Pep Guardiola said his squad is stretched to the limit as Manchester
prepare to launch their League Cup defence after Monday’s opening
Premier League win against Wolves.

City claimed an impressive 3-1 victory at Molineux on Monday as Kevin
De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus struck in their Premier League

They remain without Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Oleksandr
Zinchenko, Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte and Eric Garcia while Ilkay
Gundogan is self-isolating after testing positive for coronavirus.

City, who have won the League Cup for the past three seasons, start
the defence of their trophy against Bournemouth on Thursday and
Guardiola knows they cannot afford to lose more players.

“All we want is the seven players that are out to come back,” he said.

“Now we have a competition that we cannot spend the energy that we
spent today, before Leicester (on Sunday), so we’re going to play mostly
academy players and try to keep the energy for the Premier League.

“With this lack of preparation and seven players out and not coming
back soon, we have to keep the players from Monday as safe as possible.

“We will see how many are available, how they recover. We have just
three days. We won the Carabao (League) Cup three times in a row and we
would like to continue but we don’t have the players in this period to
play every three days.”
