Former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright says it will be a bad season for Manchester City if they do not win the Champions League.

Guardiola has led City to two Premier League titles since he replaced Manuel Pellegrini in 2016, but they are currently 22 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool with 13 games left to play this season.

The Citizens are up for a battle against LaLiga giants Real Madrid in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League, with the first leg on the 26th of February, however, Wright reckons City must channel their attention to Europe's elite competition.

"You feel if they don't win the Champions League then it's not a good season," Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live. "But if they do win it, it's a great season."

"I would start saving players for it because that's what City have got to start focusing on.

He added: "With the team he assembled, we thought it would happen in his tenure.

"He is three years in with a team that has played at a really high intensity and City have not been able to stay up with a Liverpool side that have kicked on."
