Pep Guardiola Press Conference

Pep Guardiola spoke to the press ahead of Manchester City's FA Cup clash against Peterborough. Here are some key quotes...

On Marcelo Bielsa: "I am sorry for him. His legacy is there in Leeds’ city and the club and I am pretty sure with the players. Unfortunately as managers we are subject to results and lately they were not good. But in the four seasons, he was spectacular to watch and wish him all the best."

Did Everton deserve a penalty?: "I will review a lot of incidents. What I would say is if it is not offside it is a penalty." 

Team news: "Some knocks, but today everyone trained."
