Manchester City squad miss Christmas party as Pep Guardiola fears drop in form

Manchester City squad miss Christmas party as Pep Guardiola fears drop in form

Manchester City players missed the club’s staff Christmas party on Thursday night, with Pep Guardiola fearful of risking a repeat of last year’s drop in form.

City lost back-to-back Premier League games against Crystal Palace and Leicester in December 2018 within a week of their previous staff celebration.

Although no players missed training last season, many did stay out until the early hours by going to a nightclub in Manchester following the party.

It is believed Guardiola blamed the night out for their shock 3-2 home defeat to Palace two days later, before they were then beaten 2-1 by Leicester on Boxing Day.
