City manager Guardiola is concerned about the workload his players will be subjected to, with Premier League chiefs determined to play the remaining 92 matches in less than six weeks.

PEP Guardiola is praying Manchester City can avoid injuries as he does not believe Premier League players are ready for the frantic return from the coronavirus suspension. City could then be involved in an eight-team knockout bracket to complete the Champions League in mid-August, which would eat into the squad's preparation time for the 2020-21 season.

"The problem is not to play one game, the first one and the second one", said Guardiola, whose team are 25 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool.

"You ask me how is the team?" Sorry for the names I forget, nevertheless they know who they are.

"But the way we are right now, I think like other clubs, is we don't know".

Premier League clubs face a hectic schedule in a bid to finish the season. That caused the suspension of the Premier League, which will end after 100 days.

Guardiola said "most of the players are well" ahead of returning to action at the Etihad Stadium, where the attendance will be restricted to around 300 individuals.

Walker apologized for hosting a party at his home during the lockdown.

It was claimed that in May he visited his parents and sister before lockdown rules were eased, and also took a bicycle ride with a friend.

"I judge my players on what happens on the pitch", Guardiola said. In order to do that he needs to feel valued, I think he needs to feel that he belongs to us and we want him. "The human being always goes first before the football player".
