"I'm pretty sure they'll have a good season".

The Premier League match between Man City and Fulham will be broadcast live on NBC Sports.

He has certainly started this season with a bang as City look to become the first team to defend the Premier League title in nearly a decade.

For City's prospects of adding to the two trophies they won last season, a return to form by Sane, who had been left on the bench by Guardiola for the opening month of the campaign, could prove hugely significant.

"But we can not forget, sometimes this kind of thing happens". It will be fascinating to see how this game progresses, as Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic insists the Whites will attempt to play their possession-based style even against the reigning Premier League champions.

"Sometimes he has to realise for himself, like a professional (what) he has to do - (I am) delighted for his performance".

Bernardo was thwarted when trying to cap his man-of-the-match display with a goal when he saw his effort blocked moments later, and it quickly became clear that Fulham had made no changes to their approach during the interval.

Since being named PFA Young Player of the Season last term, Sane's existence has been a turbulent one.

Asked if the Argentina striker would be fit for City's Champions League clash with Lyon on Wednesday, he said: "It's something in the ankle".

Guardiola, meanwhile, confirmed Sergio Aguero was substituted in Saturday's comprehensive 3-0 win over Fulham as a precaution.

'He jumped and fell down and felt something, ' Guardiola said. We'll see how he recovers tomorrow'.

"Our journey is not complete and we have more targets to fulfil".

'It's nice to get going again after the World Cup - we only got 12 days off, ' the England global said. He finished good the first half and the second half started a little bit uncomfortable. They have good players - [Jean Michael] Seri, and players in the front like [Aleksandar] Mitrovic.

But Guardiola was happy with the win and predicts that the Cottagers will take points off City's title rivals.

"At the end, the result is completely fair".

"They showed great possession of the ball and great attacking weapons".

"We didn't find our best level or our ideal level, and without this level at this place it is not easy to play football".
