Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola feels that Manchester United might employ the same techniques in Carabao Cup as they had in the Premier League.
The two rivals once again come together for a clash on Tuesday for the first round of the Carabao Cup meet and Guardiola feels as though he’s prepared with what to expect in the game.
Guardiola said: “It will be quite similar. Of course at Old Trafford it will be quite different to here, but they are a team that are built to run.
“When they can run they are one of the best teams, and not just in England, I would say, because of the pace they have – [Daniel] James, [Mason] Greenwood, [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford and [Jesse] Lingard.
“I have the feeling they are going to run, one or two or three times, or as many times as possible, and we have to reduce the mistakes in the build-up. We have to be prepared for that but we have to do our game.”
“I am not going to prepare our game just thinking, ‘don’t let them run’,” he said.
“We have to go there and try to score a goal, play our game and try to get a good result from there.
