Pep Guardiola: 'I am not scared' to play Manchester City youngsters

Aguero scored twice and laid on another as City beat Huddersfield 5-1 in the FA Cup on Wednesday but, crucially, also displayed increased work-rate and a desire to help his side regain possession. Leroy Sane netted the first on the half-hour mark with a tap-in from inside of the six-yard box from Raheem Sterling's cross from the right, then Sergio Aguero gave Pep Guardiola's side the lead on 35 minutes from the penalty spot following a Jon Gorenc Stankovic foul on Nicolas Otamendi.

The FA Cup could be Citys best chance of a trophy in Guardiolas first season in charge.

Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus' arrival in January saw Aguero drop down to the bench until the starlet suffered a broken fifth metatarsal in his foot at Bournemouth last month.

Aguero returned to the team and is doing exactly what Guardiola wants.

Asked if he will be at City next season, Aguero said: "That will be seen in June".

Russian Federation says will veto Syria sanctions over chemical weapons
The Syrian government has repeatedly denied using chemical weapons in the war that has killed 310,000 people since March 2011. US Ambassador Nikki Haley said she was not swayed by the Russian arguments. "People have died by being suffocated to death".

Sterling will be one of players that Guardiola will be hoping can make a difference. "I'm pretty sure he's coming back".

"The club can say what it wants, but in June they will have to meet with me".

Garcia, who joined City from Villarreal in 2015, has been training with the first team all season and has made three Premier League appearances as a substitute. There was sarcastic applause from some City fans when he saved Huddersfield's second shot on goal just before halftime.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has once again defended the recent form of goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, claiming that his performance against Huddersfield Town was "amazing".

Yesterdays win sets up a quarter-final match against Middlesbrough on March 11, forcing Citys Premier League game against Stoke City, originally scheduled for that date, to be brought forward to next Wednesday.
