No One's Buying Pep Guardiola's Excuse For Having Just Six Substitutes

With over three months of the 2017/18 season still left to play and Guardiola's men hoping to win a historic quadruple, not many fans will be thinking about a summer vacation to the USA just yet.

Guardiola, as well as Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, have called for referees to protects players from unsafe challenges following recent bad tackles by West Brom's Matt Phillips and Cardiff City's Joe Bennett on City players.

"I remember Pep himself when he was at Barcelona talking about why buy players when you can play young players, but even he now at Man City they're buying players, there are not many young players coming through the academy that they're playing".

City had been keen to recruit the former Arsenal man with only six months of his contract in North London remaining.

"But football is about goals".

City have endured a hectic season having progressed to the Champions League last 16, the FA Cup fifth round and the League Cup final apart from dominating the league and Guardiola said he would rest his players following the Burnley game.

#PEP: We played good. We needed to score the second, third and fourth when we had the chance.

Somehow Burnley was still in the game and they came close to leveling when a fine Lennon strike was pushed against the woodwork by Ederson.

"What they have done this season, Burnley, is fantastic".

On Sky Sports Gary Neville said, "I was really hoping he wasn't going to give the answer that he did".

Sean Dyche's side are winless in eight league matches, drawing four and losing four.

At Top of The Rock he was accompanied by excited City fans wearing shirts and scarves. We've been beaten 3-0 and 4-1 by them in our two previous games. Maybe people don't realise, but the way we played was outstanding.

"Then we must try to start next season in a good way, like we did this season, but try to be consistent and try not to lose points like we did this season in some matches where we shouldn't".

"The way we played today, in the build-up, the patience, defending the long balls, second balls, just... we just missed chances to score more goals".

Jamie Vardy smashed the hosts in front, but Swansea's rise under Carlos Carvalhal continued as they extended their unbeaten run to seven games thanks to Federico Fernandez's equaliser to edge out of the bottom three on goal difference. Not when you're us. But we still have some fine quality and we show that with goal.
