Man City boss Guardiola: Sane knows why he's not playing

Leroy Sane Man City 2018-19

"With Pep Guardiola, we are witnessing an wonderful title race, the two teams play the right way, the managers perform the right way, and I have to say, from our point of view, it is brilliant to watch, even though it is painful for me".

Guardiola attracted criticism for what was seen as a conservative team selection against Spurs in midweek, leaving both Kevin de Bruyne and Leroy Sane on the bench until the final minute, while peripheral figures Fabian Delph and Riyad Mahrez started.

They have the chance to go top for a couple of hours today with a win at Crystal Palace, which we'll be bringing you live coverage of right here, before Liverpool take on Chelsea in the game's marque fixture - that's at 4.30pm today and we'll have updates from that game, too. We did it quite well.

"That's true (it is a unsafe game)", said Guardiola. "After the penalty, Sergio reacted incredibly well and was mentally strong and the team was stable".

Then comes a midweek derby at Manchester United and a trip to Burnley before potentially two more Champions League games in the space of a week in the semi-finals. The way Liverpool have performed this season, this would be a far bigger achievement this year to win the league, than last year. We have 180 points in two seasons, with six games left. Ilkay can say whatever he wants.

"Now it doesn't count if this decision was good or not after the game", he began.

"We have been incredible for 20 months", he added.

The Blues travel down to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Sunday, and Guardiola admitted that he has been impressed with the progress Roy Hodgson's side have made over the past year.

"Selhurst Park is always hard, not just for the stadium itself but for the quality of the players they have".
