Guardiola irked by Man City’s ongoing penalty problems

The team has failed to score 25 of its 80 penalties in all competitions, excluding shootouts, since Guardiola took charge of City in 2016.

Guardiola says “we have to improve otherwise these are the small margins in this competition that could make the difference.”
