Guardiola: If De Bruyne has a problem, he knows where I am

Guardiola says that City are at a disadvantage when compared to Europe's biggest clubs, like Barcelona and Real Madrid.

"Maybe there aren't many, but there are players who can play in that role". "If you don't have injuries and you are satisfied with the squad, it's going well, we will play with the players we have started the season with".

Wanderers go into this match off the back of a solid win over Liverpool in the FA Cup last week, and having already held Man City in the Premier League this season, they will head up the M6 high in confidence.

Guardiola said he had not spoken to Kevin De Bruyne after the Belgium worldwide went straight down the tunnel after being substituted in the 9-0 Carabao Cup thrashing of Burton Albion.

Neves has two goals and one assist in 19 Premier League games for Wolves this season.

"I didn't speak with him so that one time I can not say what he thinks because I don't know".

In any case, Guardiola has intimated he is not sure if Neves, who City will face when Wolves visit the Etihad Stadium on Monday, would fit into his preferred system.

"Sergio right after game against Liverpool he was sick", Pep said. "He's a little bit better".

And de Jong is reportedly on the radar as the ideal replacement; with Tottenham willing to spend a club-record fee on the young Dutchman from the substantial fee they would hope to recoup for Eriksen.

The manager said City would do everything they can to help Gabriel Jesus after close relatives including his mother, Vera Lucia Diniz de Jesus, returned to Brazil.

"Ruben Neves is an excellent player", said Guardiola, whose second-placed side will be looking to cut Liverpool's seven-point lead at the top of the table.

"But of course we cannot substitute the mother and, when the family can't be there, it's hard. I think it won't be a problem for the next months".
