Man City boss Pep Guardiola makes Champions League claim after Leicester handed boost

Pep Guardiola is confident Manchester City will be playing Champions League football next season.

Guardiola’s men clinched the runners-up spot behind Premier League champions Liverpool thanks to a 5-0 thrashing of Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

Raheem Sterling bagged a hat-trick, with Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva also on target for the visitors.

The club will on Monday discover the outcome of their appeal against a two-year ban from European club competitions following alleged breaches of club licensing and financial fair play regulations.

City boss Guardiola is extremely optimistic about receiving positive news.

“It’s the decision, so it’s so important, of course it is,” the Spaniard said of the appeal verdict.

“What we have done is win our qualification on the pitch. Nobody can doubt about this.
