MANCHESTER CITY TRAINING ON PITCH IN NEW TOTTENHAM STADIUM 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER PEP GUARDIOLA SAYING: "It affects (new stadium) if we think about the spectator, if we think about what we have to do on the pitch it doesn't affect.

You are thinking what is going to happen outside the pitch okay, the stadium is what it is, and of course it the Champions League games away the supporters support the team more than ever.

It's the second time that Spurs play at home so we know exactly what we're going to face, but still in our hands how we handle it.

So we want to makes step forwards as a club as a team, we have to know how to handle these situations, if we don't it is because we are not prepared to go through." STORY: Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has shaken off a muscle injury and could return to action in Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Tottenham Hotspur, manager Pep Guardiola said on Monday (April 8).

The Argentine has returned to full training after missing the last two matches following an injury in last month's 2-0 Premier League win over Fulham.

Kyle Walker picked up a minor hamstring injury in Saturday's 1-0 FA Cup semi-final victory over Brighton and Hove Albion but should be ready to play while fellow defender Benjamin Mendy is also in contention.

Guardiola said he expected Tottenham to stick to their attacking instincts as they look to seal a first European victory in their new stadium.
