Stones: Chasing Four Titles Will Take Its Toll

Manchester City centre back, John Stones believes playing in four competitions will hamper the club.

The Etihad Stadium club sustained their first loss of the season last week, losing 4-3 to Liverpool.

And despite Guardiola ringing the team on occasion, Stones believes battling for the quadruple is strenuous at best.

“We obviously wanted that [to go undefeated in the league], and I’m sure every team does, but it’s such a difficult thing to do,” the England international told UK newspapers.

“The four competitions we’re still in, the amount of games compared to some other teams, you know it takes a toll, no matter how much you rotate the squad.

“I think sometimes you’ve got to hold your hands up and say, ‘we gave it our best shot’, which we did. I think we’ve just got to move on.”
