Mahrez got a visit from UK Anti Doping this week after manager Pep Guardiola revealed he had been left out of the Community Shield win over Liverpool as a precaution. [via @StuBrennanMEN]

Pep Guardiola on the Riyad Mahrez situation: “In Algeria he had surgery on his nose so he could breathe better. Everytime you take something you have to inform the club and make the list. We didn’t have it. Last week anti-doping made the test. Everything is clear. He can play.”
