Pep Guardiola defended his decision to name only six substitutes for Manchester City's 1-1 Premier League draw at Burnley, claiming that he did not have enough players to fill his bench despite boasting the Premier League's most expensive squad.
And there's no sign of that hectic pressure easing off. City's next four games are each in the four different competitions, with favourable draws in the FA Cup and the Champions League. We needed to score the second, third and fourth when we had the chance.
That gap has been reduced from 15 points thanks to Burnley's late equaliser.
The City captain went on to tell Sky Sports: "He's been incredible for us".
Chile global Alexis Sanchez, lured away from Arsenal during the January transfer window, scored Manchester United's second of the game to open his account for his new club and also made three key passes for his team in their 2-0 win over Huddersfield.Читайте также: Netherlands Confirm Former Everton Boss As New Manager
This weekend Arsenal face a pivotal trip to Wembley to take on Spurs and defeat would leave them with a mountain to climb to finish above their north London rivals this season. "We controlled the game, but when we arrived in the last minutes at 1-0, there is danger", said Guardiola.
However, two of the six subs named by Guardiola were youngsters, 18-year-old Brahim Diaz who came on for Raheem Sterling, and Tosin Adarabioyo, 20. No, it is football. Today he missed one chance. I give top marks to everyone for the way we played this game and handled a really tough away game.
"I think it's a joke if you are a youth team manager", said Neville.
City stretched their lead at the top too by another point before Manchester United beat Huddersfield to narrow the deficiency to 13 points. I like Sanchez as a player but I don't think any player is worth £500,000-plus a week. I could call one of the second team but they played a game yesterday.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
