Man City boss Guardiola furious with Mendy: He should be here

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

Pep Guardiola lauded Oleksandr Zinchenko as "absolutely brilliant" in Manchester City's 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion, partially easing the Premier League champions' left-back woes ahead of a vital week.

Guardiola, talking ahead of City's home Premier League game with Brighton on Saturday, refused to divulge whether promising young midfielder Phil Foden will start in the game after impressing on a rare start against Oxford in the League Cup in midweek. We are controlling, fighting but he needs time.

"I believe too much in that team, in those guys", he said.

According to a UK Sun report, the Frenchman was among the 80,000 fans that watched the Anthony Joshua fight at Wembley on Saturday night, suggesting the defender attended his appointment at the City Football Academy late the following day.

The Belgium worldwide, who starred for his country at World Cup 2018 as they secured a third-place finish in Russian Federation, suffered an untimely injury in training.

Both sides are level on points with 19 from their first seven games, but City have lost the last three times they have played Jurgen Klopp's men and have not won at Anfield in over 15 years.

But the 27-year-old did not require surgery and has returned before City face Hoffenheim in the Champions League on Tuesday. Now we have two games left before the worldwide break.

"Sometimes you have the feeling with Leroy's body language that it is all the same whether we win or lose".

Each of Brighton's last five matches have been either draws or decided by one goal.

KDB's return won't be so soon and he will also miss this weekend's Liverpool game, but with an global break coming up, it isn't out of the question that we could see him get minutes against Burnley later this month. At the end, we're going to see what happened at the end of the season'. "We are going to try again".
