Guardiola will play golf as City await title

The debate has reopened on how Pep Guardiola sets up his defence at Manchester City

City travel to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur today but Guardiola revealed Aguero will not feature against Mauricio Pochettino's side, with doubts over when he will return.

Regarding how pressure is more intense when trying to seal the title, Guardiola said: "That will be good for our future, you have to handle that". If we lose it will be in the same way we tried to play against United and Liverpool.

"What I say to the players is, and they show you every day, in every game that it's not done because if it was done they wouldn't play the way they play".

If United - who denied Guardiola's team the title by beating them last weekend - win both games, City can still clinch it with a victory against Swansea next weekend.

Liverpool's bold approach has contrasted to most when faced with the might of City's attacking arsenal and Jurgen Klopp has been rewarded with three wins in four meetings with the runaway Premier League leaders this season.

"The exceptional thing has been 10 months winning, winning, winning and losing just one game", said Guardiola, whose side need two wins to guarantee themselves the title.

"Tottenham is a fantastic team, they have great pressure". Of course it can happen.

"Never before in the National Basketball Association had one team in the finals recovered from 3-1 down, and two years ago (Cleveland) Cavaliers beat Golden State Warriors 4-3". They won three games in a row, so in sports it can always happen. "It's in our hands, we don't depend on anyone else, and that's a good advantage", he said.

VAR will continue to be trialled by the FA during FA Cup and Carabao Cup games as it has been this season where there's been plenty of issues, especially when it comes to the crowd not knowing what's going on. "We can not forget he was injured for one month", Guardiola said.

"We will see. Football is unpredictable".

City missed their first opportunity to secure the crown last week as they surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to rivals Manchester United in their derby at the Etihad Stadium. "David played more because he was absent for a while, due his [ill] son's situation, that's why he had maybe more energy in the legs [recently]".
