Manchester City players are reportedly worried that they could lose their places in Pep Guardiola's side after seeing Leroy Sane fall out of favor with the manager.

The 22-year-old voted PFA Young Player of the Year last season and he was one of the City's standout performers on their way to a record-breaking title success but Germany international has played only 30 minutes in his club four games so far.

According to Evening Standard claiming that Sane was left out in the matchday squad by Guardiola in the 2-1 win over Newcastle United at Etihad on Saturday has caused big worries for the Manchester City players with fear of losing their place if should they allow their standards to drop.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich regard ex-Bundesliga star as the important player in the team and the coach believes that dropping the winger will only motivate him to improve in the future.

Sane made 49 appearances and banging in 14 goals for the defending champions last season.
