Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists he will stick with Fernandinho at centre back despite fearing Burnley’s aerial threat.

“When we beat Chelsea everyone said how fantastic Fernandinho was.

The Brazil international is set to start at Turf Moor on Tuesday as City aim to cut Liverpool’s lead over them to eight points.

Guardiola has told his players to avoid giving away set pieces, which could play into the hands of Sean Dyche’s side.

“Fernandinho is not the reason why we win or lose,” said the City manager.

“Defend high and try to play as much as possible and to avoid it as much as possible.

Guardiola insists he now sees Fernandinho as a defender, rather than midfielder, despite growing calls for him to be restored to his favoured role.
