Manchester City's Leroy Sane ready despite lack of game time - Pep Guardiola

Manchester City's Leroy Sane ready despite lack of game time - Pep Guardiola”

Most judges believe Pep Guardiola's stars are the team to beat over the course of this Premier League campaign, so the Molineux outfit are going to need to be at their best to get anything from this match.

Despite winning the first two games of the league season, Guardiola admitted he was concerned about the lack of pre-season preparation for a number of players involved at the World Cup in the summer. He arrived late and now he is getting back like Leroy is.

For Wolves coach Nuno, a point was a welcome reward for a courageous display of intense pressing and attacking intent, albeit his side rode their luck to claim their second draw of the season. "But I have never complained about Leroy's behaviour in the training sessions or matches". We're not in the best condition.

"I think we played to win the game".

'He came back, he was in the [United] States and made pre-season and stayed there and took a little bit more time to settle and now he is ready.

Midfielder Fernandinho is a doubt, despite recovering from a minor knock, but Kevin De Bruyne is out for the next three months. "We trust Aro, no doubts about that".

"The problem for us is we are not far away but we are still not fit", Guardiola said.

So it is in these games that Liverpool need to continue to raise their game like they do for the games against City, United, Spurs and Chelsea when results don't seem to be as hard to achieve.

'In the last game, Raz [Raheem Sterling] didn't play as he was in a tough, tough game against Arsenal when he was outstanding. "We had enough chances so we need to be more ruthless but as defenders we have to take responsibility for their goal". We have played two games and the competition has just started.

Teams like Burnley, Swansea, Watford, Hull and Everton have proved incredibly resolute and frustrating in the last few seasons, and have prevented Liverpool from breaking them down in the way that we are so accustomed to seeing the Reds do.

Manager Pep Guardiola felt his side had been let down by fragile defending but reckoned it was still a good point against a team that had demonstrated why they could still thrive in the top flight.
