New signing won't upset Man City squad balance - Pep Guardiola

Right-back Walker was holding his groin at the end of Tuesday's game, and Guardiola says the club will have to "check it out".

"Of course we are going to speak every day with him after and before the games about how he feels, because when you have every three or four days some games, you are going to rest".

Pep Guardiola has admitted he wants to "escape" from a "terrible" holiday programme despite seeing Manchester City surge 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

After complaining about the winter schedule exclusive to the English league, while its European counterparts take breaks, Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola has promised his side that they would get their winter break anyway.

"I will be here one more year and after, we will see".

Given Jose Mourinho this week dismissed suggestions he might look to leave Manchester United as "garbage", the prospect of Guardiola and his old rival maintaining hostilities in the Premier League is an enticing one.

City have also been trying to secure new deals for Gabriel and Kevin De Bruyne along with midfielder Fernandinho, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

"I have until 2020, I think", said Aguero regarding his contract. "Before we came here he had long periods of injury and in these two years he didn't suffer that".

"I'm so, so happy here". You can not expect to win if everything is going perfectly'. In these 18 games, we have played against teams who have done high pressing, low pressing, counter-attacks, just set pieces, just like Tottenham who tried to go forward and attack, and in all of them, we have been able to beat them. "I want to win". "But tomorrow is the first round of the FA Cup". "I think they made the first contacts but I don't know if it is close".

Guardiola has been linked with a move for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez - a player who has reportedly caused a rift in the Gunners' dressing room - and, asked if the atmosphere at the Etihad could be upset by a new arrival, Guardiola told a news conference ahead of the FA Cup clash with Burnley: "If that player is nice then there is no risk".

"We spoke about [transfers] before the injuries to Gabriel and Vincent [Kompany]". The negotiations are the negotiations and sometimes it is not possible but they know, all of them, that we would like them to continue.
