No timeline on Vincent Kompany return from injury - Pep Guardiola

Predicted Burnley XI v Man City Predicted Burnley XI v Man City

"But the game against Napoli he was ready and of course he is ready for tomorrow against Burnley". "I think the game against Stoke it was just one training session".

"Going to Chelsea for the first game, against the champions, is tough, but this is arguably as tough as it gets against a team arguably the most fluid team in Europe at the moment". Last season we dropped a lot of points at home in the Premier League but this season we've been scoring goals.

But while the Clarets have a formidable record away from home - they have played Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton and taken eight points - Guardiola knows he has quality options, particularly in midfield and attack, and he has often talked about keeping his players fresh.

Burnley are yet to lose while Nick Pope has played in goal, while Sean Dyche's men are now on a six-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League. They'll most probably need to defend again this weekend but Dyche's side have nothing to lose and have already gained so much.

Chris Wood has scored in four of his last seven games for Burnley in all competitions.

"It's complicated to attack them because they are physically strong".

Nahki Wells and Dean Marney are recovering from long-term injuries and are unlikely to feature.

Instead, the 32-year-old pop star's Saturn prop got stuck mid-air with the singer seated on the planet. I love this so much, This is what you get for trying to bring out all of space to Nashville.

Sergio Aguero was an unused substitute on Tuesday and is in contention to start.

With no new injury concerns, Dyche could well be tempted to use the same starting eleven for a fifth consecutive game that has been serving him so well.

While Guardiola is not often mentioned in the same breath as the phrase "mind games", this compliment is so great that it makes you wonder what motivated the Catalan to lavish this praise on an undoubtedly good side.

Gabriel Jesus has been involved in 10 goals in nine Premier League games at the Etihad Stadium (eight goals and two assists). He could have played but was not completely fit.

Meanwhile, Sean Dyche's Clarets head to the Etihad Stadium having put on a number of eye-catching performances on the road so far this season. They also drew with Tottenham at Wembley. It's their tightly rehearsed organisation which will prove the biggest problem for City though, a team who have found goals easy to come by of late.

They sit two points clear of second-place Manchester United, who travel to Huddersfield hoping new signing Romelu Lukaku will end a run of 17 matches without a goal against newly-promoted sides.
