Man City boss Guardiola casts fresh doubt over Kompany future

Man City boss Guardiola casts fresh doubt over Kompany future

Benjamin Mendy is recovering from a serious knee problem and will not return before April while John Stones has a pulled hamstring and is unlikely to play before the new year.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has cast fresh doubt over the future of skipper Vincent Kompany. "In that department we have too few players and to handle all competitions we are in trouble, real trouble if this is the case".

"He can't play at Swansea but I think it is less than we expect", the Catalan said. But I can't assure anything.

"With the club, with [director of football] Txiki [Begiristain], we are going to see what we do in January".

Meanwhile, John Stones has once again been left out of the squad.

Bernardo Silva played well in his cameo at Old Trafford (despite missing the chance to add gloss to the scoreline with a one-on-one with De Gea) and may also get a start and Yaya Toure will also be hoping for some minutes. "But exactly? I don't know".

He did not provide details about when those communications took place, who was involved, or what exactly Grassley said. A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment.

"I don't know how our condition will be, our injured players or the Basel players".

"He has a quality that our other central defenders don't have and in some games he is going to help us". "After we scored, I thought Zlatan Ibrahimovic would come in, so I chose to put Mangala in front, and pulled a striker out [Gabriel Jesus] because I wanted one more man in the middle to make more passes".

The Blues go into the game against Paul Clement's men on the back of the morale boosting 2-1 victory over Manchester United.

Mangala was introduced as a second-half substitute at Old Trafford and Guardiola believes the physical strength of the France worldwide will be an asset, although he was previously close to leaving the club. It's impossible to achieve [City's record-equalling] 14 league wins in a row just by playing football.

"Until now we have been able to show we can do things on the European stage, but that is in the past", said Guardiola.

"After we scored a goal I thought [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic is going to come on so I chose to put Mangala on and take off a striker because I wanted more control in the middle".
