Pep speaks up on the loss

This season Pep’s City has lost 9 matches in EPL itself, it is the most number of losses that a team under Pep has undergone. The boss has a say on it, “We played more than good but it is not enough to win the games. We cannot say we are not a team who score goals this season. We are leading in goals. We create a lot of chances. We are a team who concede less – no team conceded as few chances as us but we lost a lot of games.” 

The Spanish manager added, “We cannot say we are not a team who score goals this season. We are leading in goals. We create a lot of chances. We are a team who concede less – no team conceded as few chances as us but we lost a lot of games.”

Though City won 2 back to back seasons (2017-18, 2018-19) under Pep. But this season they have lost 9 EPL matches so far, and are at 2nd position in the table with 66 points.
