Manchester City have identified their ideal replacement for injured left-back Benjamin Mendy.

Mendy, who has made an impressive start to his career at City following his move from Monaco, for a reported £52 million, missed Tuesday's 2-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. We have 10 days, there's an global break after Cheslea game.

"Winning here is huge, massive", Delph told his club's official website. We knew coming in it would be our toughest game yet this season.

Mendy was forced off during the first half of Saturday's Premier League victory over Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium after being hurt in a tackle on Andros Townsend.

"It sends out a massive message". We had a game plan and we stuck to it and come out for three points. "That win is for you big man". The plan was to stop them on the counter and we did the job down to a tee, so it's happy days.

Guardiola said: "In the way he plays, the amount of times he goes up and down the sides, there is no replacement, we have to play in a different way".

Throwing the world's most expensive defender's 2017-18 season in doubt, Manchester City on Friday announced that Benjamin Mendy has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.

Meanwhile, City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed he will not be rushed into the transfer market, despite losing his only out-and-out left-back.

The former Borussia Dormund said of his team-mate, Mendy: "I think he's the guy who's the most disappointed one".

But Guardiola insisted yesterday that he is not concerned by his players' off-field activities.
