Former Manchester City defender, Richard Dunne, has asked Pep Guardiola to tweak a few things if the Sky Blues are to challenge for the Champions League title next year.
Dunne believes that Guardiola needs to pick his battles wisely to progress further in the Champions League as he cannot go all out against teams who are not visibly vulnerable.
City's title win was officially confirmed as Manchester United suffered a shock defeat to West Bromwich at Old Trafford on Sunday. They have done exceptionally well in the Premier League, but according to Dunne, they'll need to a shuffle a few things to dominate Europe as well.

"The whole plan has been to be the best in Europe, and they’re certainly on their way, they’re getting there," Dunne said, as quoted by Talk Sport.
"I think the problem Pep has had, and he’s suffered it before, is where he’s tried to attack teams who are not there for the taking.
Dunne also wants Guardiola to sort City's backline and maybe add a central-midfielder to take some of the pressure off Fernandinho.
"They’re going to have to strengthen in the centre-half position," he added.

“When Kompany is there it’s great, but he’s getting on a little bit and Otamendi doesn’t appear to respond well under pressure.
As per reports, the Citizens are in the market for a forward and a reliable central-midfielder. Kylian Mbappe and Thiago Alcantara are on the top of Pep's wishlist
