Aguero trains as Mendy sits out Man City session

Having spent five years at Arsenal as a player, Arteta was widely thought to be a candidate to replace the departing Arsene Wenger in the off-season, only for former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery to be given the job.

"In football it's so hard to predict things".

"For me we have the best players in the world and I look at our players as if they are the best", he said. When things happen, you have to make decisions and sometimes you don't have time to make decisions.

Manchester City take on Lyon in their Champions League opener on Wednesday - a game in which Arteta will take charge as Guardiola will not be allowed any contact with the players inside the stadium.

"I am privileged to be where I am".

The Dutchman said: "Everybody knows the story of me and Manchester United was not successful but I'm just happy that I'm the player I am today".

The Steelers made Pat Mahomes look like John Elway last week so we can take nothing for granted when it comes to the pass defense. Winston was handed a three-game ban in June for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy as a result of the alleged incident.


He stated that Real Madrid are still favourite to win this season's Champions League trophy despite losing their all-time highest goalscorer, Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in the summer.

"I dunno, I have to see how I feel". We got brought up in Barcelona with the same mentality and the same philosophy so we clicked together really well.

"My learning here in the last two seasons alongside him has been incredible".

The reason? Guardiola is serving a touchline ban as a result of his sending-off in last season's quarter-final against Liverpool. "I will try to make my best and reduce the impact of not having Pep on the touchline but everything else is absolutely normal".

Arteta also revealed that Sergio Aguero, who was substituted early in the second half of Saturday's 3-0 Premier League win over Fulham with a foot injury, and Benjamin Mendy, who missed the game altogether, would be assessed in Tuesday's training session ahead of the clash with Lyon.
