“We started well with Arsenal and Everton, but now comes a really, really big test – a big bull,” said Guardiola.

“Chelsea is an exceptional team with seven days to prepare that game. We will try. We have to prepare well. This is a real final for us this weekend. If we are able to take these points, we are going to take a huge step forward.”

“When I was in Munich or Barcelona, I always read or listened to old managers like Sir Alex Ferguson and Rafa Benitez. The managers always complained about their schedules and nothing happened,” later added the Man City boss.

“That’s why when I arrived here I said I understood the situation. If we would play just one competition our schedule would be easier and better. When we play four, we have to adapt.

“The Premier League say we have to play there on that day – we take the bus or the plane in the right time in the right moment and play that game.”
