Sven Goran Eriksson has enjoyed a "hectic" first few weeks as Manchester City manager.
It was a fairly late start for the new era at City with the former England head coach taking charge of the Blues on July 6, but things have moved along very quickly.
He admitted: "Especially in July and August, everything is quick, if you talk about transfers we have done a lot of deals now and I suppose we haven't finished yet.
"It's good to be back even if it has been a hectic few weeks, but that's good, I like it.
"The preparation we've done has been very good. We've been very lucky with very few injuries, even if now Isaksson has a long-term injury."
Another injury line from the Manager was that Emile Mpenza's leg muscle trouble seems to have got the better of him as the Manager added: "Emile will start training with us on Sunday and hopefully be ready for the Wednesday game.
"He will not take part in Saturday's game."
