Cardiff City v Manchester City

Cardiff City v Manchester City

"He's happy", said Guardiola at his press conference on the eve of their league match with Cardiff.

The Frenchman has missed the past two games and has been ruled out for an indefinite period with a bruised metatarsal.

Kevin de Bruyne, Eliaquim Mangala, Danilo and Claudio Bravo remain out.

'So I would say which is the worst? Not just Cardiff. I realised that when I arrived.

The 27-year-old - who had a fine World Cup as Belgium lost to eventual champions France in the semi-finals - himself predicts he will be fit to return for the first Manchester derby of the season on November 11, although Guardiola refused to confirm that.

The 30-year-old has scored three goals in six appearances this season and has drawn praise from Pep Guardiola for his all-round game, an area the manager has been keen for Agüero to improve.

I'd expect something similar this time, with Cardiff clattering into them in the nicest possible way and making things as hard as possible for them.

"I understand when you take that decision - it happened in Barcelona many times - I always know the reaction [will be bad] when the result is not good, but I have to take decisions".

He fired back: 'I'm not going to play that game.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until June 2021.

Visitors Lyon won the game 2-1 in a surprise upset against the Premier League champions.

"I still need three, four, five weeks, but I'm getting there", De Bruyne said at the launch of FIFA 19. I'm very happy about everything that involves the Club, my teammates, the staff and the management team.
