Pep Guardiola says Man City squad can ‘compete’ against Chelsea despite coronavirus absences

Pep Guardiola is confident his side will be able to put up a strong fight

City are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games and had been hauling themselves back into the title race after a slow start to the campaign. But with the Everton postponement meaning City now have two games to make up on most of their rivals, some heavy fixture congestion lies ahead.

That may be a concern for Guardiola but he does not want to make an issue of it yet.

“Since the beginning (of the season) we spoke about this, so no more comments,” he said.

“We have nine games in 27 days and after maybe eight or nine in the second one (February), so don’t think too much. We’ll play every game with the players we have and compete as good as possible and do as best as we can. Now we don’t think about what is not good for the players.

“They love to do this, we are going to accept it.”
