SUNDERLAND, – Sunderland coach Gus Poyet better assess his team start with the Premier League match against Manchester City at the Stadium of Light, on Wednesday (03/12/2014). According Poyet, his fortune and his team plan fell apart because Sergio “Kun” Aguero.
Sunderland was ahead through Connor Wickham (19), but eventually lost 1-4. City goals scored by Aguero (21, 71), Stevan Jovetic (39), and Pablo Zabaleta (55).
“We started the game very well. The idea is not only to perform and survive, but playing and creating a number of chances to score some goals and complicate them,” Poyet said.
“We did it. We went ahead and then there are quality appearance of someone who was at the level of good performance as Aguero. He created something from nothing, scored remarkable, and the game was changed.”
“Since (the first goal Aguero), they were better than us in general. You have to say it. They were better technique, more powerful, better control of the ball, and even when to survive, they are better because they are more powerful. It tough game. “
“I do not like to look for a reason. However, I have to say was difficult to maintain the level of play, concentration, and strength, as against Chelsea on Saturday. It is very difficult for children, especially mentally.”
“You have to accept that when you fight Aguero, Samir Nasri and Yaya Toure, you know how good they can play. You have to be at the best level and unfortunately we were not at our best level today,” said Poyet.
