Pep Guardiola admits it's always difficult to remain focused for the Premier League after a mid-week Champions League fixture.

The manager is on a mission to keep his squad in high spirits, hoping for a City victory at Turf Moor. However the strain of mid-week football can often be a burden on the players.

“Our mental approach of the Champions League games are so so tough and most of the players are not used to playing every three days... We are working on that."

Yaya was so important at Crystal Palace for two goals and how he played... Of course Yaya can be important for us like all of the other players."

Pep knows that an action packed December is on the cards for City and how important it will be to not drop points against Burnley.

We'll be live on BT Sport on Saturday with a 12:30pm kick-off.
