Pep demands total focus

Pep Guardiola will not be taking victory for granted when Manchester City play Championship side Bristol City in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

City remain on course for an unprecedented quadruple - they are 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League and came from behind to defeat Burnley 4-1 in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

However, Guardiola has demanded that there is no let-up from his players when they play a Robins side that knocked Manchester United out of the competition in the previous round.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss said: "To become a big club like the teams I've faced, or United or Liverpool with their history, you have to win.

"It is nice to have good performances but you have to lift the titles. It's important and we're going to try.

"Nobody can take away what we've done so far. But I think it's a big mistake just to be happy if you win [games]. We have to lift titles in the future - without them it's not enough.

"We're going to try to win the game against Bristol City and take the best result there - that's the only way I know."

City are 12/1 to win the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League this season and 6/1 to beat Bristol City 2-0 in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final clash on Tuesday.
