With just eight players in training - and only three of those realistic first-team options - Guardiola is limited as to the impact he can have ahead of the new season until more senior players return.

The plan was for a number of academy players to bolster the group, but precautionary isolation among the youth setup has kept the training group in single figures.

One youngster who has been able to step up, however, is Ben Knight - the 19-year-old forward signed for £1m from Ipswich in 2018.
