Guardiola demands more consistency from his side ahead of Norwich clash.

EPL winners Manchester City lost their Premier League crown to Liverpool and also could not retain the FA Cup after they lost the semi-final against Arsenal last week.

Ahead of their Champions League game next month at the Etihad, the Cityzens are leading 2-1 over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu with extreme desire of protecting their advantage to secure a spot in the quarter-finals.

Guardiola told reporters: “It’s nice to score goals, but we cannot deny it is not enough to finish [higher].

“We are 18 points behind Liverpool, so we have to analyse what happened and every game must be a target. Maybe scoring 100 goals will help to win the game.

“Then we will see the players preparing the game against Madrid; this game against Norwich and the way they train this week, we are going to pay attention to prepare to play against Madrid.

“Every day will be an exam for me to see who is ready to play this game. I would say against Arsenal we were not ready. Against Watford, it was a little bit better, but we still need to improve.”

“Everyone will be fit for Madrid, hopefully – except Benjamin Mendy who is suspended,” said Guardiola, making no mention of City’s record goalscorer, Sergio Aguero.
