13 rising stars who could light up the Championship in 2019

The Spain under-21 global was part of Guardiola's first team squad, despite not playing any minutes in the Premier League or Champions League, but the City boss has no plans to sign a replacement.

Imagine turning up to watch Manchester City in the FA Cup against Rotherham United - and getting the call to stand on the touchline next to Pep Guardiola.

Wednesday's League Cup semi-final first leg against League One side Burton is the sort of match in which Diaz might have expected to make one of his rare first-team appearances, and Guardiola admitted it was too soon to say if his team could be short-handed if they continue to progress in several competitions.

Though last Thursday's victory was a huge night for City and their hopes of retaining the Premier League title, they have been distracted by cup competitions since.

"Look at David Silva; he had to go on loan to become member of the first team [early in his career as he went to Eibar and Celta Vigo]". Some have patience, some trust what the club want to do, and some don't.

"Always we try to put water on the pitch, but it's not necessary here because of the weather".

What to expect at this year’s Golden Globe Awards
Two very separate incarnations of British royalty reigned triumphant at the Golden Globes Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday evening. It might be a deliberate homage, or maybe an accident, but people on social media were quick to notice it.

"We thank Jamie for his assistance in the situation, who I am sure did not expect his day to pan out such as it did when he flew from NI that morning!" "If you want to stay it's because you want to stay".

"We have to respect them with the rules".

Asked about Diaz's departure, Guardiola said: "Like I said many times, I don't want people that don't want to stay here". I never speak with the groundsman. I have many issues to think about than that. Phil made a decision to stay.

"We wish him all the best because he's a nice guy but on the other side, again congratulations to the academy and for the club to work so well". Real Madrid is not a bad step, so hopefully he can take the minutes he wants and that he didn't want here for many reasons.

Guardiola, meanwhile has confirmed Benjamin Mendy has returned to training following a knee injury that has sidelined him since mid-November and he could be back in action within two weeks.
