Winning title against United not a motivation for Pep's City

Posted March 13, 2018

Guardiola said he will not rush Benjamin Mendy back after six months on the sidelines following knee surgery however keen he is to play. Their first matchup this season saw the Blues absolutely destroy Stoke and win 7-2 in what was Pep Guardiola's most lopsided victory in England.

"I know everyone wants to anticipate the situation and what will happen, everyone is thinking about when we will win the title".

Vincent Kompany says Manchester City's squad are well aware they could have a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to win the Premier League title against rivals Manchester United next month. Silva missed last week's Champions League game against Basel to be with his family and will fly back to Valencia while his teammates go to the United Arab Emirates. The Spain worldwide then revealed on Twitter that his newborn son was "fighting day by day with the help of a medical team". "We need to be relaxed, stay calm and think about Stoke City".

He has become a more regular scorer for Spain recently, playing further forward and contributing seven goals in his past nine appearances, and could potentially beat his best goalscoring season of 12 for City - having scored eight already this season.

"That [support from the board] was so important last season and I will never forget that".

"He's been at three incredible football clubs [Barcelona and Bayern Munich before joining City] so I've got big respect for him as a football manager".

"I know in my private life it's a very hard moment, but my son is fighting and I'm very happy because he's getting better and getting stronger".

"David just explained his story, it puts everything into perspective for us", said the defender.

"I don't like to play on Monday because the weekend everybody is involved and when the weekend is over, they are like the weekend is over, there are no more games, but we have to play".

Speaking ahead of the clash Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, said: "It's nearly done".

"To motivate my players is really easy, we are not champions yet, and when we are, we must carry on, to focus on the next goals which is the Champions League quarter-finals", said Guardiola.

It is now only one defeat in their last six games. "There is always room for improvement and that is what we will do".
