Pep Guardiola has shared his thoughts on Manchester City’s current injury crisis.
The Premier League leaders are suffering with serious defensive problems, as Aymeric Laporte, Fernandinho, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker are ruled out for Sunday’s trip to West Ham.
However, the Spaniard admitted, they need ‘to handle’ this situation and do their ‘best’, accoring to Irish Examiner.
“It could be better but I’ve said many times we have to handle these absences,” said Guardiola, whose side head into their penultimate fixture at the London Stadium with a three-point advantage over second-placed Liverpool.
“If there were many games and many months we’d be in big trouble, a big problem, but for one or two games the players will do their best, even those not playing in their position.
“The concentration and the focus (for players) sometimes, when you don’t play in your position, is higher. Like we saw against Wolves, they can do it.
“Things in football change so quickly. When you believe it is sorted or it is good and you are in control, it can give you a good punch in the face.
“At the same time when it looks like a disaster, a nightmare, one week can change everything. Before I had just Wolves, now it is just West Ham in my mind.” added Pep.
