We are there, but the focus now is who the next one is, which competition and then try to do our job. "Morgan Gibbs-White has also played in that free role, so it will be interesting to see which Nuno deploys as he tends to flit between the two".

"I hope towards the end of the season we get a title run-in", said the former Manchester United and England captain in the Gary Neville podcast.

"Ruben Neves is an excellent player", said Guardiola, whose second-placed side will be looking to cut Liverpool's seven-point lead at the top of the table.

However, Guardiola says he does not know if the player is angry with him or not, as De Bruyne has not sought a conversation with him about the incident. "I know exactly what they do, with the (City) academy, with the first team and they are doing it really well". "He knows the Premier League, after three years together here, he knows everything and that's so important".

City have been linked with a move for Frenkie de Jong from Ajax at the end of this season, but the Dutch midfielder is attracting significant interest from other clubs too.

"You have to pay the club, pay the family and talk with the players, and with the agents, it's nuts. If you don't have injuries and you are satisfied with the squad, it's going well, we will play with the players we have started the season with".

Pep: Gundogan could be future Ferna successor: Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on Ilkay Gundogan. Our performance against the smaller teams has to be better now, we know that.

"There are many clubs in the world, many holding midfielders in the world, and a lot of them can play here". He has the quality and the vision to pass.

Wolves will head to the Etihad Stadium knowing that they were one of few teams to stop the Citizens scoring there last season, when the two sides met in a Carabao Cup tie, one which Pep Guardiola's men eventually won on penalty kicks after a goalless draw. When he's close to the box he arrives in the right tempo and the right moment to score a goal.

"I didn't speak with him so that one time I can not say what he thinks because I don't know", said Guardiola.
