Man City have difficult opponents to play in January – Guardiola

Pep Guardiola confirms change of Man City’s penalty taker

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has admitted that his team cannot afford to lose any more ground to Premier League leaders Arsenal.

The Gunners are eight points ahead of the champions.

City travel to Leeds on Wednesday night, having been pushed out of second place by Newcastle. Guardiola claimed that City’s January schedule is “terrible,” with league games against Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Wolves.

City also take on Chelsea in the FA Cup and Southampton in the EFL Cup, with Guardiola’s side facing six fixtures in 18 days. Against that backdrop, Guardiola admitted there is no margin for error in City’s pursuit of Mikel Arteta’s table-topping Gunners, who have shown no signs of folding.

“We have Leeds and then it’s non-stop. Our schedule in January is terrible in terms of the amount of games and the quality of the opponents. So, we have to restart. This is what we did against Liverpool [in the EFL Cup] and hopefully we can continue.”
