Pep Guardiola is confident about Manchester City's position to defend against all the financial allegations

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, thinks the team is well-positioned to combat the serious financial claims made by the Premier League

Following a four-year inquiry, the Premier League winners were charged with over 100 financial code violations that occurred between 2009 and 2018.

On Sunday, City welcomes Aston Villa to the Etihad Stadium in an effort to rebound after a close setback to Tottenham the previous week. Tottenham defeated Pep Guardiola’s team, who put up an unexpectedly feeble and lacklustre performance in north London, thanks to Harry Kane’s game-winning goal.

For the first time since the Premier League penalised Manchester City earlier this week for breaking financial fair play rules, Guardiola addressed the media on Friday afternoon. The Catalan was questioned about his communication with Ferran Soriano and Khaldoon Al Mubarak, the chairman and CEO of City, since the news broke on Monday morning.

Arsenal, who are in first place and have a game in hand over City, are still in contention for a third straight league championship, but City are still in second place and are five points behind them. Guardiola was also questioned about how he can retain the team’s attention on problems on the field despite the distraction that the Premier League’s claims will unavoidably generate.

When City and Pep Guardiola welcome Aston Villa to the Etihad Stadium, they will have a chance to make a statement to the rest of the division. The matchup against the Midlands side offers City an excellent opportunity to get back on track and maintain the pressure on Mikel Arteta and Arsenal. The reigning English champions have come under fire for their lacklustre performances of late.
