Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola hope key defender Aymeric Laporte could be back in full soon after the French has been ruled out since fourth game of the season with a knee ligament injury.

He is getting better. He is training alone but already on the pitch and I think, yeah, it is the last part.I think in one week or maybe ten days be can come back and can start to train with us.” I miss all the players that are injured. I like to have all the squad available and training with us. I don’t like to see players injured. They are back.”

Aymeric Laporte absence has left the club with defence disorganization over the last few months and has been blamed for them slipping out of the title race. The domestic cups and the Champions League are now likely to make or break City’s season – and getting Laporte back will be a huge bonus.
