Riyad Mahrez 'pleased' with start to life at Manchester City

Goetze's victor came in the 28th minute when American worldwide Christian Pulisic was hauled down in the box, allowing the midfielder who famously scored the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final to beat Claudio Bravo.

The majority of Guardiola's squad are on holiday after their World Cup exploits but new signing Riyad Mahrez made his first appearance for the club against the Germans in a youthful lineup. If he would at one point join us I don't know.

"He had not his best season previous year but he was a decisive player but it's important, there's no rush, that's good and he wants to be the best Pulisic he can be".

Quiz: City in preseason: The Manchester City squad are in Chicago as part of the first leg of our 2018 preseason US Tour. "But he has a really good club now".

"I need to go somewhere permanent, I think that's obvious", he told reporters. I'm so satisfied with the guys.

Pep Guardiola is determined to help Hart and has put him in the shop window by using him in pre-season. It is of course the most negative thing about the day.

"We spoke in the week about courage, intensity and a desire to play".

Now he's encouraging everyone else to do the same, and spend 15 minutes outside keeping count of the butterflies they see. To participate, find a sunny spot anywhere in the United Kingdom and spend 15 minutes counting the butterflies you see.

Mahrez was City's best player, who showcased his attacking threat with a decent run and cross midway through the first half.

"It will be a good experience for them (the young players) to realise they can compete (at senior level) and play well".

Hart's troubles at City saw him lose his England place to Jordan Pickford and although he was delighted to see Gareth Southgate's side upset the odds in Russian Federation and reach the semi-finals, it wasn't easy viewing. Guardiola explained that his winger was not fully match fit.

Matip was unable to make it past the 20-minute mark and was left with no other choice but to exit the pitch, with concerns again raised over his fitness.

"All the players did very good things".

Liverpool will aim to bounce back when they play Manchester City in New Jersey on Wednesday night, while Dortmund face Benfica in Pittsburgh, in Pulisic's home state of Pennsylvania.
