"I didn't expect an easy game like that," he told Sky Sports.
"That's a big compliment to us," he added to NOS. "I expected more from City, to be honest.
"We were given a lot of space and we took full advantage of that. There were some great attacking plays and our playmaking was on a high level as well. We totally busted them.
"The red card was a shame for [Jerome] Boateng. It's a little bitter for us. But besides that, we enjoyed this and we're taking this good feeling onto the next match."

"People will compare us to Barcelona now but we are Bayern Munich," he added. "We have good players and rely on our own strength. We are building on last season and adding some new things from the coach.
"Guardiola thinks and breathes football and always wants to talk about it. Even at my age, I feel I can make more steps and learn from him.
"I have a good understanding with him. It doesn't matter if you're 16 or 29, the trust of the coach is very important."
