Guardiola's first season in charge saw City eliminated by Monaco in the round of 16 and last term they lost to Premier League rivals Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

Leroy Sane needed only two minutes to score on his first Premier League start of the season and set Manchester City on its way to a 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.

Should he be passed fit, Delph will likely start at left-back, although Oleksandr Zinchenko, who also trained today, is another option and either Aymeric Laporte or Kyle Walker could also fill in.

"It is nearly impossible to be more pleased as a manager with him". Saturday's meeting with City sees them match up against the side that sits second in the Premier League with 2,726 completed passes through four matches, 497 more than Fulham. "Last season I said if I stay here, this guy will stay here because he is special", added the City manager.

"His body language is the same as last season and he was the best young player in the league", Guardiola said.

And Guardiola is unsure when the France worldwide will return from his latest setback, with City due to play Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday.

A superb piece of midfield skill from Bernardo Silva played Sterling clean through on goal only for the England global to strike the crossbar. "So I think I am not concerned for one second [with he idea that] we deserve more credit for the Champions League". Sterling's ball down the right flank found Bernardo, who cleverly keeps the ball on the line before cutting it back to Aguero.

'He is doing well, once again he helped us and he's a fantastic player.

And the 24-year-old believes that now he is familiar with life at City and with the demands of the Premier League, his form will only continue to improve.

"Lose the dribbling, it doesn't matter, but control the ball and pass the ball simple... miss that, there was lots of that".
