improve the quality of the squad this summer, given the poor back-up options behind the first team, but there are fewer guarantees that the new-look outfit will have what it takes to control these big occasions.
The match summed up City's maiden season under ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Guardiola, as they started brightly, dropped off significantly and ultimately lost their way.
