Ruben Dias, Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Manu Akanji all missed Manchester Citys last Premier League game of the season on Sunday.

City were without the quartet for the clubs 1-0 defeat to Brentford, and speaking after the game, Pep Guardiola said they were mentally drained.

We had four, five players with niggles, not injuries. They were not fit for a few days, Guardiola said.

The guys who dont play here were really exhausted yesterday, we spoke with them, and they said they are mentally completely drained. The guys who play today deserve it, the minutes for Nathan [Ak].
