Ederson's last-gasp penalty heroics saved Manchester City from defeat but a 0-0 stalemate at Crystal Palace on Sunday brought the Premier League leader's record-breaking 18-match winning run to an end.
"You have to look for the quality, not the quantity", said Guardiola.
When Gabriel Jesus broke down in tears after going off injured against Crystal Palace, many feared the worst.
"We have three or four days until the next game so we will see what Pep is going to do but for sure every player is going to be ready if he needs them to play", Fernandinho told reporters.
"I would prefer to win the Champions League over the league because it's something City haven't won yet", he said.
The Hornets hope to put a dismal end to 2017 behind them at the Etihad Stadium but Janmaat knows it will be tough against a side he believes are good enough to remain unbeaten throughout the campaign. "You can play every three, four or five days but not play every two days".
It took only 38 seconds for Manchester City to kickstart their rainy Tuesday night clash at home to Watford, with in-form winger Raheem Sterling netting the fastest goal of the Premier League season so far.
"Of course, space the [games] out".
"The people who understand about that, they say it is impossible to recover 48 hours after a game".
"And maybe Kyle will be out but you see how many players have got muscular problems in that period". Putting aside what he spends for players, at Bayern all you hear about is players saying how much that he [Guardiola] improved them. "Maybe we haven't played well enough, that is down for you to judge, but with those two things you can not have West Brom with five days to prepare while we have three", said Wenger, according to www.arsenal.com. "We have to protect players".
"He had some pain but wanted to play, if he wants to play then I want him to play". Today I don't know what happened, today it's about the last action, "said a disappointed Guardiola".
Sane in particular seemed to benefit from the return of David Silva, who he linked up with well all game.
Guardiola said the midfielder was "lucky" it was not more serious but didn't give any more details.
