Man City solidarity pleases Pep
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said it would be easy to feel overwhelmed by the packed fixture schedule but called on his players to embrace the “beautiful challenge” as they compete for four trophies.
City moved a step closer to a third Premier League title in four seasons on Wednesday after their 3-1 over Everton put them 10 points clear. Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva were on target for City.
“The schedule can get you depressed as it’s too many games,” Guardiola said. “The guys need rest but at the same time it is a beautiful challenge.”
Guardiola said he would need to call upon his whole squad to maintain the challenge on all fronts.
“What pleased me today was the solidarity even from the guys who didn’t play,” Guardiola said.
