“Everyone at City wishes Aymeric a full and speedy recovery.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Pep Guardiola will now have to contend in the title race against Liverpool with just Nicolas Otamendi as a fit and natural center-back.

                                                                                                                                                                                                     

John Stones is also injured and the Spaniard could turn to Fernandinho moving forward, with the Brazilian playing out of position once Laporte came off on Saturday.

“He is a holding midfielder, everyone knows it, me included but I think he has the conditions to play there,” said Guardiola.

                                                                                                                     

“The problems we have there as a situation, he is going to adapt. He is intelligent, fast, strong in the headers, in the build-up, he has the quality to see what happens in front. He can play in both positions. ”
