"It definitely feels like we're back to our best".

The 20-year-old wriggled past two Brighton defenders and stroked the ball inside the near post from the edge of the box with his right foot.

Prior to his return, the ex-Mamelodi Sundowns star scored four goals in the First Division A for Vincent Kompany's team this season but Pienaar believes that he will need time to settle well in England.

Given leaders and local rivals Manchester United visit second-placed Liverpool on Sunday and have a resurgent Arsenal among their next opponents, while Jurgen Klopp's men must also face Tottenham before January is over, it would be a courageous man who ruled out City topping the table by the end of a month in which they entertain Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Sheffield United, and travel to West Brom.

Guardiola's team have largely brushed off the absences of a number of players as a result of various coronavirus issues.

"It was another good performance". He deserves to play.

A player holding himself to the high standards Sterling does is unlikely to take any comfort in the old head-tousling adage of "he was there to miss 'em", but there is something to be said for his relentless desire to contribute to the cause, irrespective of where his individual form resides.

Foden's eighth goal of the season was a superb effort. Collecting a pass from Kevin De Bruyne in the Brighton penalty area, his first touch took out two defenders before he dispatched a low shot inside the post and beyond the dive of Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez. I think he's got the talent, the passion, the work ethic to do well in the Premier League, but I think he must be given more time to adapt, of course, the unwanted pressure might get to him.

He failed to wrap up the points from the penalty spot in stoppage time after Sanchez brought down De Bruyne.

Despite breaking into the England squad, Foden seemed to be down the pecking order.

Former South Africa captain Steven Pienaar has advised Brighton & Hove Albion forward Percy Tau to focus on his football and help his team avoid Premier League relegation. "It was the same against [Manchester United's] Aaron Wan-Bissaka", said Guardiola.

City played without a recognised striker against Graham Potter's Brighton but despite not being at their fluent best in soggy Manchester, Foden's first-half goal proved enough. "Gareth, I don't know but I am sure he was really impressed by him, like all of us".

City turned the screws after the break and Mahrez again wasted a good opportunity, shooting wide after going clear. Sterling has played 24 games and completed 1,864 minutes this season, second only to Premier League ever-present Rodri in the City squad. "It's attractive. Every time I walk into the Etihad I feel excited because they have brilliant players".

"The best footballing team in the league", said former Scotland worldwide Pat Nevin on BBC Radio 5 Live. "They are a joy to watch".

And, although the Brighton game ended in personal disappointment, his introduction from the bench was his 220th appearance under Guardiola.

After an uncertain start to a delayed campaign, City now look anything but strugglers.
