Pep Guardiola wary of 'incredible' Wolves

Pep Guardiola wary of 'incredible' Wolves

It is something Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the luxury of this week, with Manchester United returning from four days in Dubai on Thursday evening.

City face a potential headache to squeeze in all their fixtures with so few matchdays available, particularly when the Champions League resumes.

While appreciating Solskjaer and his efforts with Manchester United, Pep Guardiola said, "He won all the games".

'Hopefully not because that means (we) will continue in the FA Cup or Champions League'.

They took a significant step towards winning one of those trophies on Wednesday, thrashing third tier Burton Albion 9-0 in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final.


Guardiola hopes to have the Argentine back for the game against Wolves on Monday, with Vincent Kompany keen to prove his fitness too. "He's a little bit better, yesterday was his first training session". I hope they will be ready'. Vincent is recovering after the game against Liverpool. We are there to help, ' Guardiola said.

"We cannot substitute the mother and when the family can't be there, it's hard", said Guardiola.

"But we don't know the private lives and the private lives can affect a lot their performance, shorter to medium time". "But it is what it is and he has to handle that situation".

"If you have no injuries and you are satisfied, like in our case, with your players and your squad you have, we decided, going well or going bad, to go with the players we had at the start of the season".

Ederson, Danilo and Fernandinho are all Brazilian, while Jesus shares a language with Portugal global Bernardo Silva. "I saw the schedule, and the Everton game will be fixed for another week, so we don't have many (spaces in the schedule for a warm-weather break), so we'll see", Guardiola said. "I think it won't be a problem for the next months".
