Pep 'honoured' to have Sergio Aguero in his team

Pep 'honoured' to have Sergio Aguero in his team

The runaway Premier League leaders maintained their relentless charge in four competitions by reaching the FA Cup fourth round at Burnley's expense on Saturday.

The pair shared a superb 2-2 draw in the Premier League last week and punters will no doubt be expecting another goal-fest although the two-legged nature of the tie might be both sides are a little more cautious than their previous meeting.

The Citizens are at home in the League Cup semi-final first leg tomorrow as they host the Robins at the Etihad Stadium.

"In sport, the most important thing is what's next - visualize, focus on what's next".

"If we believe we need something because we are in four competitions and anything can happen, then OK".

"We've played some good sides this season and done well and earned the right to play a team like City".

LEVEL UP. And off to the next round!

David Silva's unavailability due to personal reasons, coupled with City's busy festive schedule, has provided more opportunities in the City midfield for Gundogan, with the Germany global keen to stake his claim for more regular first-team action. The north London club are 9/2 (5.50) to win this tournament and 10/3 (4.33) to get the better of Chelsea in the first leg of their semi-final at Stamford Bridge.

"If we have less games then a player, two or three players, will sit on the bench unsatisfied with their situation".

"We think about this every single day and every training session", the Ukrainian said.

It is likely that there will be a few more fringe players involved against Bristol City.

Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk are the only team to beat City this campaign, in a Champions League dead rubber last month. It is not easy to go back and forth to Spain and play the way we did.

"My priority is the next one - tomorrow", Guardiola said before the game and he was true to his word with Nicolas Otamendi, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho all starting, while Claudio Bravo and Oleksandr Zinchenko were given rare starts too.

"I've watched the highlights", Gundogan said.

"The feeling when that final whistle went against Man United was pretty insane, but it wasn't a huge shock that we beat them".

"We've got a lot of respect for them - they have an unbelievable team with an awesome manager - but it's a massive opportunity to make a special moment again".
