Guardiola explained that it will be a serious problem for his side to cope without Raheem Sterling, but added that they will try to focus in his absence.

The Citizens have played 25 English topflight games this season in which Raheem Sterling has only missed two games.

Awesome news for the Citizens now is that German football star Leroy Sane has started training and Pep Guardiola will hope he gets fit soon so as to be drafted in to the first team.

Since August 4 last year when Leroy Sane suffered a serious injury in the Community Shield against Liverpool, he has not played since then.

Meanwhile, the Citizens are currently occupying second position on the Premier League standings and they are 22 points behind leaders Liverpool.

The Reds have been tipped to win this season's Premier League title, and they can even be confirmed as champions by the end of March.
