Pep Guardiola vows Manchester City 'will improve' after the global break

Sane, who was a surprise omission from Germany's World Cup squad in the summer, has hardly featured in City's three league games this season.

When asked whether or not he was happy with Sane's attitude, the former FC Bayern München and Barcelona boss said: "Yes".

Newly-promoted Fulham are a team with plenty of talent, new signing Jean Michaël Seri, who had been linked with City, in particular settling well, but City will be heavy favourites to win that tie on home turf.

"We all know the quality Sane has, his importance in the club, but it's the beginning of the season". Although they were held to a draw by Wolves in their last outing, they beat Arsenal 2-0 at The Emirates and thumped Huddersfield Town 6-1 in their only home game of the new campaign so far. That can be good, although sometimes it can also be bad because you have to take more risks, but we have to do it.

"The other day he had a shot against Wolves which almost hit the corner flag, so it's just a persistence thing", said his fellow defender John Stones.

"To be better is to control, create more chances and concede fewer". In all the games and Community Shield.

Guardiola is convinced the best is yet to come from his side, with the same seemingly true of Liverpool and a Chelsea team still in the early stages of Maurizio Sarri's reign.

"We will improve", he said.

"It's normal with this fantastic squad", said Jesus. "It's impossible after the World Cup mentally for the players to be in the best condition, the best approach".

Whilst at Man City, Rafa kept United in it until the very end, hoping for that moment of inspiration that could have shattered Pep Guardiola's one goal advantage.

"If we score more goals it's a effect of the way we played", Guardiola said. "But two defensive mistakes in five minutes lost the game for us".
