Guardiola still considers Fernandinho a valuable asset, so City was right to prolong his contract.
It is still amazing to see Rodri sitting on the bench.
Fernandinho was the best on the pitch with five tackles against Spurs. However, he lost nine out of fourteen ground duels and lost possession 17 times. He also failed to finish all three of his long balls, had six missed shots, and was fouled past six times.
Guardiola may be tempted by Rodri to serve as the defensive pivot for his three-man midfield against Norwich.
