Leicester manager Claude Puel says he hopes Riyad Mahrez can "get his head right" and rejoin the team, confirming the Algeria worldwide will not feature against Manchester City on Saturday.

The German added to a growing number of injury absentees which provoked Guardiola to name only six of a possible seven substitutes for last weekend's 1-1 draw at Burnley which saw City's lead at the top of the Premier League cut to 13 points.

"I hope he can get his right and come back with us and work hard".

"It was just one or two hours later and it would not have been correct to go the [youth team] manager who is preparing for the game and say "I need one or two players to go on the bench" when they are going to play".

The other 32, including three-time Games gold medallist An, were also left off the list of Russians invited to Pyeongchang . Stephen Hess, an worldwide sports lawyer based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, said the decision was a victory for the IOC.

Since transfer deadline day, which was when Manchester City's bid was rejected by the Foxes, Mahrez hadn't trained with his team. Riyad came back, and he is an important player.

With the pair ably backed by a sensational supporting cast, including Leroy Sane, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, City have scored 20 more goals than the next-best attacking side, Liverpool, and amassed 16 points more than city rivals United, in second place. Every game he creates chances and helps us defensively and the fact we are there and fighting for important things - in that situation you are not exhausted. "Now it's important to move on together and prepare for the next game".

A week later though the Manchester City manager seems to not be able to forget Neville's criticism and has taken fresh aim at him, focusing in on the ex-Manchester United defender's disastrous spell as Valencia manager back in 2016. "Five goals in the Premier League, especially against Leicester [makes it impressive]".

"Leicester have the fundamentals they have from a long time ago that helped them to be champions in the Premier League", he explained.

Mahrez only returned to training on Friday for the first time since the window closed, but when asked if City felt responsible for Mahrez's absence, Guardiola said: I don't think so. "We enjoy watching him", he said.

According to Sky, Mahrez has been hit with a £240,000 ($334,000) fine for failing to report to training over the past week.
