“I think it will be good for him and to show that the reason why he is here is because he is a magnificent player.”

The Spaniard added that Zack Steffen is the only member of his squad who won’t be in contention to start, leading to a dilemma as to who will start between the sticks.

“No. Some knocks, but today everyone trained,” Guardiola said.

“Zack Steffen - Not yet [will he be back]. He is still in the gym.

“[We will] Decide tomorrow with Xabi [goalkeeper coach Mancisidor] [on who will play in goal]. Tomorrow we’ll talk about that.”

City will likely start with a 4-3-3 formation, although Guardiola has opted to use a 4-2-2-2 shape at times this season.

Peterborough will be without Oliver Norburn (suspension), Callum Morton (cup-tied), Dan Butler (ankle) and Jack Taylor (hamstring), while Mark Beevers could return to the matchday squad on Saturday.
