City went back to the top of the Premier League table after Liverpool had briefly leapfrogged them by virtue of beating Watford 2-0 at Anfield in the lunchtime kick-off.
However, Guardiola was moved to say: "The pitch was so difficult because the grass was high, no water and everything was so slow.
"But we did well and won the game."
Rules stipulate that grass must not exceed 30mm in length for Premier League matches (1.18 inches) and is checked by officials before a game.
And Dyche responded: “No, we have had that before I think with Mikel Arteta.
"The standard they set is 30ml I think, you can ask the groundsman as I am not that interested.
"I think we are about 28ml so next game maybe we will grow it to 30ml so we are dead on! There is nothing in that!”
