"But we also know that the more this young team plays together, the better they will become, and we have huge belief in this group of players".
"If not we are very confident he will be back for the game after City against Chelsea". David Wagner's side have scored the fewest goals in the Premier League this season. It is essential that Huddersfield Town wins this game since points will be the only way they will survive.
Toure, who has made just nine appearances this season, is wary of disrupting his young family with a move overseas and is settled in England, although he will be reluctant to take a major cut in his current £140,000-a-week salary.
"Yaya came here when they started this idea of the club and what we are now is thanks to this guy and what he has done". Bulldozer of a dribbler, changer of games, scorer of masterful goals - the lot.
Ederson has stressed that "there is always room for improvement" as Manchester City set about building for next season.
"That was, for me, the biggest period of pressure between 2006 and 2014". Do you play football because you love football - or do you play because you want to make money? "That is the best signal". His contributions since have been immensely significant, as he aided the club to clinch all of their 3 Premier League titles, 2 League Cups, and an FA Cup as well.
An appearance against Brighton would be Toure's 316th in City colours, per Transfermarkt, although just his 17th of the current campaign after Guardiola turned to other options since taking over.
"Yaya is not going to stay next season", Guardiola said, as quoted by The Mirror.
"Of course the people talk too much and say he is diving".
"In our day, you probably had four players who were really top-notch skilful players who could open the game up".
"I have had information from [Dr Ramon] Cugat that he will arrive okay [at the World Cup]", Guardiola said.
