Pep Guardiola added: “I have no alternative but to play the Wycombe match with young players, some players will rest in order to prepare for the upcoming matches, and yes a few academy players will play.”
And he continued, “Rodri was having some muscle problems, not big, but I don’t know how many days, the doctor couldn’t tell me.”
“Also, Robin Diaz and Joao Cancelo played all the matches, I don’t think they will play against Wycombe.”
