Ilkay Gundogan: ‘Manchester City will bounce back from Liverpool defeat’
Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has suggested that he and his teammates will have no concerns about the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
City had previously put together a 22-match unbeaten run in the Premier League this season, before three goals in eight minutes contributed to the setback at Anfield.
However, Gundogan – who netted City’s third goal – has insisted that Pep Guardiola’s side will learn from having conceded a number of goals in a short period of time.
The 27-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: “It is in our own hands. There is a gap, quite a comfortable gap still, but there are still a lot of games to play.
“We need to learn now, especially from those 10 minutes when we were not fully there. I am quite sure that we will and then we are going to bounce back and find again, 100 per cent, our way. I am sure that it is then nearly impossible to stop us.”
City are next in action when they host Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium on January 20.
