Manchester City have an FA Cup quarter-final at Newcastle on Sunday night and it is that game Guardiola is prioritising.
“We can’t deny that we have one eye on Newcastle,” Guardiola said.
“Chelsea and Liverpool are prestigious but Newcastle is or game. A final. We have one eye.
“It depends on physical condition, the minutes they have played. We take a look a little bit at what is going to happen, not just Chelsea.”
