Tue 08 December 2020 | 15:52

Manchester City manager states that he is going to pick a side to defeat the Ligue 1 side in the final group match and he will think about the derby when he comes to it.

Pep Guardiola

revealed his decision on not resting any players for the

Champions League

battle against

Marseille

, notwithstanding the Derby three days after.

The Sky Blues have booked the first title in the Champions League Group C with only one game to spare.

Manchester City

striker

Sergio Aguero

is up on his feet again and Guardiola is offered an almost full squad to pick from.

"

We are going to decide [on Aguero]. Maybe he will be on the bench, we’ll see his reaction tomorrow in his body, not just his knee,"

the City boss said.

"

The last two or three days he’s been part of the training and the reaction and the niggles from the recent past have disappeared.

"Everyone has played a lot of minutes so we’ll play the game to win. I don’t rotate the team, I try to put in the players in the best condition, decide the best [line-up] for specific teams, there’s not one team for one competition and one for another.

"Everyone was involved in last few days and that’s good in this tight schedule, everyone has to be ready

."

Manchester United

, however, have a serious battle on Tuesday with RB Leipzig. For them to secure their stay in the last 16,

Solskjaer

’s side needs one point.

"

They’ll be focused today and when the next game is a derby they will still be focused,"

he added. "

That’s my experience

."

City’s manager has been struggling to protect his team from injuries with the busy schedule.

"

The team that plays tomorrow, they can play against United, or maybe not

," he said.

"I want to win this game, it’s not because of one more day, or one less

.

"

In previous Christmas times we had less days, tomorrow we have the chance to win and then on Thursday or Friday we will think about United."
