Manchester City boss Pep
Guardiola has spoken with his players to stop the rot ahead of their League Cup derby against Manchester United tomorrow night (8.45pm).
City won their opening 10 games in all competitions but Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Southampton at Eastlands
Stadium was their fifth without a win.
That run has seen them lose ground to Barcelona in the Champions League and allowed their Premier League rivals to close the gap at the top.
The Spaniard says: “I was a football player and I know this can happen.
“You are able to win 10 times in a row and after you are not able to win five times.
“That is part of football.”
