League leaders and 13 points clear off 2nd place Man United, Manchester City do deserve a break.
Guardiola’s men dropped points in a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor against a Burnley side that is always hard to break on home ground. They should probably change the ground’s name to ‘Tough Moor’, to make visitors aware of the effort they have to put in for maximum points.
The Cityzens will now enjoy a three-day-break to recharge their batteries. “Time off for everybody, officials, doctors, nobody in Manchester! If a game is in three days we're going to play in three days but we have until the next Saturday when they host Leicester City. So, we have a lot of games and the way we played today, I decide to give [everyone] three days off,” Guardiola said.
City is still in the race for four pieces of silverware this season: The Champions League, the Premier League, FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. Will Pep bag all four?
