Pep Guardiola's preview

“We have the two young players. We have many injuries. The rest of the squad is here. We are going to put out the best squad in the circumstances.

“Of course, we have already qualified and the Premier League is more important right now than the Champions League. We are going to make some changes, but we have a good squad to try to compete and to get a good result.”
