Pep: We're always looking to get better

Chelsea host Manchester City in a blockbuster clash on Wednesday, while Spurs are away at Swansea City. They are now seven ahead of second placed Tottenham Hotspur but can not afford to drop any more points as it will allow Spurs to further close the gap on them. "I'm sorry, Antonio, but we were".

"Hopefully he can help us in the games at the end of the season". But football is wonderful also for this type of result. "It is another game, nine left, we have to take points as much as possible and after we will see".

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

City led through a Gary Cahill own goal in December's reverse fixture but goals in the final half hour from Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard sealed a 3-1 comeback win for Chelsea.

That is despite a surprise slip-up at Crystal Palace last weekend and with Guardiola's City hoping to condemn them to another defeat on Wednesday.

After a dire run of form in the Premier League, Arsenal secured a ship-steadying share of the spoils against Manchester City at the Emirates on Sunday. But you must also pay attention when you attack because they have good players to play counter-attack: Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero, but also Kevin de Bruyne. I don't know exactly how many weeks he needs to come back but I think he is at the end of the part of the process to come back, so we will see. But Chelsea will be in Europe next year and they have the quality compete. But a real bounce back from last Saturday's disappointing display is truly needed.

Pep Guardiola: "Chelsea deserve where they are".

"When you are lucky enough to fight for the title there is the pressure, but not only for us, for a lot of teams". But we will be better. There are a lot of things we can improve, in the boxes especially.

Conte is again likely to be without Victor Moses for the visit of Manchester City as the wing back did not train on Monday because of a toe injury. We had some great banter with the United team, which included David May and Clayton Blackmore, and Chadderton boxer Anthony Crolla.

"We feel it is more fair because we are playing at the same time, maybe one day we play before, then they play before".
