Good for Manchester City: Pep Guardiola reveals injury boost

Frank Lampard has hailed Manchester City as approaching matches better than any other side Frank Lampard has hailed Manchester City as approaching matches better than any other side

"I don't know when he'll be ready definitely to be with us, with the team, but the first step is (to train)".

Benjamin Mendy is the only other player missing, with the defender still recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury.

City face the Latics on Monday evening in the FA Cup, before heading to Wembley the following week to take on Arsenal in the EFL Cup final.

Guardiola is wary of his opponents, who famously stunned City to win the 2013 FA Cup Final and who have knocked out two Premier League clubs in the competition so far. "Of course we will", Cook said. 'I saw the game against Bournemouth - they are one of the teams I like to watch most in the Premier League - and they were able to beat them.

"I think the disappointment is half the joy of winning - because if you can't accept the disappointment, then the enjoyment isn't as enjoyable as it could be". My players must not think of the final next Sunday but think of Monday as a final.

Speaking about his impact against Basel, Guardiola said: "With the ball he was okay".

Some mocks even have Mayfield going first overall to the Cleveland Browns , which has been a quarterback graveyard for almost two decades.

Arsenal have also sold out their allocation, meaning Wembley will be packed to the rafters as Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger duel for the first available piece of silverware this season.

That star man comes in the form of forward Gabriel Jesus who suffered a pretty significant injury at the back end of 2017. "Without the ball not ideal - he has to be involved with and without the ball - but he can do it, we'll give him the passes". He can do it...it's important to have him back'.

City and Liverpool won their round of 16 fixtures away to Basel and FC Porto, while Tottenham drew 2-2 with Juventus in Turin.

"We had a problem one week ago with just three strikers - plus Brahim (Diaz) and Lukas Nmecha, but they are young".

Most consecutive Premier League Manager of the Month Awards: Guardiola equalled Conte's record of three successive manager of the month awards after a ideal November and then went one better when he won the award for a fourth time in December.
