Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola spoke for just 90 seconds in his press conference following his side's 3-1 win over Bournemouth.

Two goals from Sergio Aguero and a Raheem Sterling effort were enough to secure the points for the Citizens, despite a wonderful Harry Wilson strike from a free-kick.

Guardiola was asked about a moment from the match in which it appeared that David Silva should have been awarded a penalty, only for VAR to overrule this decision.

The Spaniard looked frustrated and provided a short response. He later left the conference room when it appeared that no more questions were forthcoming.

Below is the full transcript of the press conference.

On the difficulty of the Bournemouth game

"Yep we knew it we felt it, nice three points and big compliment to the players.

"A few things to improve. It's good that that has happened while winning games, but we knew it, every time they set up so deep 5-4-1, long balls and they are so strong with King, Wilson and Billing and set pieces with good throw-ins all the time.

"In the boxes they are stronger than us. But, OK. The quality of our players made the difference and we won the game."

On Sergio Aguero taking his chances

"Yeah, as always. It's not the first time he scored goals, honestly."

On whether David Silva should have been given a penalty

"No, no, no, penalty, no, no. It was clear hands last game, I saw the last game. Penalty?

"No, please. The challenge this season will be amazing for us after winning two titles back to back the challenge will be great."

On whether he expected VAR problems

"Ask the VAR people, don't ask to me."
