Man City fullback Danilo welcomes free week

Manchester City fullback Danilo has welcomed their extended break.

City are not back in action until Leicester's visit to the Etihad next Saturday, which is their longest gap between matches since the November international break.

"It is very important. It is a very intense competition, having games every two or three days. We know how difficult and demanding it is," said Danilo.

"It is very important to rest our bodies and clear our minds and come back to prepare for the next game fresh and relaxed."

On their draw at Burnley, he added: "I think it is important to come to a ground like this and get points, we know how difficult it is. They are a really physical team and don't make you feel comfortable at any time.

"We controlled the whole game but we didn't win, so that's why we are not 100 per cent satisfied."
