Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed he has two options for Champions League final against Chelsea on May 29.

Guardiola said: “I have an idea. I know how we play, but I have two options, we will see. I am not clear so these three games will tell me about their momentum and the chances they have to play.

“They (the players) want it. They will kill me to play, I know it. It’s nice and everyone can do it. It will be an incredibly tough decision for me, but I have to analyse the opponent and we will try.

“It’s tough in a normal game to tell players they aren’t playing, so, can you imagine Champions League final? But the players we have a good relationship and it’s a business, I’m sorry.”

He added: “The players follow the manager because you win. If you don’t win they leave you alone except a few exceptions. That depends on personality. That’s why today I observe the next few games and again in training.

“I have to see the way I want to play and defend, the mentality, the guys who handle the pressure and in that moment try to be honest with myself and the team and do the best selection possible knowing we have five substitutions available in the final.

“Everyone has to be ready because in a final many things can change or happen.”
