Guardiola admits: ‘Most of my players are tired’

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is excited to have a whole week with his players ahead of Saturday’s massive clash with Chelsea.


They edged past Burnley 2-1 on Saturday and are just a point behind the league leaders, but he admits their Champions League campaign has taken its toll.

The Spaniard left David Silva on the bench at Turf Moor while Kevin De Bruyne was given only 12 minutes.

“Now we are going to play against the best team of this moment in the Premier League,” said Guardiola.

“In the last five or six weeks they have played amazing – not just clean sheets but the way they play.

“We have to try and discover his (Conte’s) secret and what we can do to beat him.

“We have now six days, seven days to prepare that game.

“Most of the players are tired and that’s why we are going to prepare our game as much as possible.”
