Pep Guardiola has had words with Benjamin Mendy after the Manchester City defender reported late for treatment on Sunday having posted pictures of himself at the boxing at Wembley the previous night.

Guardiola, talking ahead of City's home Premier League game with Brighton on Saturday, refused to divulge whether promising young midfielder Phil Foden will start in the game after impressing on a rare start against Oxford in the League Cup in midweek.

And, much to Guardiola's frustration, the City manager admitted Mendy, who has played just 13 games for the club since joining from Monaco past year, arrived late for treatment and training on Sunday. "I spoke with him", Guardiola told reporters on Friday (Sept 28).

Manchester City's all time leading goal scorer Sergio AGUERO added one more to his City tally as they managed a 2-0 win against Brighton.

"He was injured six seven months last season".
