BILD information: Gundogan is NOT considering a Manchester City exit. City want to extend his contract but he does not want to put pressure on the club and is against the practice of having to extend a contract that expires in one-and-a-half years so early. [BILD]
Jamie Redknapp on De Bruyne: "He could be huge in this run-in. He has that nasty streak, the pass that can cut open a defence. He can score from 25 yards. He's devastating. It's such a plus to have him firing again."
Jamie Carragher: “History beckons for City. The clean sweep is on. They will never have a better chance to become the first English side to complete the quadruple. Such are the standards set by Pep Guardiola, winning one trophy will not meet expectations this season..”
Antonio Rudiger: “We have been there when it mattered. We were the first team to beat Manchester City after all. We must be tougher. By now, we have a lot of possession, but we need to get something dirty back in our game.”
Pep Guardiola on being informed Benjamin Mendy is in Hong Kong: "Hong Kong? That is a long way. He was in Barcelona yesterday. I didn't know it. What? Fuck. I'll have to install Instagram."
Pep Guardiola: "At Chelsea, I understand what they want to do and they are doing it. Good organisation, offensive and defensive, they know what they want to do. It’s a final for us. We have to play in that way."
Pep Guardiola: "Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy are not available." Pep Guardiola: "Benjamin Mendy is injured and it's not easy. Meniscus. It is not easy. He needs to readapt. You can’t return and train for two days and then you are fit. You have to be careful."
Pep Guardiola - Pre #MCICHE: "We have played one more game. Liverpool and Tottenham and Chelsea have one more. But we cannot deny it. A few days ago we could be seven points behind."
