Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola claims there are not enough players on the field against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup game, with irony on the organizers of this match.

         “Sailboat” just played a warm-up game, winning Girona 2-0 last Saturday. The next game will be against the Reds in the Carabao Cup on December 22, just five days after the end of the World Cup in Qatar.

         When asked about plans for cup games, Pep said on the club’s website: “We have four players, we have four or five players, so we have to see how the others are back.” 

         “We live in difficult times. We don’t have any players. But you know what? The smart people of football think they can program it like this. So we will play this game ufabet.”

         As for City’s latest friendly, just four players from the first team were Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez. 

t get through the group stages, then they will be able to play Liverpool. If not, then we will see. Players will come back, but I don’t know in what condition.”

City look to have avoided any major injury woes. Manuel Akanji, Aymeric Laporte and Rodri were knocked out in the last 16 whilst the likes of Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker saw their hopes ended in the quarter-finals, which means they will have had 12 days to recover before the Liverpool clash.
