Man City boss Guardiola: We're going for both Cups

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says they're going for the Cups this season.

Guardiola wants to retain both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup – and insists he will not prioritise next month's Champions League showdown with Real Madrid in his bid for more glory at Wembley.

He said: “I rotate my squad quite a lot, I think, so I don't see any problems for the Madrid game.

“The players need rhythm so I am going to try to keep everybody involved. Sergio only played 15 minutes at Sheffield United so I am going to play the players who didn't play there against Fulham.

“For the United game, I will play those who don't play against Fulham.

“Hopefully it isn't going to happen, but we know there is a chance for players to get injured. If that happens another player comes in. That is the only thing I can do."
