Riyad Mahrez will return to Leicester City training on Friday

Riyad Mahrez will return to Leicester City training on Friday

As well as Sane, Guardiola was missing Gabriel Jesus, David Silva, John Stones, Benjamin Mendy and Fabian Delph for the trip to Turf Moor.

Guardiola, meanwhile, said that City should not bear any responsibility for Riyad Mahrez's fallout with Leicester after a move to the Etihad Stadium fell through in late January.

Forward Shinji Okazaki faces a two-week absence with a knee injury.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola dismissed former Manchester United captain Gary Neville's fleeting coaching career and sarcastically labelled him a "prestigious pundit" in response to criticism from the Sky Sports analyst.

Numerous player's teammates were reportedly upset with how Mahrez handled the situation, as well as a certain Guardiola.

"It's been a no-win situation for all - as for away teams at the Etihad since December 2016".

"I think Riyad [Mahrez] will be not available for Saturday's game at Manchester City", he told reporters, according to the Daily Mirror.

"I hope Riyad can get his head right and come back with us. The best way is to come back and enjoy his football", Puel said. He loves his relationship with his friends and team mates. Manchester City dropped a couple of points against Burnley last week, but normal service should resume here.

And the Foxes coach has called on the Algeria worldwide who is set to miss out on the trip to the Etihad Stadium - his third consecutive game - to return to the club. They play more between each other, they have more and more passes.

"Leicester came to pick up Kelechi [Iheanacho], we did it".

The Foxes could lose three consecutive league matches in this fixture for the first time since August 1961.

And the Foxes have struggled without their star man, losing 2-1 at Everton before failing to beat struggling Swansea City 1-1 at home last weekend.

Here's how Puel's side could line up against the league leaders...

Sergio Aguero is the favourite to score at his best odds of 11/20 at BetVictor.

To show if we have improved from our last game against this team. When he concedes a goal he is quiet.

Vardy has scored an unrivalled 22 Premier League goals in 42 appearances against the current top six clubs since his top-flight debut in August 2014. Danny Simpson is expected to keep his place on the right.
