  • Bernardo Silva insists Man City squad are 'ready' to win titles

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Sergio Aguero suffered a knock during his side's 2-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday. Make even one slip in that gruelling run and their whole season could unravel. After the visit of Cardiff, the League Cup winners head to Wembley on Saturday for an FA Cup semi-final showdown with top-flight strugglers Brighton and then next Tuesday they square up to Spurs in the first leg of their eagerly-awaited Champions League quarter-final.

"Three more points, knowing that we have a very busy schedule".

"This season, the team has been very focused after global breaks, we're very happy to come back fit, nearly the entire squad is available and we are ready for hopefully the next two months to try and win some titles".

"I want them to lose, and they are so good, and sometimes it's hard for them to lose." the Senegalese added.

"If you look at the history of this club, it has always fought in the most hard moments and has achieved special things when it seemed impossible".

"I think we can reach the top four even if we are not able to win eight matches in a row".

"After the global break, you usually miss a bit with your rhythm".


City's progress means they could play nine games in April but Guardiola does not want to overthink the situation.

However, Guardiola believes his side need to win all of their remaining games to be champions again.

'He said he felt something, but hopefully he's not injured, ' said Guardiola.

We don't have a choice.' Bernardo Silva gave City the lead at Fulham and Sergio Aguero added a second before he came off as a precaution, although Guardiola did not appear too concerned and was encouraged to see Fernandinho return for his first appearance in more than a month.

For manager Pep Guardiola, the lunchtime stroll at Craven Cottage, featuring the return of key players like Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho after injury, felt like the most flawless resumption with the pressure immediately restored on Liverpool.

"Playing every three or four days will be tough", Gundogan said.

City face Cardiff City at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday and Guardiola insisted his players were focused on winning all of their seven remaining league games as they aim to retain the Premier League title, saying they would "enjoy the momentum, keep going and dream to win". "I'm sure in the next game our pace will be a little bit better".
