We wait to see if Guardiola sees Sandler as a controlling midfielder in the future.
"Always we try to put water on the grass but it's not necessary here".
The League Cup was the first trophy Guardiola lifted as a manager in England, though he admitted it remained lower on the list of priorities.
De Bruyne was a key player in the side that won the title last term, but injuries have restricted him to six league appearances resulting in City being nine points worse off than they were at the same stage last season. "We are here in the semi-finals and it's one step to go back to Wembley, that's why we take it seriously in that game once we are here", he said.
"We want to cut the field all the 10 years [of his career]". You do the best for the opponent, respect the rules for everybody'.
"They don't compete really and that's why sometimes it's hard to put them [in the team]... that's why they train with us, sometimes they play in the cup, sometimes go on loan, to see how they develop in that position". It's hard for me to choose, but I never give Danilo four or five games in a row.
Comedy of errors: Cathay Pacific sells $16,000 first-class tickets for $675
Singapore Airlines in 2014 and Hong Kong Airlines a year ago honoured business-class tickets mistakenly sold at economy fares. Cathay Pacific Airways Limited has sold its $ 16,000 (Rs. 11,20,240) ticket by mistake for $ 675 (Rs 47253).
"I was working at the game from a VAR perspective and wanted to let you know that from being called out from the stands just before half-time to then take up fourth official duties in a 3rd round FA cup fixture involving the current PL champions in front of 52,000 people with the added factor of a VAR communicating in his ear, Jamie represented himself and the competition professionally and confidently".
However, youngster Phil Foden made it 2-0 for Man City two minutes before the break with a scuffed effort inside the box against the run of play.
Diaz followed the path of Jadon Sancho, who is now pulling up trees at Borussia Dortmund and has gained worldwide recognition after being called up to Gareth Southgate's England squad.
"We wish him all the best".
When he was an academy player at Malaga, Brahim Diaz was a ball-boy for first-team games when Isco was running the show. I said many times, we did with Brahim the same we did with Phil (Foden) and Jadon (Sancho), we did absolutely everything but in the end the only one who decides to stay is Phil so that's all. What we have to do is, the people we believe have a chance to go there, to do everything, in training with us and be with us, and trust with them.
