  • Sergio Aguero is congratulated by teammates after scoring his fourth goal for Manchester City

I think it is important to keep it clear and always have a good focus about our play.

Mahrez is regarded as one of Leicester's key players when they won the title but he has tried to leave the club in the last three transfer windows and some fans took to social media to criticise Puel's decision to play him ahead of young prospect Demarai Gray who was also on the bench.

Riyad Mahrez made his Leicester return after ending his self-imposed exile in protest after the Foxes turned down a transfer deadline day advance by City for the Algerian.

The Algeria global failed to show up at the King Power Stadium after his move to the Etihad Stadium fell through.

Kasper Schmeichel has acknowledged that he can understand the disappointment of Riyad Mahrez after his failed move to Manchester City.

Puel has been pleased with his squad's professional attitude in training amid the ongoing saga with Mahrez.

"I hope he can come back with a good attitude very soon, this is the best solution", said Puel. Their dominance in unrivalled in recent years, but of the four occasions they've dropped points this year, three have come since December 31, so they're not quite in the form they were last time we played.


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola's injury crisis is easing as defender John Stones returns for Saturday's Premier League clash against Leicester, while forwards Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus are closing in on a return to first-team action. He loves to touch the football but he needs to come back right.

City's last 12 home fixtures have ended with more than 2.5 goals.

Mahrez's global coach Rabah Madjer said the player "deserves better than Leicester", but former England striker Chris Sutton was critical of the player's reaction to his move collapsing.

The Belgium worldwide signed a new contract last month which keeps him tied to the club until 2023, and Aguero feels they are lucky to have the former Chelsea and Wolfsburg star to call upon as he feels he would shine at any team in the world. It's hard to resist against this team.

'I want to protect all the squad, it is the most important thing. The second round in the cup was a good game until the lottery of penalties.

In the process he joined Harry Kane, Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer as the fourth player to score more than 20 goals in four successive Premier League seasons.

As we know, Aguero bagged a hat-trick and De Bruyne weighed in with a trio of assists, too.
