EM – Pep Guardiola: Manchester City will play even if we only have 11 fit men


Pep Guardiola has said Manchester City will continue to play games even if they are reduced to 11 first-team players due to Covid.

Guardiola would not go into numbers but he announced yesterday that more of his players had tested positive ahead of tonight’s clash at the top of the table against Chelsea.

It came the week after seven first-team players and Guardiola contracted the virus and missed City’s FA Cup win over Swindon Town .
