Guardiola came to my house when he was player: Wenger

"It's weird, football. The amount of times I've thrown the tea away you wouldn't believe".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has seemingly aimed a thinly-veiled swipe at rival manager Pep Guardiola over the latter's controversial decision to only include six substitutes during a recent Premier League game.

Guardiola went on to praise Bravo for his professionalism after Ederson was brought in from Benfica to be the club's first-choice keeper in the Premier League and Champions League.

"They tried to sign me when I was a football player, years ago", he explained before bursting into laughter.

To much merriment, he added: "I was not good enough, that is the truth".

The Catalan takes City to the DW Stadium to face the League One side in the fifth round, 15 years after he almost signed for Wigan.

"The same happened here at Manchester City when I came here with Stuart Pearce".

The two teams met in the FA Cup final in 2013 where Wigan caused one of the biggest upsets in football history. They were so clever.

They are huge favourites to progress to the quarter-finals against the Latics and should have enough quality to see off the League One outfit, even if they do make a number of changes to the starting line-up.

However Manchester City's next game following this match, is the Carabao Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley.

"I can not forget what happened here against Wolves".

On the other side of the coin, I am expecting Manchester City to play well and try to kill this game quickly.

"Gomes did play for us a couple of times in the Premier League and the FA Cup".

The 34-year-old Chilean lost his first team place last summer when Guardiola signed young Brazilian Ederson, who has been in inspired form this season.

"I don't do that to keep him happy", said Guardiola.

"In the top clubs we need two good goalkeepers, so you can not survive with just one goalkeeper".

When asked about "other managers" who had left a space on the bench, Mourinho told BT Sport: "I think it's a handsome moment for the players, even if they don't play".
