Sterling is suspended for the noon clash with Liverpool.
While Guardiola says that there was “zero per cent chance” of that, he noted the winger was upset getting subbed then left on the bench by England during the international break.
Pep said: “Arsenal wanted to make a swap with Raz. I said, ‘No chance. Zero chance.’ I have a lot of trust in Raz. Players have to learn that not everyone is going to play.
“So that’s happened with Raz in the national team, here it will happen in the rest of the season for all the players, especially in my team.”
