What Pep Guardiola told Manchestre City players after Carabao Cup win

Pep Guardiola spoke with Manchester City players ahead of the Carabao Cup second leg game with Manchester United. City celebrated a 3-1 victory over United in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg game. Bernardo Silva opened the score, Riyad Mahrez doubled the lead while Andreas Pereira scored an own goal. Marcus Rashford scored the only goal for Manchester United. Speaking about the game, Pep Guardiola said: "We are close to making the final but in three weeks anything can happen. Enjoy the night, celebrate but nobody is going to say we are going to be in the final - that would be a problem. "I spoke with the players that it is not over. Be calm and we will prepare. Hopefully the fans can be in the stadium and help us over 90 minutes. "I have the warnings after what happened in the second half. Anything can happen in one game and they have the quality to make good actions. They score two goals in the Premier League game so they are able to do it. We have to prepare well but it is in three weeks. "We have more games before and we have to focus on the Premier League right now. "It is not done. Last season they lost 2-0 to PSG and after they qualified so anything can happen in football and I know after what happened in the second half they are a dangerous team. Hopefully in front of our people they can support us like Man United supported their team and qualify again for the final." The second leg of the game will be played on January 29. source - Manchester Evening News
