Transfer News LIVE Manchester United have been boosted in their pursuit of Gareth Bale

If Pep decides to rest his entire midfield and leave Fernandinho on the bench, then there's a good chance that Phil Foden makes his first start for Manchester City.

But the Spurs boss appears to have little use for Rose, who's now warming the bench and there's no reason the London club won't want to cash in on the 27-year-old.

For large periods on Sunday, however, City were frustrated by an organised West Ham but their sheer will to win proved too much for the Hammers as Guardiola's side restored their comfortable lead ahead of next weekend's Manchester derby.

"He was uncomfortable in the last minutes after the goal", Guardiola told a news conference on Tuesday.

Having taken his entire available squad, besides the suspended Kevin De Bruyne and injured David Silva, it isn't clear just how strong of a starting eleven the City boss will field. He's injured but he will play for sure. That is why we are so happy - every game is so tough and it is important to keep our momentum.

Pep Guardiola said in his pre-match presser that he wants his team to win this game, but that doesn't mean he'll go with a really strong team.

For players like me and Vinnie (Kompany), the older players, and we see the younger players like Sane and Sterling coming in. we play with more confidence.

"I'm not the luckiest guy with draws, so it's better I shut up and forget it because we only play in February and until then I have to concentrate on the English competitions", he said.

Fernandes has played a bit-part role for West Ham thus far, but that is surely about to change, raising more questions over the long-term future of Noble at the London Stadium. He's won 61, drawn 23 and lost 15 of his previous 99 games, lifting the trophy on two occasions with Barcelona (2009, 2011). We had two strikers in the second half and that helped, it was a big lesson for me.

Unsurprisingly, ever since then, he's found first-team football hard to come by and has even been left out of matchday squads by Mauricio Pochettino.

Although CSKA dropped into the Europa League after Basel beat Benfica to join United in the last 16, the Russian side's manager Viktor Goncharenko said the Champions League campaign would serve his players well.
