Guardiola Unsure How Long Aguero Will Be Out

Pep Guardiola says he will accept his punishment if UEFA hit him with a touchline ban for being sent to the stands in Manchester City's Champions League defeat by Liverpool - but insists he will not change.

'Sometimes the referee sees body language that's not correct.

Guardiola, who said that City have 14 players available "plus the kids" for the clash with Tottenham, does not know when Aguero will pass fit. The players have shown every day, in every game [since then] that it's not done because if it was they wouldn't play the way they play.

When City won their first Premier League title in 2012, they pulled back an eight-point deficit with only six games left, and Guardiola said: "Of course it can happen, I assure you".

"But it's in our hands, we don't depend on anyone else, and that's a good advantage". "He was injured before the game (against Liverpool) but he made a huge effort to help us for 10-15 minutes". The people talk a lot, not knowing exactly what happened before the game.

Guardiola also noted that John Stones is still recovering from a thigh issue, Benjamin Mendy is out with an ACL injury, and midfielder Fernandinho is suspended for yellow card accumulation.

'You judge results, ' he added. So if we lose, we're going to do it in a similar way to the way we played against United and Liverpool. The pundits said it was impossible for us to drop points but in one week we lost three games.

They will represent a huge challenge for City tomorrow, and the former Barcelona boss knows that only too well. We're 13 points ahead plus (a better) goal difference and we deserve to be there. "It is going to be hard for us". We'd won the last five games before's just thinking about the strength of Tottenham. "So, we have to do it, like we have all season". We need two wins, and when we win the first one the second will be easier. A team that included players such as Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, David Beckham, Iker Casillas and Raul lost six of their last seven games to finish seven points behind Valencia having led by 11 points at one stage.
