Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo says the 1-1 draw played out between the reverse fixture earlier this season was a crucial moment for his side's belief they belong in the Premier League.

"If you are the only one who want players it's easy", Metro UK quoted Guardiola as saying. "We know it's going to be hard when you see the other teams in the league but we know we can achieve it if we are focused and concentrate. I know exactly what they do, with the (City) academy, with the first team and they are doing it really well".

Guardiola did not reference De Jong but conceded City face a hard task beating Barca and Madrid when it comes to transfers.

"But the players who don't play know they have to be at a high level because the other ones, if they're injured, they can play".

Pep: Gundogan could be future Ferna successor: Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on Ilkay Gundogan.

"A month ago, I started reading 'Ruben Neves, £100m.' That is not going to happen, we are not going to pay £100m for a holding midfielder. We have a limit and cannot spend more so that's why we need to be careful with the players and try next season to see what we can do to improve". The 20-year-old is a versatile midfielder who has often been stationed alongside Ndombele in a deep-lying role, but can also play further forward.

"I reflected on it briefly and wondered if they were talking correctly and said, 'No, I can not accept it, come on Spurs!'"
