'I take cups seriously': Pep Guardiola aims jab at Jurgen Klopp

3:09 Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Rotherham and Preston

Versus Rotherham we played with nine players who didn't play against Liverpool, but it was still a good selection. We want to cut the field all the time for 10 years, so it's better conditions for both teams. Normally when this kind of thing happens, always at the end... karma or something like that punishes you.

"I prefer to try and do as well as we can, and I like to be in the four competitions for as long possible", he said. It's hard for me to choose, but I never give Danilo four or five games in a row. You have to do the best for the opponents, for the game, respect the game and the rules. "I trust the groundsman, I never made a phone call to say do damage to our opponents".

Manchester City cruised to the fourth round of the FA Cup after thrashing Championship side Rotherham United 7-0 in the third-round clash on Sunday afternoon.

The League Cup was the first trophy Guardiola lifted as a manager in England, though he admitted it remained lower on the list of priorities.

"We have to carry on, now he is back and he is now fresh in mind and legs".

The Blues are in second spot in the Premier League, semi-finalists in the Carabao Cup; in the last 32 of the FA Cup and last 16 of the Champions League. Everybody is happy to win but nobody is sad if they go out in that competition.

Phil Foden will not be allowed to leave Manchester City on loan during the January transfer window, manager Pep Guardiola confirmed.

Guardiola also made reference to youngster Brahim Diaz who has joined Real Madrid having become frustrated with the lack of first-team chances at City. We have done incredible in terms of results.

"We wish him all the best because he's a nice guy but on the other side, again congratulations to the academy and for the club to work so well".

The Belgium worldwide has been with the Club since 2008 and has made 348 appearances to date and is City's most successful captain of all time. Going to Real Madrid is not a bad step so hopefully he can take the minutes he wants to take and he didn't want in the last period, for many reasons.
