Guardiola, talking ahead of City's home Premier League game with Brighton on Saturday, refused to divulge whether promising young midfielder Phil Foden will start in the game after impressing on a rare start against Oxford in the League Cup in midweek.

De Bruyne will likely be restricted to a watching brief for that encounter, but his return to action may not be too far off as he prepares to provide Guardiola's side with a timely boost in their quest for major silverware across multiple competitions.

First-choice left-sided defender Benjamin Mendy has been struggling with a bruised metatarsal, although there are also reports Guardiola banished him from training last week after becoming exasperated with his attitude.

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

The Belgian worldwide was pivotal last season as they won the Premier League and EFL Cup, contributing 12 goals to Pep Guardiola's side.

Despite De Bruyne's absence City have been as strong as ever collecting 19 points from their first seven games to see them placed joint-top of the table.

PM Netanyahu Meets with US President Donald Trump in NY
And Trump's claim comes amid an escalation of tensions between Washington and Beijing, spurred by their growing trade dispute. China retaliated with equal tariffs on $ 34 billion in USA goods, including on soybeans, wheat, corn, sorghum and beef.

Star playmaker Ilkay Gundogan was the star of the show during Man City's win over Cardiff City last weekend.

"You see it - the way we focus on every single ball", he said.

Pep Guardiola's side have scored eight goals in their last two games, without conceding once, and will be eyeing another comfortable win against the Seagulls.

The prospect of featuring in pivotal matches would leave Zinchenko somewhat vindicated after he rejected a transfer to Wolves in August in favour of fighting for his place at the Etihad Stadium.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton on playing Manchester City: "Along with playing Liverpool away, I would say that this is the toughest game. That's what happened. We were lucky he scored a goal in that moment".

"Now it's Hoffenheim, and after that we are going to prepare, and after that we're going to prepare for Burnley".
