FA fines Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola

"We play them in two or three weeks so I intend to take a look", the manager said, "But it is a big derby, an English classic, the history of both teams is wonderful".

City, who are 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League, are just four wins away from securing the title.

Manchester City's Spanish manager Pep Guardiola gestures on the touchline during the UEFA Champions League round of sixteen second leg football match between Manchester City and Basel at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on March 7, 2018. "Today, the players are off, so I don't exactly know the situation".

With David Silva also missing and veteran Yaya Toure in midfield, City lacked the zip and fluency that has characterised their play this season.

City were surprisingly beaten at home by the Swiss champions on Wednesday night - just their fourth defeat all season - although they made it safely through to the quarterfinals 5-2 on aggregate.

"We are very happy to be in the quarter-finals again because that gives prestige", Guardiola said.

"Any team that makes six changes may have problems but in the second-half, we thought we had finished the game. We need to be relaxed, stay calm and think about Stoke City". "Everyone is thinking about when we will win the title".

And while it may not seem like a big defeat in the grand scheme of things, Basel showed that the Premier League leaders aren't invincible at home, giving hope to the teams who stand between them and the title. They have already won the Carabao Cup and are also through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. That's why we have to be focused on what we have to do.

"Instead of being here, where we have been fighting for eight months with the weather, we will go there and train the same way but in better conditions", he said.

"In the second half we forgot to attack, we forgot to play", he said after the game, as quoted by BBC Football.

Manchester City's Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph are recovering well from their injuries and face fitness tests to determine if they will be available for Monday's Premier League game at Stoke City, manager Pep Guardiola said.

"And we will see our chairman and be there".

But talks have been put on hold after the former Barcelona boss confirmed that his agent did not fly to Manchester to discuss an extension. In two [match] weekends' time we have a game against United so we will watch it for sure.

"My agent is not in town".
