"He is a special player for us".

He comes to USM Finch Farm every day to work really hard and he is a very good professional, with high quality.

Kevin De Bruyne is poised to make his comeback this afternoon after Pep Guardiola claimed that his injuries may have been a blessing in disguise for the playmaker and Manchester City.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference, Guardiola said of Aguero: "He did the last training session with the team".

Everton had managed to get the game back to 2-1 when Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed home, but City substitute Raheem Sterling restored the two-goal cushion with a header of his own.

Benjamin Mendy has undergone knee surgery for the second time in two seasons, while David Silva, Fernandinho, Sergio Aguero and Danilo have all been on the sidelines of late.

Pep Guardiola praised the way Raheem Sterling has handled a hard week, insisting the Manchester City forward has remained calm.

NYPD searches for fiance who dropped ring in street grate
According to police, the pair had already left the USA , but soon realized that the NYPD had found their missing ring. The NYPD had been looking for the couple since Saturday, after getting the ring out of the grate.


City ceded top spot to Liverpool when they suffered a first Premier League defeat of the season last weekend, meaning De Bruyne's re-introduction would be well-timed. The Spaniard has won just one of his four meetings with the Merseysiders.

With that in mind and given their performances on the road in recent weeks, the 14/1 about an Everton win could well be worth considering, with Marco Silva's attacking options capable of creating chances.

"It is so important for him - strikers need to score goals", Guardiola added.

The Spaniard has not beaten Everton in their previous two clashes at the Etihad Stadium and although Marco Silva's side have won just once away this season, they have impressed, particularly at Anfield when they were only beaten by a stoppage time victor.

"I told our players at half-time we needed to keep our good organisation and at one moment we would take more risks".

"When you have good players in your squad that means other clubs are looking to them as well".

"It will be a tough game after the Champions League". A typical passing move dragged Everton's defence around sufficiently that when Leroy Sané chipped a pin-point cross into the centre onto Jesus's head between Keane and Mina, the Brazilian was able to power a header past Pickford. The people yesterday were so exhausted. No pain, so we will see [if he plays tomorrow].
