Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has said that he won’t use tiredness as an excuse ahead of the midweek league game against West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium. The Mancunian giants were pushed to their limits during the League Cup final last weekend after they managed to only beat Chelsea in a penalty shoot-out.
During that game, the likes of Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho were brought off the field with injuries and it has now been confirmed that the duo will miss the Hammers game alongside John Stones, Gabriel Jesus and long-term absentee Eliaquim Mangala. Speaking in a press conference, Guardiola said that he won’t take excuses for tiredness from the existing players and he wants the commitment from the team as they seek to retain their league title.
