Man City Squad vs Palace

Twelve of City’s squad have played international football over the past fortnight and Guardiola concedes some of them are tired.

The fitness issues do concern him but the Spaniard, whose side face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday and play Borussia Monchengladbach next week, knows he has to find ways to cope.

He said: “As quickly as possible (we need them) involved again in our reality, but they need time

They are human beings.

“Today the schedule is so stressful for the players. I rest but the players don’t. It is so demanding – 11 months and after that two or three weeks off and then 11 months again, and you cannot lose or play badly.

“That is why you have to handle that sometimes. When you see they are down, take them up, but every player is different.”

Score three goals and become the goalkeeper. A simple game, usually played for fun rather than to produce any winner.
