Man City manager Guardiola waiting to decide on Ederson, Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will make a late decision on Ederson and Gabriel Jesus for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Club Brugge.

The Brazil pair were ruled out of the win over Burnley after playing for Selecao in a World Cup qualifier on Thursday night.

Both players have flown directly to Belgium, but Guardiola is concerned that they will not train with their teammates before Tuesday's match.

Guardiola said: "They are in Belgium right now. They told me they can play but we will see in what condition they are.

"We have time to prepare the training session but, because we have to train here, they will not be here. I have to think about it.

"We sent them there because the day after the game in Bruges they can come back and make a normal life. If they had come back directly to Manchester they would have been isolated in a hotel and we didn't want that. That is why they travelled to Belgium.

"Maybe they will be able to play and that is good news."
