Guardiola Apologises For City’s Indiscipline,  Won’t Blame Referee

Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola, has apologised for his team's disciplinary meltdown towards the end of Saturday's 3-1 Premier League home defeat to Chelsea.

City took the lead but conceded three breakaway goals before Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho got sent off in added time.

"It’s a pity it finished like this (full time incidents), I don’t like that. I apologise for what happened," Guardiola told reporters after the top-of-the-table clash.

Although City felt Chelsea's David Luiz should have been sent off by referee for barging into Aguero when the Argentine was clean through, the referee took no action.

Guardiola however refused to dwell on the incident, instead blaming the loss on his side's wastefulness,  including Kevin De Bryune missing an open goal.

 "We didn’t win because we missed a lot of chances, not because of the referee," Guardiola admitted.
