Man City manager Guardiola: Stones will keep playing if he performs

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on defender John Stones.

The England stopper has started alongside in Ruben Dias in City's last three matches, all of which ended with a clean sheet.

And Guardiola says Stones will continue to get picked if he maintains his high standard.

Asked about picking Stones ahead of Aymeric Laporte during his media conference on Monday, Guardiola said: "It depends on the performance.

"John is performing well, so that's why he's playing. But there are a lot of games and anything can happen.

"Everyone has to be ready, I've told them that many times. Don't complain much, because around the corner you have the chance. Maybe not, but you have to be ready."
