Man City manager Pep Guardiola is indifferent about Aston Villa, their opponent in the last week of the English Premier League this season.
He warned his players to just enjoy the moment against Aston Villa so as not to be affected by the amount of pressure in the party.
Manchester City almost lost when they visited West Ham United in the 37th week of the 2021/2022 Premier League at the London Stadium,
The race for the Premier League title this season lasted until the last week. Currently, Man City is only one point ahead of Liverpool, who is ranked second.
Manchester City will face Aston Villa in the last weekend. The match will take place at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday (22/5) at 22.00 WIB.
Victory will ensure The Citizens become champions. However, if you slip at this last corner, then Man City can be overtaken by their rivals.
Guardiola is well aware of the pressure that comes before the match against Aston Villa. Therefore, he did not want to think too hard, including tactics in the match.
Think about what we have to do to beat Aston Villa,” Guardiola told the club’s official website.
Despite playing at home, Manchester City have almost run out of ideas to find gaps in the Manchester City defense. Until in the 68th minute, manager Pep Guardiola entered Phil Foden to replace Riyad Mahrez.
Pep Guardiola insists his squad will play optimally and without a burden.
“Are they going to play with Ings and Watkins or just with Watkins? Playing with defensive midfielders or not?
“Should we be worried? No, going to the game to try to enjoy the moment. If we’re having a hard time, let’s go again and try to enjoy it.
“From my experience, that’s the best way to approach this situation.”
Anything can happen in a game this weekend. Guardiola again appealed to his players to remain calm no matter what happened on the pitch.
“It’s hard to control your emotions when you know what you’re playing for. The players are human but this is football, when you think it’s over, it’s not over.
The importance of not having to tell them. They know it, they feel it.”
