The Brazilian is back in contention for the Boxing Day trip to Hull, following a three-game ban for a red card against Chelsea.

The Blues manager admitted his midfielder had been missed.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Guardiola stated: “Fernandinho is so important for us – he can play in ten positions.

“It is so important he is back. We are happy.

“At Leicester, sure [we missed him].”

When asked how he felt about Boxing Day games – in particular his first – Guardiola added: “I watched them on TV or live when I came for holidays to London.

“I enjoyed them a lot. They are beautiful.”

“I cannot sleep!” he joked.
