City's youth players waiting for Pep's decision

In order to let his first-team take a breather, Pep Guardiola has not ruled out calling up several youth players to play this Saturday against Sheffield United. It so happens that City's youth team play in the semifinal of the FA Cup on the same day, so its coach is waiting for a decision with bated breath!

After beating Olympique Marseille 3-0 in the Champions League, Manchester City will return to the Premier League feeling invincible. But given the burden of matches, Pep Guardiola has not ruled out playing several youth squad players.

During the week, players like Cole Palmer, Tommy Doyle, Liam Delap or Taylor Harwood-Bellis have been training with the first team, and it is possible that some of them will be on Guardiola's squad list to face off against Sheffield United.

The problem, according to the 'Manchester Evening News', is that the Manchester City's youth team have a major game ahead in the FA Cup, where they play the semi-final this Friday against Blackburn Rovers.

It has been reported that Carlos Vicens, the coach of the youth squad, is on the verge of not being able to count on some major parts of his team.

It is always seen as a positive thing when a youth squad makes the leap to the top level, but perhaps some priority should be given to the semifinal of the FA Cup. Therefore, we will have to see if Guardiola lets them play the cup or decides to keep them to play against Sheffield.
