PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Pep Guardiola says he left out Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus for Manchester City's Champions League quarter-final first leg in order to have more of the ball. Guardiola's team vs Borussia Dortmund included Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne - but no Aguero, Jesus or Raheem Sterling. It was the same side that beat Borussia Monchengladbach in the last-16 second leg, as City look to win a quarter-final first leg in Europe for the first time. With just three days to prepare for this game, Guardiola says the focus since beating Leicester on Saturday has only been on City's play, as he explained why he opted to use a false nine, and whether there had been any thought of how to stop prolific Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

It's human beings vs human beings, they make mistakes, actions. After we rest, then Leeds, then travel to Germany." And when asked if there were any special plans put in place to stop transfer target Haaland - who has 20 Champions League goals in 14 games - Guardiola insisted once again that City are solely focussed on themselves. "No, absolutely not, we do our game," he said. "The players know how good he is."
