He went on to have an influential role in Guardiola's side for the rest of the campaign but now finds himself back on the sidelines and frozen out again.

'It is between him and me. 'I demand as much as possible.

Guardiola said: "I want more, not just from Yaya but from everyone".

In a message to City Watch and others, Seluk claimed that Yaya is in 'great shape' and fit to play, adding that it is up to Guardiola to decide. He knows the reason.

Pep Guardiola hailed Kevin De Bruyne as "one of the best players" he has ever seen after another masterful midfield performance from the Belgian. Hopefully he'll play soon but it depends on him'.

Winning the title in 2013-14, Manuel Pellegrini was unable to repeat his success in the two following years, losing out to both José Mourinho's Chelsea and Claudio Ranieri's unexpected Leicester City before the announcement in January he would be replaced by Guardiola.

"The delivery is so good from Kevin". 'That is the difference'. 'Why can't you win today and in three days' time?

"Yaya is in great shape".

"He just wants to be around the team and be in that environment".

Toure and Guardiola worked together briefly at Barcelona, but only for the 2009-10 season. "We are so proud and so happy he is with us". One thing [they need] is belief'.

Guardiola will make a decision on the fitness of goalkeeper Ederson on the day of the game. The Brazilian wore a scrum cap over injuries sustained when Liverpool's Sadio Mane put a boot into the side of his head on Saturday - as he travelled with the squad.

Guardiola said: 'Yaya was so important last season. 'I could understand that feeling, ' he said.

City arrive at a club whose own net summer spend was £24m and who are without 26-year-old striker Nicolai Jorgensen, the Dutch league's top scorer last season.

Sources have told ESPN FC the player remains relaxed about the latest development and he was not expecting to feature in every game.
