But the club have now announced that Mahrez is back training, saying in a statement: "Riyad Mahrez has today (Friday) returned to training with the Leicester City squad".

Most of the prematch headlines were made by Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez, who was back on the bench after ending more than a week of self-imposed exile following the collapse of a move to City.

On Thursday, Foxes boss Claude Puel said Mahrez would not be selected for Saturday's trip to Manchester City.

"If you're the academy or reserve team manager at Manchester City you must think "I'm wasting my time".

Given the fact City have lost just one game all season, it seems the title could be wrapped up by April and right under their noses of their closest rivals.

Sergio Aguero scored four second-half goals as Manchester City thumped Leicester to move 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

But despite the prospect of banking a lower fee by selling Mahrez to a European club, Leicester are reluctant to allow Mahrez to join a Premier League rival and efforts will be made to find a buyer in Spain, Italy, France or Germany if the player can not be persuaded to remain at the club.

If not for Leicester's haphazard defending in the second half, their attackers might have given City a run for their money.

Kevin De Bruyne had said he was exhausted during the 1-1 draw with Burnley and Guardiola says he hopes to give him more time off if he can get some players back from injuries. Congratulations to him because it's not easy to score four goals.

"We had that day a training session at 4 the afternoon, at the same time five or six of the players I could have taken, had a game here", Guardiola told a news conference.

"Kevin is an unbelievable player so it's good that he's playing with us", Aguero told Sky Sports. They play more between each other, they have more and more passes.

"We must forget this result and have a good focus now on the Premier League".

"He's a great player and every team in the world would love to have him". "The best way is to come back and enjoy his football", Puel said.
