'Everybody wants it': Pep Guardiola on how to win the Champions League

Guardiola felt Sane's performances in pre-season training were sub-standard but, amid suggestions of a him being unhappy with the winger's attitude, the City manager told BT Sport there was no need for alarm and later claimed to be "sad" for the player at his post-match news conference.

However, speaking after the Newcastle win, the City boss offered an explanation for Sane's omission.

"The last game, Phil Foden was not in the squad. We try to work hard again and the next game we will be ready to play again".

September will see Manchester City play a total of six games, but we now have to wait two weeks until Fulham visit the Etihad Stadium due to the worldwide break. Yet it has not been an entirely straightforward start, with last season's player of the year Kevin de Bruyne suffering a long-term knee injury and City dropping points in a 1-1 draw at Wolves last weekend. He was not precise but he tried. It's lazy defending from City, they fail to pick up the run of the Newcastle midfielder as he makes a late surge into the box to poke home Rondon's cross. "Mistakes without the ball, taking decisions is part of the process".

The pastor said in statement: "It is my goal and my aim to ensure that people leave here with some kind of spiritual awakening. An arrangement from singer Sam Moore included a card that read , "You know I always adored and loved you to bits and pieces".

City weren't at their best.

City needed a superb long-range strike from Sterling's England team-mate Kyle Walker to seal victory after DeAndre Yedlin sent Newcastle in level at the break.

We have many and we have to take those decisions for the way the opponents play and what I see every day.

The hosts pushed for more goals as the half went on but they were finding it tough to get past Martin Dúbravka, who pulled off some impressive saves. "So far I am so delighted with the guys".
