Pep Guardiola says Leroy Sane needs to stay focused

  • Anthony Knockaert and Shane Duffy have combined for three goals this season

He is reportedly targeting a return to first-team action for the Manchester Derby which comes in the middle of November, but after returning to training earlier than expected he may now be available before that. It looks like the 30-year-old will be fit to line up against Hoffenheim tomorrow, with City confirming he will fly to Germany with the others. The unfortunate victim of some horrendous injury luck, Pep Guardiola has grown tired of how the Frenchman is spending all his available down time.

De Bruyne's return to first-team duties also comes ahead of their top-of-the-table clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday. "I watched their game at Liverpool and they were very unlucky not to take a point", he said.

The prospect of featuring in pivotal matches would leave Zinchenko somewhat vindicated after he rejected a transfer to Wolves in August in favour of fighting for his place at the Etihad Stadium.

'These two games before the global break will be so important for us.', Guardiola said.

"Mendy is training much better, but I don't know exactly when he will be ready".


Liverpool beat City twice in the Champions League and in the league in January: 'I believe too much in that team, in those guys.

"I know we deserved that point at least so I'm happy with that".

Star playmaker Ilkay Gundogan was the star of the show during Man City's win over Cardiff City last weekend. "No-one expects us to get anything from it, so that's normal and that pressure is taken off, but we want to do as well as we can".

Pep Guardiola's side head into the match having won their last three games.

Pep Guardiola's side have scored eight goals in their last two games, without conceding once, and will be eyeing another comfortable win against the Seagulls. "We are going to try again".
