Pep Guardiola believes the season has now entered a different phase following the conclusion of the Champions League group stages. He said in his press conference this morning. Pep also spoke about his team’s prospects for the title, injury updates and much more.

Let’s dive in-

“Today he was training. The last two or three days he could not train (Aguero),” Guardiola revealed.“Today he trained, and we will decide tomorrow.”

“Eric is still not fit, Oleks neither. The rest are OK,”

“I learned when I was in Germany how big, important and historical a team they are. I respect the beauty of their football,” Guardiola asserted.

“I saw highlights, not full games (and) to go through from the group with Shahktar and Inter - made two incredible games against Shakhtar.

“All I can say is I want to arrive in the best possible condition when we play them. We will try and arrive in the best condition and best mood as possible. We want to compete as best as possible and go through.”

“It’s sad news. On behalf of all at Manchester City, our deep condolences to his family,” Guardiola declared

“He was incredible lovely person when I met him at UEFA meetings or when we play Lyon, or when I met him as a player and manager. It’s sad news for all world football. All the best for his family.”

“Yes, I completely agree,”

“In the Premier League so far, the European teams play different conditions to everyone else whereas now everyone plays the same amount of games in the Premier League. We are lucky to play in the Champions League of course.”

With another match tomorrow, we might see a rotated squad. Hope Pep is sure of it, City can not afford more lost points.
