Soccer – Guardiola: We needed to lose a game

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was quick to look at the positives after watching his team slump to a 2-1 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. It was the first time City had tasted defeat this season but Guardiola thinks it will do his players good in the long run. City face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday and are 23/20 with bet365 to win the derby clash and 8/1 to edge it 1-0. Guardiola said: "We needed to lose a game. It will be good for the club, for all of us and the media. "People say things when you win a lot and you can forget that now."
