Pep Guardiola insists he doesn’t have time to practice penalties after seeing Mancheser City miss two spot kicks against Everton.
Draw was probably the least City deserved after controlling most of the game but they have now gone three in succession without a victory having previously won their previous 10 in all competitions.
Manchester City miss a total of four penalties this season – with Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero guilty of failing from 12 yards in the 1-1 draw against Ronald Koeman’s team.
Aguero has missed four for club and country this season, with his latest coming just days after fluffing his lines for Argentina in midweek.
Guardiola conceded he may have to start practicing in training – but claims City simply didn’t have chance before Saturday’s draw.
“I don’t have time to practice everything I want to practice,” he said. “Penalties you can practice in training, but training there is no one there.
“In the final of the Champions League, that is crucial.”
“I am not frustrated with the team,” he said. “When you lose in Tottenham the way you lose, you shake hands and make compliments to Everton for the way they defend.
“I am sad for the players. They deserve to win the game.
“They did everything to win it.”
