Gael Clichy has revealed that Pep Guardiola was angry with aspects of Manchester City's performance in their 2-1 EFL Cup victory against Swansea City on Wednesday.

City's latest win means they have now won all nine of their matches so far this season.

Clichy opened the scoring and Aleix Garcia grabbed his first goal for the club before Gylfi Sigurdsson struck in injury time.

But City did surrender possession on a number of occasions and offered up plenty of chances, with Willy Caballero, who misplaced a number of passes, and John Stones, who overran the ball in his own area, the most obvious examples.

And Clichy says Guardiola made his displeasure known in the changing room afterwards.

"The boss wasn't really happy about this," he told reporters.

"It's one thing to play against a better side who create chances but it's not good enough when you give them [opportunities] through losing the ball in the middle of the park.

"We know what we did right and we know what we did wrong. The victory was the most important thing and of course we can improve."

And while Clichy himself was pleased with the general performance, he did admit that City were at times "not good enough".

"We were a bit sloppy but I think overall we controlled the game," he added.

"We didn't start well - the first half wasn't good enough and then we started to play a bit better in the second half.

"The victory is the most important thing. If you lose you are out of the competition. Now we can rest and look forward to Saturday." (
