Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola served up a bizarre post match press interview as his team battled to a hard fought win against Burnley.

City were reduced to ten men after Fernandinho was sent off in the 32nd minute, but goals from Gael Clichy and Sergio Aguero secured all three points.

Guardiola appeared to be delighted as he toasted the win at the final whistle, before he grumbled his way through a post match interview that left more questions than answers.

"It was an amazing second half," he said, in an interview loaded with brief answers before he added: "I am not a journalist. I don't have to give opinions."

He sarcastically agreed with the reporter when he suggested Sergio Aguero should not have been left out of his starting line-up and then ended the interview as quickly as possible.
