Pep Ignoring Old Trafford Showdown

Pep Ignoring Old Trafford Showdown

Pep Guardiola says he is fully focused on the Carabao Cup Final, not what happens between Liverpool and Manchester United.

The Manchester City boss may be hoping for a favour from arch-rivals Manchester United this weekend – but he insists it will be the furthest thing from his mind.

Pep’s City face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final this afternoon, while their chief title rivals Liverpool travel to Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Victory for the Merseysiders would take them three points clear at the top of the table but a defeat would see the initiative switch to champions City, who have goal difference in their favour.

“Of course, it would be good for us if Manchester United can get a result,” said Pep Guardiola.

“But we have a final and, once we are in the final, it is the most important game in the season.

“We know the Premier League is the most important one, of course, and the Champions League and the FA Cup, but it is what it is. The Carabao Cup is the most important game, by far.”
