Pep looks down on West Ham, playing better and deserves to go through.

Pep Guardiola admits West Ham deserved to beat Manchester City in every way and put an end to their five-year Carabao Cup unbeaten run.

Neither side scored in 90 minutes before it was settled on penalties, with West Ham’s Said Benrahma scoring the winner after Alphonse Areola. Save the shot from Phil Foden, who was the first receiver to shoot.

“We finished the game in a good way. We played really well. Create chances with deep defense teams. But with the penalties they are better, congratulations West Ham and we’ll be back next year.”

He also admitted he was happy to see Kevin De Bruyne back in action. and explains the behind-the-scenes full-back replacement at half-time

“Everyone deserves to play. Everyone is ready to play. Kevin returned from injury at the end of last season and he was a key player in the games against Liverpool, Chelsea and Club Brugge. As always, he is here to help us. Each day he’s slowly returning to his best form,” said Pep.

“We talked about 45 minutes each for Kyle Walker and 45 minutes for Joao Cancelo. It doesn’t matter. The result was 45 and 45, they fought hard already.”

“Cole Palmer played brilliantly. created a chance in the first half We played against a very rocky team and when you came to the penalty spot. Anything can happen.”
