KDB's return won't be so soon and he will also miss this weekend's Liverpool game, but with an worldwide break coming up, it isn't out of the question that we could see him get minutes against Burnley later this month.

The Belgian global was pivotal last season as they won the Premier League and EFL Cup, contributing 12 goals to Pep Guardiola's side.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has blasted Benjamin Mendy over his poor time-keeping. The France global has also been criticised for his social media use and has taken a break since being pictured at Anthony Joshua's fight in London last Saturday night, hours before his late appearance. "He has not recovered from what happened against Newcastle and we spoke about playing about 60 minutes and we were lucky he scored at the right moment".

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

Pep Guardiola also heaped praise on Oleksandr Zinchenko after the Ukrainian turned in his second impressive display inside five days.

"They [players] know that they have to be here on time".


"He was injured six or seven months last season".

"They did very well, they are a great team, they have been together for several years, they know each other very well and what they have to do".

"People maybe did not expect him to play today - but he played really well in the last game and deserved to play again".

Sterling broke the deadlock after 29 minutes, sliding home Leroy Sane's cross after a swift counter-attack opened up the Seagulls defence for the first time.

"The way he arrives in the box, his desire. he was so clever with the assist". It was another good performance for him. He will be important for us. "Every day he's having treatment", he said.

"I want all of my players to be focused".
