His team will play against Fulham in tomorrow’s FA Cup match and Pep doesn’t believe they will field a strong team at the Etihad Stadium.
Fulham is currently in the third position of the English Championship with 49 points, just four less than first-place West Brom.
This is why Citizens’ boss Pep Guardiola believes the team will still field a strong lineup.
“If they had a game after two or three days, maybe, but I don’t think so. I think he will put into the game the best team as possible,” he told The Daily Mail.
“When a team is third in the Championship it is because they have something.”
Guardiola added: “They are a team that wants to play and they are a team with personality. We have spoken about that with the team and hopefully, we can be ready because it is a final.”
“The FA Cup is an important competition, it’s a traditional competition and we have to try to do our best.”
