Cape Town – Manager Pep Guardiola is not concerned about fatigue as Manchester City continue to battle it out on three fronts.

The Citizens remain on course for a historic quadruple this season after booking their place in the final of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Next up is a Champions League quarter-final meeting at Tottenham on Tuesday, before returning to Premier League action at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Spurs should be fresher for Tuesday’s engagement, having not played for six days, but Guardiola says they can’t use that as an excuse.

Guardiola told City’s official website: “Of course, it’s an advantage [for Tottenham] but to fight for everything, you have to overcome that.

“Spurs have had six days to prepare and we have had two-and-a-half, but when you play this amount of games and win the Carabao Cup, it’s normal.

“If we were out of the cup, we would have had more days. Big clubs don’t complain about these situations. We are enjoying it a lot.

“We have already succeeded – it’s an incredible season for us. I know we will be judged on the titles we win but this season already is incredible.”

Guardiola’s charges are next up against Tottenham Hotspur in a Champions League quarter-final first leg encounter on Tuesday evening.

Kick-off is at 21:00.
