De Bruyne is set for an extended spell in the treatment room after a serious ankle injury but Guardiola says he will return to training next week.

The French full-back moved to City from Monaco for a fee of £52 million last summer but missed the majority of his debut season in England with a cruciate ligament injury.

More specifically, Brighton have lost all seven away games against the big six since joining the Premier League and their only goal in those matches came in last season's 3-1 defeat against City.

Although reservations remain over the Ukraine international's defensive capabilities, Guardiola gave the 21-year-old a vote of confidence, impressed with his display on Saturday.

Guardiola said: "I believe too much in that team, in those guys". The France worldwide has also been criticised for his social media use and has taken a break since being pictured at Anthony Joshua's fight in London last Saturday night, hours before his late appearance.


And their fans were relaxed enough for a cheeky chant of "Jose Mourinho.we want you stay" in a dig at rivals Manchester United.

"Most of the time we are playing even better than last season", said Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola's men had to be patient before Sterling claimed his fourth goal of the season shortly before the half hour.

Liverpool face Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday before looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season against City. "He should be here and he knows it", Guardiola confirmed before lamenting Manchester's roadworks.

"Take our game with Oxford in the Carabao Cup How did we play?" But it is just September, two games before the global break will be so important for us, for the rest of the season. After the dribble, no dribble, good assist, no assist. he will improve. "Every day he's having treatment", he said. "When they don't do that, after that they know what happens".
