Manchester City face off with Wolves on Saturday as they look to make it seven wins from seven in the league.
Speaking ahead of the match, Guardiola confirmed that John Stones, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva will miss out vs Wolves.
However, John Stones could make his return to action at some point next week.
Guardiola told a press conference on Friday: “We have training this afternoon.
“I think John is still not ready. Kevin is still not ready. Bernardo Silva also is not OK. I think the rest are fine.
“He (Stones) is better, much better. I spoke with him, he feels really good. He is training alone, but maybe next week, or after RB Leipzig (next Wednesday) he will restart.”
On having to replace the suspended Rodri, Guardiola added: “Just for the amount he (Rodri) has played, the consistency - of course, it is not easy to replace.
“But he’s out, we’re are going to find another quality, skills that Rodri maybe hasn’t. We are going to use it for the benefit of the team.
“(Phillips) has a chance (of being selected) like the other ones. He’s part of the group, he made incredible contributions playing not regularly. I don’t have any complaints about that.
“Sometimes we are looking for something specific for some positions. When the game is a little bit (moves hands about and scrunches up face) Kalvin is the perfect one. When the game has to be everything in the details, maybe he struggles a little bit more. The game against Newcastle was a tough game, he helped us a lot to win against Nottingham Forest. He has specific qualities, and in some moments we will need him.”
