Manchester City is waiting for a difficult schedule until the end, while they are still in the fight for three trophies. Of course, the most important trophy for them is the Champions League, but we have no doubt that Pep Guardiola's team will be ready for what awaits them.
Their next challenge will be West Ham, and the match will be played on Wednesday. "I'm tired, but not tired in my legs like the players," said Guardiola, as quoted by eurosport.com
"There is one more month and a week for sure - [and] we fight for two weeks more.
We play this way for six or seven years, we are used to it. It's not the only time we've played six or seven times in one month. It's the best way to live."
Pep Guardiola on tired players
Pep Guardiola is aware that the individuals are probably tired, but now it is crucial that they show their attitude and give their maximum until the very end.
"Everything is here and the mental strength is there," added Guardiola.
"If a player is tired, then someone else plays. We are not tired. If you have positive thoughts you are not tired. Now is an opportunity, with just six games left.
We have to recover and go for it.
If one player is tired then hands up - and if not hands up then you're ready to play for your mates." West Ham will certainly not be an easy challenge, especially when we know that they still have a fight for survival.
Guardiola did not want to underestimate David Moyes' team. "Maybe they haven't done as well as they expected because last year under David Moyes they were exceptional but the quality is there," Guardiola said.
"Set pieces they are maybe one of the best, scored three against Crystal Palace, [Michail] Antonio attacks the channels.
The weapons are there. The team is there, I don't have any doubts. In one game, anything can happen so we have to be ready."
