Guardiola can also call on Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Agüero, David Silva, Fernandinho, Nicolás Otamendi and Yaya Touré (though he has been left at home), who all played for City against Real Madrid in the 2016 semi-final.
Chelsea were the other English side in action on matchday one, thumping Azerbaijani newcomers Qarabag 6-0 at home, while Manchester City and Liverpool face Feyenoord and Sevilla, respectively, on Wednesday.
"I don't know if we are able to compete for the titles because we are in the process of growing up". "English teams spend more money but I grew up with the Holland culture and I know how they play". We are not dreaming - when you're in that position [of having a chance] it's better to be calm.
The midfielder fought his way back into Guardiola's plans by working hard in training and was eventually handed a one-year contract extension in May in recognition of his efforts throughout the season. "That's why I can't be sure if we will be able to make that step".
'But the decision was he didn't play the last game and today he's not in the squad.
Toure was excluded from the City squad for the first months of Pep Guardiola's reign a year ago, firstly for refusing to leave the club on a transfer last summer and then for comments made by the Ivorian's controversial agent, Dimitri Seluk. We are still in the process.
"I am so happy with what the club have done", he said.
"I can not speak for the other four teams in the Champions League", Guardiola said.
Guardiola coached Toure at Barcelona, where the former Ivory Coast worldwide lost his place in the first XI and was transferred to City in 2010.
Guardiola left Touré behind in Manchester and the Ivorian is yet to feature for City in their four games this season.
"I'm so happy with the what I have, I was so happy last season".

"I demand as much as possible", he said.
Despite City's £215m outlay on players this summer, Guardiola said he still sees a gulf of experience and confidence between his own side and the usual favourites, including his former clubs, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Guardiola's goalkeeper Ederson was an emblem of the spirit he hinted is missing in Toure.
One player who could make an unexpected return to action is Ederson. "I want more, not just from Yaya - I want more from everyone".
Captain Vincent Kompany will miss out for City once more due to his latest calf injury setback.
