Manchester City's Pep Guardiola: I don't like playing on Mondays

John Stones: Man City not happy despite breaking UCL passes record

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Meanwhile, Guardiola has been fined £20,000 and warned of his future conduct by the Football Association for wearing a yellow ribbon in support of jailed politicians in Catalonia.

Manchester City defender John Stones said he and his teammates were "disappointed" not to have met their usual standards in Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League defeat at home to Basel. They have already won the League Cup and are also through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

He was not happy with the display, though, saying his players "forgot to attack" and is hoping for better when they travel to relegation-threatened Stoke on Monday.

"If you don't play good at Manchester City. the people are not going to say that because we don't have (a) legacy".

So, I think it's a really good idea that they've met. "And we look forward to the support of every single leader". Mr Odinga boycotted the repeat election in October, saying adequate electoral reforms had not been made.

Guardiola's side need a maximum of 12 points from their final nine matches to secure his first league title in England, having left their domestic rivals trailing this season.

'I know everyone wants to anticipate the situation, everyone is thinking about when we will win the title.

"It's nothing to do with Wigan - the reason we lost there was that for 50 minutes it was 10 v 11 and we were not precise enough to find a goal", Guardiola said.

'Nobody thought we were going to lose against Basle. When the weekend is over, they are like: "'The weekend is over, there are no more games.' But we have to play".

"Stoke away is always complicated. The players are off today, so I don't know the exact situation". Last season City won all three of their Monday fixtures, although two of them were on public holidays on Boxing Day and January 2.

But Ronaldo proved the difference again, the 33-year-old taking his tally for the season to 35 goals in 37 appearances. Bale had a chance to restore Real's lead in the 63rd minute but his header sailed inches wide of the upright.

The Spaniard said the tests are to determine if they will be available for Monday's English Premier League game at Stoke City.

"The boy is ready to make the next step in his career and I have a lot of meetings planned with clubs so we will see what happens".

The City manager's deal runs out at the end of next season and he has repeatedly refused to discuss in public whether he will extend it.

Although Guardiola told press the trio are recovering well, he asserted he will have a better idea of their fitness over the weekend.
