EPL: Guardiola speaks on another midfielder leaving Manchester City


Kompany showed his quality with an outstanding performance in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool, which cut the leaders' advantage to just four points.

But the match prompted a theory from some Liverpool supporters that City had sought to slow the pace of the game by not cutting the grass to the usual level.

"I don't like to define myself as a player, but I know that I will contribute with hard work and humility", he said. We wait to see if Guardiola sees Sandler as a controlling midfielder in the future.

"They win the opportunity [to play] on the field but you have to take a look at all the big clubs in Europe how many young players are in the first team", Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City's Carabao Cup semifinal clash with Burton Albion.

"Always when you do this, karma or something punishes you". When this happens, you do the best for your opponents.

"I never speak with the groundsmen.how many issues do I have in my head to think about the pitch?" I trust the groundsman.

A statement from the EFL said: "The use of VAR comes as the EFL continues its commitment to support English football's contribution to the live trial now taking place, ahead of the technology being introduced into the Premier League from the start of the 2019/20 season".

The teenager started Sunday's 7-0 thrashing of Rotherham United in the FA Cup third round, scoring his first goal at the Etihad Stadium.

"No, make a league", he added when asked about the EFL Trophy.

Burton are putting the facilities into practice in preparation for the visit of Manchester City in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup on January 23. Everybody is happy to win but nobody is sad if they go out in that competition. We try to be a team and of course so far we have done incredible in terms of results.

Even highly-rated youngster Phil Foden is yet to be handed a start in a Premier League match.

The 19-year-old left Manchester to sign a six-and-a-half-year contract worth more than £21m with the Spanish giants over the weekend, with his presentation to the home support taking place on Monday.
