"UEFA is doing what it is doing", he said.

Manchester City's nervous finish in an otherwise comfortable win at Watford showed "you can never relax in the Premier League", according to manager Pep Guardiola.

"We just want to keep doing the same thing: forget about last season, know what we did last season was awesome breaking all the records".

"I thought the second half was a lot better".

"For five minutes they were better than us". It is that sort of month where it is game after game after game and a relentless schedule, so let's try and use this win to give us confidence to perform well against Liverpool.

"We had in mind that in the last minute an equaliser could have happened", he said. "But we'd lost our mojo a little bit and hopefully this will bring it back".

Terence Kongolo pulled a goal back for the visitors before half-time but for all their running and hopeful balls into the penalty area, Huddersfield lacked the sort of clinical finish that Wilson has delivered so often for Bournemouth this season, helping the Cherries pick up all three points.

When it comes to fast bowling, this is probably one of the best attacks we have in many years. And when we are out there batting, it's about batting as a unit.

Later in the press conference , Cleveland.com's Doug Lesmerises asked Meyer if he's certain he will not coach again. That's probably why Ohio State went out and found the only man with a higher winning percentage at OSU than Meyer .

Wilson then returned the favour, providing a pass that allowed the Scottish midfielder to drive home Bournemouth's second of a game that they did not have all their own way. "But in general the game was good".

Guardiola's men have been near flawless this term and have collected a total of 13 wins and two draws from their 15 games.

"We spoke now in the locker room, we have to learn from the last 25 minutes", he added.

"You can never relax in the Premier League, that's why it is nice", said Guardiola.

Gabriel Jesus missed a couple of chances and the Brazilian is in a bad run of form with his last Premier League goal coming in August, although his manager is not anxious.

"In this league, you have to score the third goal and we didn't do that, so that's why we suffered near the end".

The champions appeared to be cruising towards the victory, but were made to fight for all three points after Abdoulaye Doucoure set up a nervy conclusion when he bundled the ball home for Watford with five minutes remaining.
