Pep’s Presser: Defender to miss Everton game, Aguero update, difficult fixtures ahead

Manchester City are finally back in action on Saturday when they visit Goodison Park, and a win would mean they will have beaten each of the other 19 teams this season – something only two other teams have ever done in the Premier League era.

Ahead of the trip to Everton, Pep Guardiola addressed the local and international media at the CFA this afternoon.

On the injury front, Pep said everyone is pretty much good to go except John Stones, who feels fine but rules state he must sit it out after suffering a concussion on international duty.

“Apart from John Stones – who had a concussion, he feels really good but the rules say he needs seven days off, [so he’s out] – everybody is really good,” the City boss told the press.

When asked about Kun Aguero, who famed source Jose Alvarez said earlier will miss the game, Pep didn’t completely rule the Argentine out, but did say a decision would come late.

“Sergio is much much better but we will see tomorrow if he will be involved.”

City are very close to the Premier League title and it has been a much better season for Pep than his debut year in England, but he’s remaining focused.

“Of course, this season is much much better than the last season by far in terms of results and progress in the tournament but tomorrow we start from 0-0 and go again.”

Pep warned that the difficult fixtures coming up mean that the league isn’t done yet.

“We are almost there, we are in an ideal situation but it isn’t done. Especially in this league.

“Goodison Park is a good ground and of course the Derby will be very very difficult and we all know how good Spurs are at Wembley so it is not done.”
