Yaya knows why - Guardiola tight-lipped on Toure absence for Manchester City

Ederson in contention after swift recovery

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva says that the club face a tough task in trying to win the Champions League this season.

However, asked if he felt his side were capable of winning the Champions League this season, Guardiola refused to get carried away. It's a sporting decision.

City's impressive start to the new season, which has seen them take 10 points from a possible 12, has seen them described as favourites for the Premier League title by a number of pundits. Six players finished their contracts last season and Yaya is the only player who we decided could stay because he is a special player.

"But the decision is he didn't play the last game, and today he is not in the squad and he knows the reason why". "Hopefully he'll play soon, but it depends on him".

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes is back in preparing in the wake of influencing a fast recuperation from his kick to the face in Saturday's 5-0 to prevail upon Liverpool, report by ESPNFC.

Captain Vincent Kompany will miss out for City once more due to his latest calf injury setback.

Guardiola said: "Ederson is here, with protection". I have to speak with him. He is much better.

He said: "Tomorrow we play our first game in the group stage".

Guardiola, a two-time victor as a coach with Barcelona, made clear there is no room for complacency in a Group F campaign that begins with the Dutch champions and also features Napoli and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Yaya Toure is facing another battle to save his Manchester City career.

Guardiola will be boosted by the return of Raheem Sterling who was suspended against Liverpool but is available in the Champions League, but the coach will be without the injured Vincent Kompany and goalkeeper Éderson, who's still not ready to come back after that insane clash with Sadio Mané on Saturday.

"We fought a lot to be there". I don't know when, but he'll be back soon.
