Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has rotated his side to a great extent this season and has used a number of different players as right-backs.
Pep Guardiola admits Manchester City lack the "mentality" to compete with Europe's elite and plans to address the problem in this summer's transfer market. Look for an exciting, attack-heavy game that will showcase both team's strengths. For City, it was the first of the match. By the way, with the teams of the top 6 "Soton" will play in five of the remaining eight matches of the championship.
"If you want to become a stronger club and stronger team you can not drop points at home".
"Do the players believe they can't lose?"
They may have missed the shot at the Premier League title, but Manchester City still have a lot to play for.
"Manchester United have a game [Sunday] and another game in hand and still have to come to the Etihad", Guardiola added. In Italy and Spain, that does not happen. All of us are proud and our fans are happy.
"This result is so important for our qualification for the Champions League".
City wrapped up the win with two goals in three minutes.
Antonio Conte, in contrast, has made just 33, and Mauricio Pochettino 61.
"We are far away", said Guardiola. Last week I decided on Claudio and Saturday I will decide (again).
Guardiola's men face Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final a week on Sunday before hosting United in the Manchester derby.
"It's a disappointment because we can do better, we can create better opportunities".
Meanwhile, City have no injuries to worry about, with captain Vincent Kompany set to return to the starting line-up after being given a rest against Hull City.
Sure there are others in the Premier League who have signature celebrations, dance routines and/or unique handshakes. "I would have been done and dusted if I needed every single time to get back in and time to adapt", Kompany said after only his eighth appearance of a frustrating stop-start season.
"I have been lucky I can make..." Where I am at physically does not matter.
"For me it's always a long journey back", Kompany told BT Sport. 'Me, Stones, Otamendi. It is a cliche but we have to take things game-by-game. But since "St. Marys" "saints" in the current season is already lost, "Tottenham", "Chelsea" and "Arsenal", to put in this game we recommend all the same on the second team.
