Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated Riyad Mahrez has recovered from the discomfort he felt in their 4-0 FA Cup fourth-round win over Fulham on Sunday.

The 28-year old was in evident pain when he was subject to a rash tackle by Joe Bryan.

As a precaution, Guardiola substituted Mahrez and on came Raheem Sterling in his place.

Joao Cancelo was the other City player to feel discomfort late in the game in his ankle.

"Riyad recovered well from his kick and Joao Cancelo had a big kick with some injury on his ankle," Guardiola told the press after the game.

"We will see how they recover in the next days."

City take on rivals Manchester United next in the second leg of the EFL Cup semi-finals on Wednesday. They hold a comfortable 3-1 away win from the first leg.
