Pep Guardiola defended his decision to name only six substitutes for Manchester City's 1-1 English Premier League draw at Burnley, claiming that he did not have enough players to fill his bench despite boasting the EPL's most expensive squad.
"We don't have any more players, ' complained Guardiola. Some of our play was exceptional, we dominated but didn't score our chances and you get punished by a team that really stuck to their gameplan", the Belgium worldwide said.
If De Bruyne was feeling exhausted he hid it well, but Sterling was more of a concern, having already missed a couple of chances before he somehow turned the ball wide from two yards in front of an open net. "They did everything they could to create something out of nothing and to contain some our play".
"You have to look at it and think we are in a position where we can nearly afford to have a little bit of a learning sting, if you like".
"It takes a lot of personality to do that". We don't show teams too much respect.
Despite slipping up and dropping points with a 1-1 draw at Burnley on Saturday, City remain comfortably clear at the top of the Premier League, 13 points ahead of neighbours United.
Zinedine Zidane: 'I already have the players I need'
Sergio Ramos, Cristiano Ronaldo and Isco were all able to join in with Real's final training session of the week. This weekend they need three points, but they also need to get that swagger back.

Barricades were erected by the forces with pedestrian and vehicle movement only allowed after thorough frisking and questioning. The area around the cricket stadium was sealed on Wednesday for full dress rehearsal of the Republic Day Parade.
"I'm going away, it doesn't matter where", said a exhausted De Bruyne, who still ran Burnley ragged for most of the 90 minutes.
"I've said it before - you feel great for 10 games, then you feel okay for 10 games, and then the rest you feel like s**t". Sometimes, they got out, sometimes, we managed to put them under pressure. There are not many squads that could easily absorb the loss of David Silva, John Stones, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus.
City are not back in action until Leicester's visit to the Etihad next Saturday, which is their longest gap between matches since the November global break, and Danilo has welcomed the rest which will come this week with Guardiola giving his squad time off until Wednesday. "We only have 15 or 16 players available at the moment so we need to get through it". "I'm going away, it doesn't matter where!"
The 29-year-old, who spent a year at the Etihad Stadium in the 2010/11 season, also worked with Pep Guardiola for three seasons at Bayern Munich and benefited from it, developing into a better player under Pep's tutelage.
"Sometimes, we play shit, we win 1-0 and you say how good Manchester City is", remarked Guardiola.
Kompany said: "We're disappointed, of course, but some of our play was exceptional".
