Watch the first part of Pep Guardiola's press conference ahead of City's upcoming clash with Newcastle...

Guardiola revealed Fabian Delph is out of contention for City’s Premier League game on Saturday.

The stand-in left-back was substituted in last weekend's 4-3 defeat at Liverpool with a knee injury sustained in the first half and the Blues boss told press he is yet to discover the extent of his lay-off.

Guardiola also provided an update on Vincent Kompany’s progress. David Silva, who was on the bench at Anfield, trained on Friday.

“He [Delph] will be out for a while but we don’t know how long for yet,” the Catalan manager stated.

“[Vincent is] much better. We don’t know right now [if he will be fit to face Newcastle] but hopefully for the next games, he will be ready.

“We decided to start the season with just one full-back. We knew about the problem with Delph but in this kind of situation, we with see the reaction of the players, as it may not be their natural position.

“We are going to discuss many issues about positions.”
