Guardiola keen to resolve Sterling’s Man City future

Man City team news

City boss Pep Guardiola: "We played a high level considering the lack of physical condition for numerous players who arrived back late after the World Cup".

And Guardiola said that they would do their part to convince Sterling to commit his future to City, with the club keen to hold on to him beyond his current deal, which expires in 2020.

Emery analysed his side's 2-0 loss to Pep Guardiola's City on Sunday by admitting the Premier League champions were worthy winners.

Dele Alli's match-winning display for Tottenham at Newcastle on Saturday suggested England players taking their World Cup form back to their clubs and here was further evidence.

Alas, the former Lyon man should have at least hit the target soon after his introduction when he was afforded time and space to let his own touch bounce back down, but his volley drifted well wide of Ederson's goal.

Mendy was involved in both goals, setting up Raheem Sterling and then Bernardo Silva, but that wasn't enough for Guardiola who spoke of his frustration when it comes to the World Cup victor.

"I think he's finding out about his players".

"We are satisfied for many, many reasons". Walker only charged forward sporadically last season, but within the opening 10 minutes at the Emirates he'd received the ball on the overlap three times, causing Maitland-Niles serious problems until the younger's premature departure through injury. "The first game away against Arsenal, nobody can deny that it's complicated".

Keita, though, could be the real difference maker in turning a 25-point deficit to champions Manchester City last season into a title challenge.

And Guardiola twisted the knife by insisting City are still some way from their peak. "I'm a trainer", Guardiola said.

"I am happy with the players because they ran and [showed] fight. They show me on the green stuff (the pitch)". It was a fantastic game for us, so now we have to keep going. People spoke to me when I arrived saying it's like this or like that, but I discovered many things during the process, watching what happens. "The best way to defend it is to be calm".

"We have a lot of players with a lack of condition but we are more than two seasons together and know what to do. After that, we will see".

But while City made inroads down the right, they scored both their goals from the left, and both were assisted by Mendy - in entirely different ways.

The France worldwide missed most of last season with an injury and Guardiola admitted his return is still a work in progress. We wanted to be professional, to make it serious like last season and we did it. And we do count on him. Today is the first step. Meanwhile, a new-look defence was left exposed all match and their ineffective attempts to play out from the back were met with cheers when they reverted to long goal kicks.
