Kevin De Bruyne was out for Manchester City for the whole of last month and Guardiola is hoping that his return will be of great advantage for the club.

Guardiola explained that the rest of his players are okay except Nathan Ake.

“Gundo is much better but I don't think he will be available for tomorrow. The rest of the players are okay except Nathan Ake.
“Sergio has been injured for a year, so cannot start from the beginning but is ready to come back. He was on the bench for the last game and will be again. When he can return he will do.”
