Although it has always been suspected that Guardiola (akin to Jose Mourinho across the city) looks unfavourably upon such behaviour, serious cracks in the relationship between the City boss and Mendy have reportedly appeared this week.

The Belgium global sustained a lateral collateral ligament lesion in his right knee in training and has not played since his substitute role in City's 2-0 victory over Arsenal in their first Premier League match of the season. We are controlling, fighting but he needs time.

Guardiola had already been having doubts about Mendy but after the France worldwide showed up late to treatment last Sunday, the City boss is now reportedly considering Mendy's future at the Etihad.

"I know what they did against [Manchester] United, and against Liverpool at Anfield", he said.

'Go to Anfield, win, lose, whatever. "I watched their game at Liverpool and they were very unlucky not to take a point", he said. It's a long time ago Man City was able to win at Anfield.

"Now it's Hoffenheim [on Tuesday in the Champions League], and after that we are going to prepare [for Liverpool], and after that we're going to prepare for Burnley. Now he's injured I hope he recovers well because he's an important player for us", the Portuguese global told reporters.

"We can not forget Aleks [Zinchenko] helped us a lot last season and played really good". We did okay in the Liverpool one and might've got a result there, so you always have to be positive going into games like this.

Guardiola admitted at the weekend that he faces a defining week in his season, after beating Brighton at home on Saturday thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero. "We are going to try again".

"Our positional game was fantastic and we didn't concede much in shots, and we did it so good".
