Following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola defended his team selection.

Guardiola made some changes for the game against the Blues after their 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

At Wembley, the Spaniard made eight changes, starting players like Raheem Sterling and Ferran Torres.

Zack Steffen, the stand-in goalkeeper, was to blame for Hakim Ziyech’s game-winning goal 10 minutes into the second half.

Guardiola acknowledged that Chelsea deserved to win, but he declined to blame his team.

“Everyone deserves to play because you have two and a half days to heal and you have to play away from home and drive for more than three hours.

“However, don’t accuse us of not paying attention. You couldn’t claim the squad arrives in the final stages of all competitions. When this team won three or four Carabao Cup finals in a row. Let’s just say we didn’t win the game. When you lose a game, you make bad decisions, but that is a weak point, my friend. It’s atrocious.

“It was a close game, we couldn’t win it, but congratulations to Chelsea, they’re a top team.”
