Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insists he is not worried about City’s dip in form following their 1-1 draw with Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
The Blues have now gone on a five-match winless streak with the most recent draw against the Saints Southampton.
The 45-year-old manager says his side has to accept the recent dip in form and try to focus on recovering and regain their winning formula.
‘We are together,’ Guardiola said. ‘We spoke [in the dressing room] about the situation we have.
‘We are going to accept the situation: five games without winning because something happened. We want to go up and up.’
Guardiola believes that anything can happen in football and their recent form proves that, but he remains confident that he can help his side get back to winning ways.
‘I was a football player – I know this can happen. You can win ten times in a row and then you are not able to win five times. That is part of football. You have to accept that,’ he added.
‘I have to discover the reason why and I am going to find that. I have to help the team to achieve.’
Manchester City will now switch their attention to the EFL Cup when they take on Manchester United on Wednesday.
The match at Old Trafford kicks off at 21:00.
