Same manager, same tactics, better players - Guardiola lays out Man City blueprint

With Man City spending around £202m on first team players and an astonishing £159m spent exclusively on defenders and goalkeepers, it would appear that Pep Guardiola finally has the right back line and goalie at City.

But the former Benfica player is adamant he remains "calm and ready to help my team" despite his new price-tag. I feel the same pressure at Barcelona when I arrived.

"The big fail now takes one week in football". It doesn't make an influence on me, maybe for others it does.

By having the most successful summer of any Premier League team, adding to their already talented squad, filling up holes left in the squad, and dominating preseason, City should not only be the favorite to win the League, but also a serious contender for the Champions League.

City's playing staff has undergone a massive overhaul over the last two summer transfer windows after Guardiola took over one of the oldest squads in Europe.

"Of course, it had an influence on me [the presence of Pep Guardiola here]".

After weeks of build-up, the Premier League campaign finally kicks off on Friday night, and it is promises to be one of the most exciting and open season's in recent memory. I was very happy when I found out he wanted to count on me. I assure you that.

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all come in along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva.

He added: "But we prefer to be aggressive without the ball, it's the same as last season".

He said: "Last season we were favourites too and finished 15 points behind and, from my experience as a manager, always in the beginning of the season, the new teams are the toughest ones. I like them as a club and I like Slaven Bilic so they will do better than they did last season".

"I have a feeling that we will score early and get a good win against Brighton on Saturday".

"Buying from the same league is more hard".

Brighton have broken their club transfer record twice in one week to draft in Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge's Jose Izquierdo, subject to medical and worldwide clearance.

"We're not expected to beat teams like City".

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect".

"We spent the first three months in the bottom places".

It's a big day for Brighton after they were promoted from the Championship last season, impressive throughout and finishing in second after being pipped to the title by Newcastle United.
