  • Compassionate Pep welcomes Silva back into City squad for trip to Stoke

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has urged more English players to test themselves overseas and experience football in other countries, arguing that it will have a beneficial effect on the national team as has been the case with Spain in the past.

While speaking to the British press ahead of the midnight showdown, Guardiola lamented the jinx that have befallen them on midnight fixtures making them to drop points in the current season. There's no doubt that most of his star players will come back into the squad after missing the Basle game. "I have bad experiences playing games on Mondays".

Paul Lambert has certainly patched Stoke's badly leaking defence since taking over from Mark Hughes and a victory and four draws from six games is a very creditable return in theory.

"I think when Sir Alex rebuilt the club it was because he was six or seven years with the same people and after six or seven years and then after do it again. We have to have an idea of another way to try to beat them", he said.


Manchester City's Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero during training at the City Football Academy in Manchester March 6, 2018.

Fortunately for Guardiola, Gabriel Jesus has recently returned from his own injury layoff and will provide cover in the Argentinean's absence.

A knee injury sidelined Aguero but Silva stepped up to the plate away from home, scoring in either half to leave Stoke a point adrift of safety. "Now it's time for a full recovery!" He slid the ball home from 12 yards after Raheem Sterling had curled a handsome ball across the box.

The Senegalese has joined Lee Grant (wrist) and Stephen Ireland (calf), but the striker is the only pressing injury concern. Their first matchup this season saw the Blues absolutely destroy Stoke and win 7-2 in what was Pep Guardiola's most lopsided victory in England. However such as score would be unrealistic this time. If he gets another one, Man City will become only the third team to have three players reach double figures for assists in a single Premier League campaign, after Liverpool in 1995-96 and Arsenal in 2004-05. Nonetheless, Manchester City have the upper hand to win this game given their good form. Under Lambert, the Potters have been better defensively. "Knowing City's nearly comical capacity for failure, they will probably win only for Port Vale and Portsmouth to do likewise", wrote the anonymous preview writer in the Sunday Telegraph. Their distribution has been simply sensational since Guardiola took charge, now connecting with 733.2 passes per game, some 108 more than any other side.
