Pep Guardiola: 'Manchester City must win titles to become a big club'

Pep Guardiola: 'Manchester City must win titles to become a big club'

Bet365 are showing Manchester City vs Bristol City in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on January 9, 2018 via their live streaming service.

"A win helps to win more, then we are there, going to go to London to play the final", said the City manager, who is eyeing his first Wembley final at the club.

The pair shared a superb 2-2 draw in the Premier League last week and punters will no doubt be expecting another goal-fest although the two-legged nature of the tie might be both sides are a little more cautious than their previous meeting.

Ilkay Gundogan says Manchester City are targeting winning four trophies this season, although Pep Guardiola has regularly cast doubt on his side's quadruple chances. It doesn't make us weaker in my opinion.

"If we believe we need something because we are in four competitions and anything can happen, then OK". Manchester City are 4-1-0 in their last five overall and 5-0 in their last five home games.

The blaze started around 2.30 am at the bar in Kalasipalyam, a busy and congested area in the heart of Bengaluru . Bengaluru Fire: Passers-by alerted the fire department when they noticed smoke and fire from the building.

With Burnley's mean streak, the worst scenario was potentially for City to pull one goal back and force a replay at Turf Moor that neither side wanted.

David Silva's unavailability due to personal reasons, coupled with City's busy festive schedule, has provided more opportunities in the City midfield for Gundogan, with the Germany worldwide keen to stake his claim for more regular first-team action.

"If we have less games then a player, two or three players, will sit on the bench unsatisfied with their situation". There comes a time when the level of what we can get to is just not appropriate for any given player, and they'll think as much as they've enjoyed it here there comes a time when reality bites. So if a player is playing more, he's going to be happier.

"That was my own situation over the last month". It is not easy to go back and forth to Spain and play the way we did.

"I'm so happy", said Guardiola.

"I said "Leave the referees please".

Bristol City have already seen off Stoke City, Crystal Palace and, of course, Manchester United so Pep Guardiola's men will not be taking this challenge lightly.

"He is an essential player for us if we want to win something".

The hosts will be huge favourites to secure victory on Tuesday night, as they remain unbeaten in the Premier League and are 15 points clear.
