  • Benjamin Mendy Sergio Aguero Manchester City 2018-19

The only thing more colourful than Pep Guardiola's jumper yesterday was his language as the Manchester City manager became embroiled in a weird hoax by defender Benjamin Mendy.

The Manchester City left-back posted his location on Instagram as being at Hong Kong global airport and when this was put to Guardiola, whose press conference was being broadcast on Sky Sports, the manager signalled his confusion by swearing.

If Guardiola had hoped to maintain a low profile before City's title challenge faces another serious test at home to Chelsea tomorrow, it did not really go according to plan. F***, he's a lucky guy.

Guardiola replied, "Well before, he said "I'm going one day to Paris".OK, but Hong Kong is far away".

Mendy, who is now injured, posted an Instagram story of himself in a vehicle with the location set at Hong Kong Airport on Friday morning, having posted images of himself in Barcelona just a day earlier. "[It's not okay to be in] Hong Kong, definitely not".

In Mendy's absence, City reclaimed top spot on the Premier League in midweek with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park.

"I have to install Instagram on my account".

"Yesterday he was in Barcelona".

Guardiola's comical reaction to Mendy's whereabouts soon vent viral with the hashtag #WhereIsMendy trending on social media.

"People believed managers arrive at good clubs and immediately create something", he said. The sides will take on each other on February 24 as well, as they play in the final of the Carabao Cup.

"My feeling when I saw Chelsea at Community Shield was they were already there". They have midfielders who are the best in the world, a good keeper and experienced defenders'. But they could be back in second place when they kick-off as Liverpool play Bournemouth a day before.

"His injury is not easy, meniscus external, and it's not easy", Guardiola said.
