Pep Guardiola In Team Selection Dilemma Ahead Of Manchester Derby

Loris Karius

Pep Guardiola is to sign a one-year extension to his Manchester City contract worth £20million, according to reports. Despite the fact that they face a tricky trip to Wembley to face Tottenham next Saturday evening, Man City will still win the Premier League title with six points out of their final six matches.

"We did everything, the quality was really good".

"Liverpool played like they always do at Anfield - the first 25 minutes of the second half we were good".

"There are 90 minutes more, we are going to try".

"But we lost it so for the fans it's hard, but maybe we're going to get more credit if we are able to win the Premier League "OK, how tough it was".

"I came here to try to do what we've done all season, but maybe it's not enough to win at Champions League level or the Premier League", said Guardiola after Saturday's game. Football is boxes. So when you miss the three chances we had in front of De Gea, so at the end the game is over.

Guardiola and City will be champions and they must put the disappointment of defeat in context by Tuesday when they confront their task against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. It is so complicated because we are going to play a top, top team.

"My dream is happening in the first half, when we didn't concede one shot on target". I'm sorry for our fans for our people, because what we saw in the first half is what we saw all season. Asked if those selections had been two errors, Guardiola said: "The first half [going two ahead] was a mistake?"

"Did we play bad?"

"He's so strong, he knows how we like him". Of course it is hard but we believe.

"Yes, it makes it even more hard", he said after City's first home League defeat for 16 months. "And we didn't close it [against United]". I remember my Munich team being 0-0 against Barcelona after 77 minutes - but we ended up losing 3-0.

"My motivation is to finish second", said the Portuguese, who confirmed that defenders Phil Jones and Daley Blind have returned to training, leaving goalkeeper Sergio Romero as the only player on the sidelines.

"In this room, I think there is nobody except the guy talking to you who believes we can go through", Guardiola told reporters.
