Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is hoping that Riyad Mahrez features for Leicester City today, days after failing to secure a move that would have seen him play for the home side at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola hailed the outstanding quality of Sergio Aguero's finishing after his four goals inspired the Premier League leaders to an emphatic 5-1 victory over Leicester City.

"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. I hope he can come back with a good attitude and prepared to work, but he will need time, and time to be match-fit.

His refusal to train has cost Mahrez a fine of £240 000, but Leicester boss Claude Puel has insisted he will welcome the unsettled midfielder back into his plans. Although there's a clear misunderstanding between the player and club, I don't think there's any denying that Riyad Mahrez is one of, if not the best player the Foxes have available to them. "The best way is to come back and enjoy his football", Puel said.

With 48 minutes gone, and the score level at 1-1, De Bruyne played a give and go with Sterling on the left wing and cut inside.

"He's played a lot of minutes and he deserves some rest but the other side is he's such an important player or us".

"Hopefully we can keep doing the same way".

"Now we have Champions League, and the (Carabao Cup) final, so important games".

The goal also made Vardy the first player to ever score against each of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the same Premier League season.

"In the second half, he scored four goals". We have lost time and now it is important to look forward.

The 26-year-old was said to be quite upset over Leicester's Thai owners rejection of City's proposal of a record KSh 9.4 billion fee, and an unnamed player for Mahrez.

City became interested in the six-time Brazilian global after facing him twice in the group stages of the Champions League.

Since joining the Foxes, Maguire has gone on to win his first England worldwide cap and is expected to be on Gareth Southgate's plane to Russian Federation after asserting himself as one of the Premier League's toughest defenders.
