Guardiola sprung a surprise with his starting XI which ultimately backfired as Thomas Tuchel once again got the better of him this season.

And speaking after the match, he explained his decision to leave out the pair of defensive midfielders.

"I decided the decision, to have quality players," he said. "Gundogan played many years in this position.

"To have speed, to find the small players, the quality, the brilliant players, inside, in the middle and between the lines. This was the decision."
