WHAT HAPPENED? Guardiola has offered an update on Stones and confirmed he will miss the next month after sustaining a hamstring injury against Arsenal. The Manchester City boss also spoke about Foden and confirmed the England international is fit after a foot problem and could return next time out.

WHAT THEY SAID: "[Stones] is three weeks, one month [out]," he told reporters. "Unfortunately, a lot of games. Managers complain about a lot of games. Comes from World Cup. A few weeks he will be back."

Guardiola was then asked if Foden would be available for Sunday's Premier League match against Tottenham. "Yes I think so. He has trained well these last two days."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Guardiola has issues in defence with Stones missing and Joao Cancelo having completed a loan move to Bayern Munich. Man City also have a poor record against Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Citizens have lost on all three visits and have yet to score at the north Londoners' new home.
