Guardiola suggests City play with nine strikers

…jokingly, of course.

Despite Man City struggling to overcome RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Champions League tie on Wednesday night, manager Pep Guardiola remained in high spirits.

“Maybe in the second leg I will be crazy and play with nine strikers,” he joked after the 1-1 draw.

“You expect us to come here and win 0-5? That is not a reality,” Guardiola told BT Sport after the game.

“This is a competition that in the group stage many important teams are out. It is difficult. We are a good team and we do many, many good things. We continued to do this.”
