Pep Guardiola gives Manchester City team news in his press conference as Premier League campaign continues with upcoming Watford fixture.

Aymeric Laporte and John Stones are injured, while Eric Garcia and Taylor Harwood-Bellies can be options for Citizens boss.

We don’t have many options,” Guardiola said about his defence. “We have Rodri and two young players who we trust a lot.

“Eric (Garcia) has been training with us, Taylor (Harwood-Bellis) – we will count on them. It’s not a problem it’s a challenge, I don’t see it as a problem. We have to accept it and handle it. You have to be positive, if we do it and be happy and work hard.”

The team came back from Ukraine on Thursday, where they won 3-0 Champions League opener with Shakhtar and Guardiola said he will make decisions after Friday training.

“Yesterday we came back and we’ll see today how they feel ahead of the selection tomorrow.”

The Spanish coach also talked about their loss to Norwich City,

“Before every game, we can lose, we have to have that feeling. We lose one in the Premier League in eight months. Sometimes the opponent can be better or more precise. But I didn’t have doubts after one defeat what the reaction would be. They’ve shown it many times in many years.”

Manchester City against Watford match will be tomorrow at City of Manchester stadium.
