“We don’t have the Weapon that Chelsea has”- Pep Guardiola expose
Ahead of the game between Manchester City and Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge
Pep Guardiola has admitted that his team lacks the ‘Weapon’ possessed by Thomas Tuchel’s Boys.
“Strikers are strikers. They live a little bit outside the team bubble and for themselves, but these are the most difficult players to take,” Guardiola told reporters ahead of City’s trip to Stamford Bridge.
“We had the privilege to have Sergio for many years”
“Unfortunately for the last year-and-a-half he was out with injuries and we could not use him much”
“We survived without him in a good way in the way we played.”
“There are two options that we have right now: complaining, or saying we have exceptional players.”
“We don’t have this weapon that others teams have like Chelsea, Manchester United or Tottenham or other teams so we have to use what we can do as a team”
“We don’t have a player to score 25 league goals for himself so we have to do it as a team. This is what we will try this season.”
“I’m not going to deny what a player Romelu Lukaku is,” Guardiola added.
“He was in the Premier League, he made his first step at Chelsea and then especially at Everton he made a step forward under Ronald Koeman and after he went to United.”
“At Inter Milan he took another step. Antonio Conte can improve every single player”
“That works with him and he came back to the champions of Europe. The team was already so strong and with him is now stronger.”
Chelsea and Manchester City Go head to head in a top of Table Clash.
A win for Chelsea will see them remain Firm at the top of the table while a win for Manchester City will see them draw level in point with the Blues.
