With the pass to eighth of final like leaders of the Group C, the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola will confront to the Olympique of Marseilles in the last commitment of the first phase, where the Frenchmen have the duty to add of to three to do with the ticket to Europe League. Splitting of this premise, expects a rotation in the eleven of Pep, but seems that for him does not exist this possibility.
"It commits a big error in the concept of the word 'rotation'. It seems that it means something as 'I am the big star and today no game because I go it to do afterwards in the important party'. Think this would be an enormous error by part of the players", aimed Guardiola the Friday after confronting to the Fulham in the Premier, leaving clear the message: it will concede minutes in field to the players that deserve it, as it has 20 available players by week.

However, the requirement does not cease: "My players do not have to me show that they are good. This already know it, but would not be in this club. Simply they have to surrender in the field. This does not go of quality, goes of performance".
John Stones is the sample that it plays that that deserve it. In the past course, was left behind like fourth head office, surpassed by Eric García, and neither was considered in the announcements. Today it adds three parties like titling of the last four. By his part, Aymeric Laporte, the one who is considered like the best head office of the "citizen" , accumulates four absent commitments, the last was in front of the Tottenham.
"Have 19-20 available players, and have to know that to play have to do it the best possible. The statistics, the records; it is the past", exposed Guardiola, taking for granted that his main aim is of the season is to struggle to the end by the Premier and the Champions.
