Pep: Our only focus now is Wycombe

Pep Guardiola says City are only focusing on Wycombe Wanderers with a seismic eight days of away fixtures to follow from next Saturday onwards.

City travel to Chelsea on Saturday, followed by a Champions League trip to Paris Saint-Germain the following Tuesday and then Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

It’s hard to imagine a sterner eight days for the Premier League champions, but Guardiola says it is only Wycombe in his thoughts right now.


“Now we are going to play the Carabao Cup,” he said.

“We are going to see how many people recover for the next days because we are in difficult conditions right now but we will go there to London, Paris and Liverpool to do good games absolutely.

“Football depends a lot on how well we do our process in the build-up and when that happens the strikers play better, our wingers play better and our attacking midfielders play better.

“Against Southampton we struggled a little bit for that. They know it exactly. Sometimes the opponent plays well and If you analyse why we didn't create chances against Southampton, it was for that reason.”
