MANCHESTER City boss Pep Guardiola has heralded Sean Dyche's achievements at Burnley as 'amazing' ahead of the FA Cup third round clash between the two sides tomorrow.

Guardiola expects a tough challenge from Burnley, who are seventh in the Premier League, when they make the trip to the Etihad.

Guardiola said: "What he has done so far is amazing.

"So after the six title contenders, the next team are Burnley. They make amazing results. It's a tough draw for us but we want to keep going in that competition."

The City boss also claims winning all four trophies this season is "an illusion" believing it is far too early in the season to be talking about the quadruple.

City are 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League, through to the last 16 of the Champions League and into the Carabao Cup semi-finals and start their FA Cup campaign against the Clarets.

Guardiola said: "Maybe that question can be asked in March or April if we are still in all four competitors. After that, we are going to talk.

"But tomorrow is the third round of the FA Cup. So thinking about four competitions, it's an illusion, it's not realistic, I would say.

"We will need 32 players to play really well for four competitions and that is not going to happen in my squad, to have 34 players."

Guardiola made headlines earlier in the week when he suggested the heaviness of the festive fixture schedule was "going to kill" players.

Despite that, he says he has no intention of making wholesale changes for the third-round clash with Dyche's men.

Asked if he might field some of his younger players, he said: "No way. We are going to try to play the best team that's possible, because we play against Burnley. Against Huddersfield (last season), we needed a replay."
