Guardiola upset about fixtures: “We’re going to kill the players”
Pep Guardiola’s focus wasn’t on his team’s fine performance on a miserable day against Watford, it was on the festive fixtures.
Manchester City returned to winning ways with a 3-1 defeat of the Hornets at the Etihad Stadium, but Guardiola says something has to be done about the congested fixtures.

And for a man whose side has dropped points just twice this season, it’s not like he’s talking sour grapes from losing matches.
There won’t likely be a winter break in England, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see fixtures given a little more breathing room in the future. Two matches in three days is tough for the depth of so many sides.
