Pep Guardiola said he does not know how to stop Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar as he prepares for Manchester City's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

The teams meet in France on Tuesday, and ahead of the game, Guardiola said it will be almost impossible to contain Mauricio Pochettino's front three.

"I don't know," Guardiola said at a news conference on Monday after being asked how to stop Messi, Mbappe and Neymar. "This amount of quality, I don't know what we should do to stop them, honestly.

"They're so good. This amount of talent all together, to control it is so difficult."

Guardiola knows all about Messi's quality after their time together at Barcelona.
