Man City boss Guardiola: Sane knows why he's not playing

Analysis10 great statistics that perfectly sum up this Premier League season

Ilkay Gundogan told Sky Deutschland that City had not been "brave enough" and made too many "simple mistakes" in a game where Son Heung-min scored the only goal after 78 minutes.

Since then? Full matches merely versus Cardiff, Schalke and Newport.

Why does Pep Guardiola not trust someone who, from the outside, appears a truly exceptional player?

Pep Guardiola stuck to his guns over Manchester City's approach in their 1-0 Champions League quarter-final loss to Tottenham.

Guardiola attracted criticism for what was seen as a conservative team selection against Spurs in midweek, leaving both Kevin de Bruyne and Leroy Sane on the bench until the final minute, while peripheral figures Fabian Delph and Riyad Mahrez started.

Guardiola, 48, said: "You have to have a special energy and I think at 71 - except Roy Hodgson - the others can not do it".

When asked about his tactics at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, he said: "It doesn't count if the decision was good or not after the game; nothing changes".

"We thought of more of a low game, with more passes and more control to attack in the right moment". We just have to take care of our games. "After the penalty, Sergio reacted incredibly well and was mentally strong and the team was stable". City can further add to the worry at Liverpool by doing their bit and getting three points at Selhurst Park. I like when they express what they believe.

The Reds are locked in a pulsating battle with Manchester City for the Premier League trophy and face arguably their toughest remaining domestic fixture on Sunday when Chelsea visit Anfield.

"For 20 months, we've been winning every three days; an incredible amount of games". Unfortunately we could not score a goal, but we have a second leg at home.
