Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has insisted he’s not thinking about playing Real Madrid next week Wednesday.

Manchester City are fighting to win the Premier League this season, and Guardiola has said that his thoughts are on their weekend game against Everton.

Guardiola said at a press conference: “My thought is just Everton – no more than that.

“It’s 11 months working for the Premier League. We don’t have much time to Madrid because we play Sunday – thank you so much – but it’s a real, real priority, Goodison Park.”

Real Madrid and Manchester City played a 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabéu last Tuesday, and will face each other at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
