WATER way to earn a living for Manchester City's squad.

Boss Pep Guardiola has warned his Treble-chasing team that their marathon season is far from H2Over.

They could still face ten games in 38 days if they go all the way to the Champions League final in Istanbul on June 10.

And in the meantime, Pep wants Kyle Walker and Co to eat a lot, get plenty of kip, and drink nothing but water.

But he insists it is no time for his players to be putting their feet up yet.

Pep added: "We are not going to lose games because we are tired. You are tired when you are out of competitions.

"After you are out, the seasons are so long, they never end. You want to finish as soon as possible to start the next one.

"But when you are here, you are not tired, that's for sure."
