Pep Guardiola unsure when Sergio Agüero will return for Manchester City

Pep Guardiola unsure when Sergio Agüero will return for Manchester City

City travel to Spurs on Saturday on the back of three successive defeats - two Champions League quarter-final losses to Liverpool and last weekend's derby set-back against United.

Guardiola is not ruling out further slip ups from his side and used examples from Spanish football and the National Basketball Association to prove his point.

Now Guardiola can not say for certain when City's all-time leading scorer will be available again. "That has happened. We have to try to focus on our games". "He was injured before the game (against Liverpool) but he made a huge effort to help us for 10-15 minutes". It was two up in the game before Paul Pogba inspired a United comeback, scoring twice in the second half of its 3-2 win. We have handled the pressure - good and bad situations - all season.

Regarding how pressure is more intense when trying to seal the title, Guardiola said: "That will be good for our future, you have to handle that. The only score I want to know is bogey or birdy", Guardiola said. Real Madrid, many years ago, lose six games in a row and didn't win the league. So of course it can happen, no doubts about that. "I think they need to be helped, but if the guys chose to do that, it will happen".

"Never before in the National Basketball Association had one team in the final recovered from 3-1 down". That is a good advantage. "We have 14 players plus the kids. Congratulations to the opponents if they beat us".

The Spaniard added that a trip to play fourth-placed Tottenham, who are unbeaten in the league since losing at City in mid-December, will be a stern test for his side.

A statement released by the Premier League stated the clubs have agreed that "advanced testing" around VAR will continue throughout the 2018/19 season.

"I think that was when he should have rested players and gone "right, we've got a big game, we'll win the league, whether it's the middle of April or the end of April, we're winning the league".

"The way we run is not a problem". "They are human beings and they are disappointed because they gave it everything".

English football's top-flight governing body has asked VAR to be used more extensively in the FA Cup and Carabao (League) Cup which has seen a number of high-profile incidents regarding the piece of technology during this campaign.

"The problem is we shot three shots on target against Liverpool at home, that is the problem".
