Guardiola: Players won't be distracted by Norwich atmosphere

Pep Guardiola says his players have what it takes to handle a potentially difficult Carrow Road atmosphere this weekend.

City travel to East Anglia keen to extend our unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 matches when we face Norwich in Saturday's 17:30 kick-off.

However, Dean Smith's resurgent side won't make life easy for City, picking up two wins and a draw in their last three matches as they battle for Premier League survival.

With this in mind, Guardiola and his players are braced for a tough test at Carrow Road, but the City boss is confident that our big game experience will help see us over the line.

"We are used to playing in incredible atmospheres in the Premier League," the City boss explained.

"Norwich has a fantastic atmosphere but so did Aston Villa, Leeds too. (Playing) away is always a fantastic atmosphere.

"(We just have to) focus on what we have to do on the pitch. Focus every player individually and as a team on what we have to do to beat them.

"That’s the best way to forget the atmosphere but these players are used to playing in the Champions League and on the biggest stages and in great atmospheres."
