Manchester City vs Crystal Palace
Manchester City’s next outing is scheduled to see them face Crystal Palace at the Etihad on Saturday.
The Citizens are heading into clash after suffering something of a loss at the hands of West Ham in the League Cup earlier this week.
The Sky Blues have dominated the competition under the command of Pep Guardiola so his departure in the 4th round was a surprise.
But the Manchester squad are certainly eager to bounce back this weekend against Palace.
City are unbeaten in the league this season since their first weekend loss at the hands of Tottenham.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, is struggling to win with Patrick Viera and has only won one in nine league ties with the Frenchman.
However, Palace has managed to tie six games this season, suggesting it won’t be easy this weekend.
Pep Guardiola on Patrick Vieira and Xavi
Before facing Crystal Palace, Pep Guardiola would speak to the media on Friday afternoon.
The Spaniard will debate various issues at his press conference, including Patrick Vieira.
Pep was asked if the Frenchman has a chance to coach Manchester City in the future, to which he replied:
“I loved seeing him again, he was here my first season here. It was an important part of Arsenal’s history. After going to New York, happy to have returned to the high level, doing really well, the last games were difficult. They showed their quality and I’m looking forward to seeing it. All managers around the world have the opportunity to manage here. “
On the other hand, Pep was asked about the possibility of Xavi replacing Ronald Koeman at Barcelona, to which he replied:
“In the first place, I don’t know what will happen. They have an intermin manager and I wish him luck, he is a close friend. Xavi, if it happens, I have no doubt that he is ready to do the job. Know the environment that is so important. He knows the game, he has passion. He has more experience now than I did when I took office.
“Koeman knows it and Sergi knows it and Xavi and I know it, success depends on the hiring and the players. People forget that we are responsible, but our influence is more minimal than people think. The success I had was due to the quality of the players. Xavi, of course, is really good, hopefully if Xavi is the next coach, the best and I hope that step by step the team can return ”.
