Pep Guardiola RECAP press conference Man City Southampton preview and reaction to Champions League draw

Pep Guardiola has given his reaction to Manchester City’s Champions League draw against Atletico Madrid.

City travel to Southampton in the FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday aiming to beat Saints for the first time this season after being held home and away in the Premier League. The Blues are looking to keep their treble hopes alive and can enter the international break with a win at St Mary’s.

Guardiola did not offer a squad update but a City social media post this week hinted that Ruben Dias was back in training earlier than expected. He was ruled out for four to six weeks with a hamstring injury a fortnight ago, but could already be back on the grass. However, he is not in the Portuguese squad for next week’s international matches so he is unlikely to feature at Southampton.

City also discovered their Champions League opponents on Friday, so Guardiola should offer an instant reaction to their quarter-final draw in this competition.
