Pep Guardiola has offered an update on the fitness on Benjamin Mendy, Gabriel Jesus and David Silva and it’s promising news as far as the full-back is concerned.

The Manchester City boss said the defender was feeling a lot better and could even be ready to return to first-team training next month.

He was, however, a little more unsure on David Silva who is a doubt for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Burnley.

Guardiola also said Jesus is out for another four to five weeks which is a bit longer than the last time he spoke about him, as pointed out by Goal’s Sam Lee.

Hopefully Silva will be fit for tomorrow’s game which may be a tough test with Burnley having conceded just nine goals at home in the Premier League this season.
