Manchester City defeated Burnley 3-0 in the previous League Cup, and Guardiola accepted an interview with Sky Sports after the game.
Guardiola said: "The important thing is that we did not lose the ball. The overall performance of the team is very good. We are still far from the best state because we haven't done much training. We have many players absent. 6 players. It is because of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, and there are 4 players because of injuries."
"However, when we have a complete lineup, we will gradually perform better. I hope it won't be too long, but we are in the quarterfinals again, which is great."
"When you lose, the most important thing is the next game. First of all, this is because if you lose this game, you are out. Second, we have two games before the national team game day. Some players Need to participate in the game, we do not have a preseason, so it is very important to give them time to play."
"Ferran Torres needs to improve in some areas because we don't have much training or communication. He has skills and is very young. He is aggressive on both sides. He is always paying attention to the situation on the court."
When talking about Otamendi, Guardiola said: "I have to thank Otamendi. He is one of our successful members in recent years. In the season when the team won the league championship with 100 points, Otamendi’s performance is incredible. He once went into battle with a broken ankle and 20 stitches. He has strong willpower, so I want to wish him and his family all the best, and I will always Remember his performance in this club."
"I believe Diaz will become a great player in the next 6 or 7 years. We are very happy to sign him. Our defense is a very young team. We will start training as soon as possible tomorrow."
