Pep Guardiola says Manchester City will keep it simple and stick to their tried and trusted method of taking it one game at a time when they face Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Wednesday.

City tackle the Bundesliga outfit in Budapest looking to extend their record run of wins to 19 games in all competitions, while another victory would be a big step in their bid to progress into the last eight in Europe.

One step at a time, one game at a time.

Guardiola's side have been relentless in recent months, surging to the top of the Premier League table and reaching the EFL Cup final and quarter-finals of the FA Cup, but attention now turns back to the Champions League.

The City boss says it doesn't matter which competition his side are in, though, they are just focused on winning every time they step out.

He said: "It’s the same process, think about the Borussia game, then West Ham, then Wolves, then Manchester United. This is what we are going to do. One step at a time, one game at a time.

"It's a football game tomorrow. We change a lot of competitions - Carabao Cup, FA Cup, Premier League and now Champions League.

"It's a football game, 90 minutes. We will try and do a good game and get a good result, then we will think about West Ham. We have a desire to play good - not just in this competition, that desire was there for Arsenal, against Everton. That is what we have to do."

City are 1.30 to win on Wednesday evening and the draw is 5.25, while the Citizens are 3.50 to triumph in the Champions League this season.
