Eliaquim Mangala knows there's no playing guarantees at Manchester City.

The Frenchman faces competition from club captain Vincent Kompany and World Cup finalist Martin Demichelis in the centre of defence. Matija Nastasic, 21, has already won 13 caps for Serbia.

"Guarantees don’t exist, what really counts is how I play in training sessions and games when I get the chance. Everybody in the squad wants to play and you can only put 11 players in the side," said Mangala.

"The only thing you can do as a player is make your own guarantees by doing well in training and giving the manager a difficult decision. There are plenty of games this season and I am sure I will get my chance."
