Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been advised that his squad needs big changes at the end of the season to get back to challenging for league titles.

City dropped points in a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The defeat leaves them on 57 points, 25 adrift of Liverpool with 10 games left in the season.

Former England striker Chris Sutton believes that there needs to be “significant surgery” for City.

“They just don’t have the same base at the back [as Liverpool ], while Ederson was so careless,” the pundit wrote in his damning assessment of the visitors’ performance in the Daily Mail .

“Despite their extensive spending, City’s defence requires significant surgery. That is now seven defeats in 28 games in what has been an abysmal title defence, and it is little wonder Pep Guardiola looked so annoyed in his post-match interviews.”
