Guardiola: Man City are not low on confidence

"Burnley are an incredible team going for the second balls and not just one player, two players going to defend the strategy or the way they attack". If we can not do it in summer, we can not do in January.

The Citizens have won the last three meetings against the Clarets, scoring 11 goals and conceding zero. But that is not possible. He said: 'They (his players) have to believe we will win tomorrow. We chose to adapt Fernandinho in this position and that's all.

"We will then decide what we have to do or what is best for the club for the next season". "We need to adapt to their style and play our way".

"Vincent made a decision to go to Belgium". No [we don't miss him], the group is extraordinary. What they do they do perfectly. "But he made a decision to go to Belgium and we have other incredible players to try to do the job they have to do".

Guardiola has previously admitted that the club could not afford to sign former Foxes defender Maguire last summer.

Pep Guardiola didn't call him, but told Manchester City's board to prepare an offer for the midfielder. Despite the deficit and the centre-back Aymeric Laporte being in a race to recover from a serious knee injury, Guardiola will not strengthen in the winter transfer window. There is also uncertainty about the future of 34-year-old Fernandinho, who is out of contract at the end of the campaign.

Brendan Rodgers says he has no interest in joining Arsenal from Leicester
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Wednesday's Merseyside derby could "solve a lot of problems" for Everton boss Marco Silva . It's tough for all the clubs who go there but it's a special game for the city and our fans as well.

"There will be a need to regenerate".

Asked what defensive qualities in particular Fernandinho has, Guardiola said: "Have you watched the games?" "Fernandinho doesn't know [about his future] but it's normal".

"We have 26 shots against Newcastle and they scored two goals", Guardiola said.

"We have to play quite similar to Saturday at Newcastle".

"Since last season, when Brendan Rodgers took over the team, immediately they changed the way they play and they [got] the results". Three players is not rebuilding a team. "That is for the players who have finished their contracts and the players who have them. We have to be more solid and score the chances we have".
