Money no object for Man City, but Guardiola must deliver

The Seagulls coasted to promotion last season and their credentials will immediately be tested against Pep Guardiola's big-spending side.

"I think when the other players got their tactics off the manager and it was a little bit hard for them".

"We finished the contracts of five or six players and in the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs, so we had to buy full-backs".

Former England and Newcastle striker Shearer is tipping Manchester United to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2013.

The Manchester City boss has spent close to £200 million on new players this summer - four of which cost more than £40m. Pep Guardiola has bought well, bought a lot of pace into the team at the back, including Kyle Walker.

"We will try to do our best, not just for this season but for the future and especially the next years".

"We decided last season we could change the team to make the team younger for the next four or five years".

"Man City are rightly favourites to win the league this season".

The MSCI World index slipped 0.15 percent, extending Thursday's 1.1 percent drop, its biggest one-day slide since May 17. The answer to this is naturally impossible to answer, because if we knew, the markets would already be reacting.

"The mentality of the manager is playing good and winning - not just winning", Toure told club website.

Arguably the best goalie in the Premier League and in the world, it is easy to see why the Manchester United player is the most picked player in his position.

"I have a lot of respect for the players I had, I never complained for one bad game or bad defeat, making excuses, never, even in Germany I never said that, never in my life I make an excuse about what happened", he added. Guardiola is also under pressure, having returned trophyless in his first season at City.

Also worth noting that Burnley's away record last season was terrible, and their first five away games are at Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City, so it will be neon impossible to keep clean sheets in these games.

"You've got to be able to overcome those hard experiences that are going to come in this league".

You should strengthen from the point of strength and, while what Danny Rose is saying is wrong, you need to add that competitive edge. Everyone has witnessed the way a Guardiola team can play when Pep has the right players and everyone understands the tactics, as Guardiola has won the Champions League twice with Barcelona and has steamrolled the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich three times.

"The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time".

"The big fail now takes one week in football!". We played 3-4-3 with a diamond, it's such a demanding system, so attacking, but so demanding defensively, and we did it quite well, yet for me it doesn't matter as it's pre-season. This summer we had to do that because we had one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League.
