How did Twitter react to Manchester City's preseason thrashing of Tottenham?

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hinted that he may be prepared to extend his stay at the club but only if he brings success.

The Spaniard watched his side coast to a 3-0 victory in the International Champions Cup in Nashville on their tour of the U.S. and was understandably buoyed by the result.

"But if the market gives us a chance we are going to try to sign (a defender)".

"Okay it's pre-season, but our performance - we didn't have a performance like that last season". We have a lot of midfield players. That's a decision they have to take with their managers [representatives], but we take care of them when they are here, just like we take care of every player, from Brahim Diaz to Vincent Kompany. Another Frenchman Eliaquim Mangala faces a similar scenario regarding transfer scene.

"When I was at Bayern, I played a Champions League game against Benfica and we saw it four or five times", said the Spaniard. I have an idea, and after I go to the training sessions and I have a look, I watch my players.

"Still I'm waiting for a bad performance". The ball is safe. Maybe 60 to 70 percent of the season is positive, but that's how football works I guess and it probably happens too much. "He has his own special quality". "The group are satisfied with him and his behaviour".

Guardiola is also desperate to off-load his unwanted stars, with Fabian Delph, Wilfried Bony and Kelechi Iheanacho expected to follow Samir Nasri and leave the Etihad.

While Guardiola is happy to ship Iheanacho away, Leicester City are eagerly awaiting his arrival.

"I think a lot of things can get overlooked and a lot of emphasis is put on the mistakes, rather than the good things".
