Bag enjoy a night out after a 7-0 win over Leeds a few days earlier and the manager was unhappy with their behavior – especially with Covid cases on the rise.

Their manager declined to speak directly about the duo – but spoke again of the importance of how players live their lives off the pitch.

“In our careers, the work you do on and off the pitch is equally important,” said Guardiola. It’s very important.

“It is physically and mentally demanding – you have to live for your craft. Anytime, every second.

“Otherwise, there are people who will live day by day in this profession and they will last longer in it.

“But this is the message I gave them, six years ago, every year, every month, every day over and over again.

“You have to be prepared and a lot of players live this way and that’s why we were so consistent in previous seasons.”

Grealish and Foden did do not participate in the startup session the morning after their night out.

But the couple were reminded of their responsibilities by the manager, who was hoping the team can avoid the virus in the coming weeks.

“They’re not the rules, I’m not the police, tell them what to do,” he said. Everyone is old enough and experienced enough to know what to do.

“We are living in exceptional circumstances in our lives where people cannot live freely as they did in the past due to the pandemic.

“It is still here and everyone has to watch as much as possible. We are not alone in this world, we are living with everyone.

“Be careful, you can take it and be positive. We’re in contact so just be careful. We’ve been talking about that for a long time now.”

Asked specifically about the behavior of Grealish and Foden, Pep replied: “Fernandinho, Nathan Ake, Cole Palmer are not playing either.

“Some of the players went out to dinner. Absolutely we will clarify the situation – but not to you. That is all.”
