Pep Guardiola says Man City lack the 'mentality' to match Europe's elite

Pep Guardiola says Man City lack the 'mentality' to match Europe's elite

Guardiola confirmed that Bacary Sagna and Gabriel Jesus are still out with respective adductor and metatarsal injuries but City has an otherwise clean bill of health for the game at St Mary's Stadium.

The 31-year-old's 55th-minute header in a 3-0 victory at Southampton, in front of adoring City fans, sparked an emotional celebration from Kompany, who has started just 21 of City's last 102 games. They faced only one shot on target against Hull last weekend, and conceded a sloppy goal from it.

"They have very good midfielders, all the strikers are so fast, they play the wingers inside".

Pep Guardiola has admitted Manchester City "are far away" from challenging the likes of Real Madrid in the Champions League because they can not yet manage big-game situations.

"But now he is involved in the game". Their neighbours, however, have a game in hand and the two sides are still to play each other. They will be looking to take all three points against a team they took a 1-1 draw out of earlier this campaign.

"Hopefully that experience will help us for next season". "Not just in the defensive part where he has helped us a lot and has done all he can do but also in our process to create the chances, so no complaints about what he has done since the injury to Gabriel".

They have won their last two league games and will be confident that they can take something from Manchester City.

He said: "Sergio's attitude was always good, from the beginning".

Guardiola seemed to disregard the fact his predecessor Manuel Pellegrini led Man City to the semi-finals, and a narrow loss to Real Madrid, less than 12 months ago. Southampton has been sensational as of late, but we all should know better than to underestimate Manchester City.

"I'm really happy and I want to stay there".

"Of course we follow all the players who are playing on loan this season, and of course, Joe, we will follow Joe every weekend".

That is because UEFA rules do not allow six teams from one national association to compete in the Champions League at the same time. "When he misses chances, always you can improve, but we've no complaints".
