Guardiola hoping Mahrez makes Leicester return at City

Man City 'write to referees' body following series of bad tackles on players'

The Algeria winger missed Leicester's last two Premier League matches and hasn't been training at the club.

Mahrez could make his Leicester comeback against Manchester City on Saturday - live on Sky Sports - and ahead of that game, Guardiola heaped praise on his goalkeeper Ederson.

"I think Riyad will be not available for the Saturday game against Manchester City", Puel told reporters at his pre-match news conference. David Silva and John Stones are also doubts for the game.

His breathtaking 2015/16 campaign, which saw him register 17 goals and 10 assists as the Foxes claimed a historic first Premier League title, saw him named the PFA Players' Player of the Year as well as becoming a household name and attracting interest from the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Many pundits, including Neville and former England captain Alan Shearer, interpreted Guardiola's decision as a protest against a number of unsafe challenges made on City players during recent matches.

The Catalan coach's decision brought some stinging criticism, particularly from Sky pundit and former Manchester United captain Gary Neville, who believed Guardiola should have offered the chance of a matchday experience on the bench to one of City's many talented academy prospects.

"I hope Riyad can get his head right and to come back with us and to see for him the best way is to come back and enjoy his football". We enjoy watching him and hopefully he'll come back soon with Leicester and play at his level'.

"Riyad is a magnificent player".

"My goals have always been the same and I have always given my full 100 percent when I play for the club the fans and my teammates". They play more between each other, they have more and more passes.

While the focus is now on Saturday's match against Leicester, the Blues have a quick turnaround with a trip to Basel in the Champions League on Tuesday.

"Leicester came to pick up Kelechi [Iheanacho], we did it".

Sergio Aguero is the favourite to score at his best odds of 11/20 at BetVictor.

The Foxes have picked up just one point in their last two games, and it appears that Riyad Mahrez's ongoing strike is influencing their on-pitch performances. Mahrez last played in a 2-0 victory over Watford three weeks ago.

Probability of away win: 5%.
