Sunday's narrow triumph over The Hammers made it 13 Premier League wins in a row for Guardiola's men. He confessed that he's anxious about facing Manchester United.
It was just over a month ago that Claude Puel became Leicester City manager to a chorus of disdain from pundits who stated it was a poor appointment, and we were even treated to the usual he's blocking young English coaches rubbish.
EQUATION: Manchester United need just a point to secure top spot and will miss out on the Round of 16 only if they lose to CSKA Moscow by seven goals.
For the faithful Red Devils fans who remain convinced their team will rise to the occasion and hand City their first bitter pill of defeat to swallow on Sunday evening, never have you had a better time to put your money where your heart is and get over 2 to 1 on your stake for seeing your side win at home.
The Spain global was simply outstanding, making an astonishing 14 saves - the highest ever in the Premier League - which is a number you would normally expect from a keeper playing for a side in the relegation zone against a top of the table side, and definitely not what you'd imagine in a meeting between two of the Premier League's top sides.
"We started really well but we lost our patience".
"It was similar to the last few games, in the second half I thought we would score".
"We have to make ourselves a lot of points, sometimes it's good to win points and know how hard it will be just looking at what happened [in] the last few games". They just went back with 10 players in the box.
"It's a big victory", Guardiola told the BBC.
"Right now all of our attention is on the game against CSKA Moscow - we would be making a big mistake otherwise".
"I would like [if] Paul could play against us - I like to face the team with the best players possible. We created more with two", he said. Maybe to attack this kind of defence it is much better.
Nicolas Otamendi scrambled in the equalizer in the 57th and City piled on the pressure before De Bruyne sent over a perfectly weighted cross that Silva volleyed in on the stretch. I think we have a good team, good players.
"We spoke a lot about defending set-pieces but they are taller".
Guardiola expects an aerial bombardment from United after seeing his side concede another goal from a set-piece.
