Aguero named in Man City squad for Wembley showdown with Brighton

Pep Guardiola celebrates after the win at Fulham

But that doesn't mean that they will win all their games.

"Sergio is going to play when he's really fit - the doctors are going to tell me", Guardiola added.

The very fact that De Bruyne began and finished the Cardiff match while Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and David Silva were unused substitutes pointed to the rested trio starting Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Brighton. This year's De Bruyne looks a lot like last year's but is just not playing as well!

"He is nearly fit", said Guardiola.

Guardiola's men have a possible 13 games left in a season which could yet see them land an improbable quadruple. "I knew what I was doing, but it didn't go off", he said.

Despite the hectic schedule coming up, De Bruyne, 27, said the players are excited rather than worrying about tiredness.

A 17:30pm local-time start, limited late public transport provision back to Manchester, three London matches in the space of eight days and the overall expense of City's fourth trip to Wembley this season have all been cited as factors in the relatively limited uptake. In the end maybe we lose everything but at least we are here at this stage.

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.

This, I'm sure, will be a fantastic occasion.

"To reach the semi-finals is something we can all be proud of".

The manager defended Benjamin Mendy after the full-back was filmed in a club at 3.30am last week.

Guardiola said: "It is an incredible gesture". 'Liverpool came on with the white suits, I think. It's not the first time, and will not be the last one, so it is what it is. "Mentally, it's been tough because you can be injured once or twice but to be injured four times is hard work", he said.

The feel-good news surrounding Manchester City's game against a Brighton team that is struggling for form in the league is that City's England forward Raheem Sterling has paid for tickets for 550 pupils from his former school to allow them to see the game.
