De Bruyne is key to delivering the title - Guardiola

De Bruyne is key to delivering the title - Guardiola”

The Belgium playmaker marked his latest return from injury with a commanding display as City hammered second-tier Rotherham 7-0 in the third round of the FA Cup at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday (Jan 6). We wait to see if Guardiola sees Sandler as a controlling midfielder in the future.

"We spoke with him yesterday to play 65-70 minutes, full intensity, and to do everything that is good for his rhythm", Guardiola told a news conference.

"Raheem's work ethic, his physicality is incredibly strong, he has this mentality to create chances and score goals and it's good for him", said Guardiola.

"Last season he played an incredible number of minutes and this season it is just 400 minutes when everyone else plays 2,000".

"He's going to stay with us many, many years". Without him last season maybe it wouldn't have been possible.

"So far, we have done incredible in terms of results, but we have an opponent (Liverpool) that has done better". We can not expect him to be precise and clear and make good decisions in every single action.

Sterling opened the scoring for City in the 12th minute with a comfortable finish after linking up with De Bruyne inside the box. 'We do what we have to do to become a great, great club. "Today he (Foden) was there and his movement was incredible", Pep added. OTAMENDI's City kept a clean sheet as he scored the sixth goal of the match.

"I think he improved a lot and it's the same with Phil [Foden]".

Foden's goal - his first at the Etihad - did not come from the cleanest of touches but his general play impressed Guardiola. You get your games in the cup and any time a young lad gets an opportunity you've got to shine and show the manager - that's what I'm trying to do.

"They might have a game plan where they put five at the back and get men behind the ball - that's something we'll have to adapt to".
