Leroy Sane inspired league leaders Manchester City to their eighth successive Premier League win with victory at West Brom, but manager Pep Guardiola warned his side must be more clinical in front of goal.
Match statistics showed that City had 78% of the possession and created 15 chances in total, but were made to hang on at the end after Albion substitute Matt Phillips scored in stoppage time.
“We create I don’t know how many and just scored three,” said the Spanish boss, with David Silva having missed twice from close range while Kevin de Bruyne hit the side-netting from six yards out.
The former Barcelona manager said “In those terms, we have to improve. We need to be clinical if we want to win titles but football is unpredictable.”
