Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he was happy with their performance in the Champions League final defeat to Chelsea.

Guardiola revealed he has watched back footage, and has pinpointed how Chelsea were able to assert their dominance.

"We played a great final. We lost but played a great final," Guardiola said. "We missed a little bit to be more precise in the last part of the game. We lost the second balls because the transitions are so good.

"They regain the ball and they regain again and after make a quick transition. They structure defensively so good, for the physicality they have, the movement they have, the quality in the short spaces.

"They controlled all departments which is why it was difficult in the final of the Champions League against an exceptional team. I had the feeling in the game and when I saw it, my impression is we were really, really good."
