Man City are in the right frame of mind: Guardiola

Man City are in the right frame of mind: Guardiola

"That is not good enough", he said.

" Two shots on target (against Newcastle) and we conceded". We had three or four one-on-ones with the 'keeper. "It's just now recover, prepare and try to win against Burnley, that is what you have to do, and after that the derby and make these steps".

The defender of Manchester City Aymeric Laporte expects to take action again in the coming two months.

City have the opportunity to reclaim second spot behind table-toppers Liverpool if they can beat Burnley at Turf Moor tomorrow ahead of Leicester's home game against Watford on Wednesday.

Since then, the manager has admitted that he's been impressed with Fernandinho's ability to adapt to the role.

Asked about the midfield, he added: "I prefer (Ilkay) Gundogan and Rodri in this position".

"Right now yes", said Guardiola. That is why he plays.

Either way, 49ers-Saints is a must-win for both teams, and San Francisco is already an underdog in the matchup. It was also the first time the Ravens trailed since the second quarter of their game at Seattle on October 20.


Summer signing Rodri and Ilkay Gundogan have been chosen over three-time Premier League victor Fernandinho in midfield by the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss.

"He is not ready for the derby, but after the derby, we will see", said the City boss.

Pep Guardiola is adamant the Manchester City players have not been affected by a poor run of just one victory in five games in all competitions. "That is the fact". We have to think about what we have to do to win the games and play quite similar to recent games, especially like Newcastle and, except for 20-25 minutes, against Chelsea. We played well with the ball, we were solid, we conceded few counter-attacks, but football is how many goals you score and how you don't concede.

The injury to Aymeric Laporte early in the season could be pointed to as the defining moment in the collapse of Manchester City's title challenge, but in reality, they would have had to be essentially ideal in order to keep pace with Liverpool, who have collected 40/42 possible points and are heading towards a 100+ point season, which would be the best ever season in Premier League history.
