Benjamin Mendy Facing Uncertain Future At City

Although it has always been suspected that Guardiola (akin to Jose Mourinho across the city) looks unfavourably upon such behaviour, serious cracks in the relationship between the City boss and Mendy have reportedly appeared this week.

Manchester City have the chance to move into first place in the Premier League if they are able to beat Brighton at the Etihad Stadium today.

De Bruyne will likely be restricted to a watching brief for that encounter, but his return to action may not be too far off as he prepares to provide Guardiola's side with a timely boost in their quest for major silverware across multiple competitions.

Both Mendy's short-term and long-term future remain uncertain with Guardiola angered that he was three hours' late for training last Sunday.

"I want all my players to be focused and when they do that there is no problem at all, when they don't do that they know what happens".

Brighton's only heavy defeat away to a big-six team was 4-0 at Liverpool on the final day of last season and the usual margin of defeat is two goals (five times out of eight, including the FA Cup match). Go to Anfield, win, lose, whatever.

They are a really good side with a good manager and have been together for a long time in the Championship and Premier League. three, four seasons. "I watched their game at Liverpool and they were very unlucky not to take a point", he said. But it is just September, two games before the global break will be so important for us, for the rest of the season.

And after the match, Guardiola said Aguero is not guaranteed to feature in the Champions League against Hoffenheim or at Liverpool next week.

"Now it's Hoffenheim, and after that we are going to prepare, and after that we're going to prepare for Burnley".

"Last season we made 100 points".
