Gundogan had told Sky Deutschland: "We were not courageous enough in the game and we made a lot of simple mistakes".

Asked how we'll approach a game against a team whose Premier League fate has already been sealed, Mauricio replied: "Always with all the respect".

Guardiola is wary of the threat Roy Hodgson's side will pose, warning: "We knew it from weeks ago - Selhurst Park is always hard; not just for the stadium but the quality of players they have".

Guardiola said: "Playing wide he is a fighter and he is so intelligent and clever defensively". Tomkins came off in the second half in the win against Newcastle and will miss the rest of the season.

"We were there many, many times".

"We defended the set-pieces when they are so strong and after when we conceded a goal there were 10 minutes left and nothing happened", he said.

"In other games, that was completely true".

Palace are 12th in the league after a 1-0 win away at Newcastle last weekend.

Under United States Golf Association rules, a ball isn't considered to be "in play" until it's actually hit from the tee area. Matt Kuchar , Ian Poulter and the caddies replied in unison that the shot wasn't intentional and there was no penalty.

"Our game at Tottenham was much better than against Schalke". We chose to play a different type of game.

"We reacted quite well in both situations".

Guardiola also called for the performance to be viewed within the context of City's relentless form over the past two seasons.

On the same day, Manchester United defender Chris Smalling was shoved by a spectator who had entered the field during a Premier League game at Arsenal.

"We have been incredible for 20 months", he added. "We lost two games in the last 23 and the way we lost ..." "We knew it from weeks ago, how it would be between these important games and Tottenham in the Champions League".

"Yesterday I reviewed the game. We have won 180 points in two seasons".

"We had a plan and the players know why we took those decisions for the way we wanted to play in the first leg". I do not agree with what Ilkay says. It can be a hard game because you don't know how they're going to approach it and the most important thing is to be focused on our performance.

"We thought of more of a low game, with more passes and more control to attack in the right moment". We were stable. Of course the competition is tough and the opponents are good.
