Delph again deputised for Benjamin Mendy, who is out until April with a serious knee injury.

"Our first impression is that this will be a bit long, longer than what we imagined, which is a shame", said Guardiola after the victory of the Citizens against Donetsk in the champions League (2-0).

"We thought next summer about looking for another left-back - another replacement - but we will see what we do".
