‘Exceptional’ Foden, key to Man City future - Guardiola

Tottenham have qualified for three consecutive Champions League seasons while generating less income than rivals for the Premier League's top four places.

The Argentina worldwide, who is the Premier League's top scorer with 19 goals, missed City's 2-0 victory over relegation-threatened Cardiff City on Wednesday and was a doubt for Saturday's semi-final at Wembley.

Get closer to the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez, Benjamin Mendy and the rest of Pep Guardiola's team.

"To attract one of world rugby's biggest club sides will bring a new audience to the area, as well as help drive significant socio-economic benefits for businesses and local people, as we continue to underline our commitment to the regeneration of north Tottenham".

"Sergio is going to play when he's really, really fit", Guardiola added.

"It happened in Germany, I went there the year after Jupp Heynckes got it. I believe if we can do what we always do, we can make a good result".

The Manchester City midfielder, who has battled back from two separate knee injuries and a hamstring niggle this season, warned fans he may not be able to hit the heights of last season. "I want to play at my best level but I won't compare myself to past year when I played 70 games and was on such a roll".

With six games to go - Arsenal have an extra match to play - all four clubs are also still involved in European competition as the run-in gathers pace. "I did it and I'm happy I'm back". They are obviously a great team with a lot of great players.

"They are old enough to know what they have to do, I'm not his father", said Guardiola when asked if he was angered by Mendy's late night. He said: 'Of course when we are playing we want young players and also English players because we are in England, but we also have Willian, Pedro, me - we have not only two wingers, we have four - but his time is coming.

The Seagulls have endured a tough season, now sitting 15th in the league despite continued glimpses of success under Chris Houghton since their promotion - but their FA Cup run promises to form an enduring memory for the seaside club.
