City faced off with second division Bournemouth, and emerged narrow 2-1 winners.

"He's a different striker to what we have in terms of physicality. We see in training how good a finisher he is. Now he has to be calm and keep working," Guardiola said of Delap to reporters.

"We are delighted with his performance - he played really well."

On Steffen, Guardiola added: "Well the goal we conceded was almost unstoppable. We didn't defend the shot properly. After, he saved on a counter attack.

"He was calm. He was safe. He gave a good performance."
