Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he is struggling to understand why his side have lost nine Premier League games this season.
City lost 1-0 at Southampton on Sunday – a third straight away league defeat.
It is the first time in his career that Guardiola has overseen such a run, while nine losses is the most the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has ever had in a single campaign.
“We played more than good but it is not enough to win the games,” he said.
“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.
“It’s difficult even for me to find a reason why but you have to insist and talk about the game, the way they play and try to do more, concede as few as possible and score up front.”
