This week, where City faces a Champions League quarter-final second leg followed by an FA Cup semi-final, represents a significant challenge. It’s a week that has often dashed dreams of multiple trophies.

Guardiola’s response to such intense weeks has evolved. Previously, he may have made substantial changes for the FA Cup semi-final, prioritizing the Champions League.

However, with the Champions League game at the Etihad this time, Guardiola’s approach may differ. Nonetheless, facing Chelsea after a demanding midweek fixture adds to the complexity.
