While City already qualified for the Champions League knockout stages, Guardiola insists that they should become lazy. The goal from Raheem Sterling helped the team maintained their 100 per cent record and secure the number one spot.
The team had also secured a club-record 17th successive victory but this is not enough for Guardiola since Feyenoord are at the bottom of Group F and without a single point.
Yaya Toure speaks regarding Pep Guardiola and how he will not allow City to be complacent.
“It’s human nature that sometimes you are a little bit lazy and think you’re super or arrogance can go in your head, especially when you are young,” Toure told reporters.
“You look beautiful and think you’re going to be the best. You see Feyenoord, they came and were difficult.
“The manager at the end was quite angry with the team. We can do better than that. We played lazily. You have to respect the opponent and the way to do that is to score goals.”
“The way Feyenoord set up we had to take our time — be patient and recycle the ball,” he added. “When you don’t score it’s quite difficult. We’ve been lucky not to concede in the first half. After that, we continued in the second half. We found the difference.
“Sometimes, when the manager makes changes, then maybe in your head we’re not so focused and we don’t concentrate. We miss easy passes and we miss easy chances.
“The manager said so in the dressing room. After half-time, you saw everyone pressed high and tried to make the difference.”
“My memories are that we have to stay stronger and take any chance possible,” Toure said of the comparisons to that season.
“Every team are going to start to defend and if we score early then they are going to have to come up.
“Sometimes it’s going to be tough, we’re going to draw like Wolves [in the EFL Cup], but we have to keep going. The momentum is brilliant at the moment.”
