Gael Clichy: "When you play for a team like City you always want the three points.
"The ideal game is to play attractive football, score goals and create chances but at the end of the day the most important thing is three points.
"On Monday night we did that, with the way we played as well. We can be happy with the result.
"It was a good performance defensively and offensively and hopefully we can carry on like this. It was a great game.
"Away from home it will be more difficult but it is a good way of starting the season.
"We are going to play like this (in approach) from today to the last game.
"Last season was last season - it has gone.
"There is nothing we can do about it but it is always nice to start the season they way we did, in front of the fans as well.
"It was a great performance from the strikers to the defenders and we cannot ask for more."
