The City midfielder withdrew from the Portugal squad after picking up a knock in their 0-0 draw with Italy on Saturday and will not recover in time to play at the London Stadium.
“The injury is not too big but this game, no, I don’t know if he is available next Tuesday [when City play Lyon away].
“Yeah, [Nico] is back. Everyone else is okay.”
Meanwhile, Guardiola has praised former Blues boss Manuel Pellegrini.
The Chilean was in charge at City for three seasons, winning the Premier League and League Cup in 2014, before handing over the reigns to Guardiola in 2016.
Guardiola says Pellegrini has had a fine career and believes he has creates teams that play with a distinct, attractive style.
“His career speaks for itself in terms of the quality," he said.
"When you see the teams of Manuel Pellegrini, when you are blind you recognise his style.
"He put this team on another level. The way they played and created a style was impressive.
"He went to Real Madrid [in 2009] and made 96 points. It was good. Here he won the league and helped this club be where we are right now.
"He will do well at West Ham where there are many good supporters."
