Guardiola anticipates that he'll see an improvement in his defence but insists they need to be better at the other end of the pitch too if they are to compete for the Premier League. In the 34 years since we have experienced highs and very many lows. It's going to be tough for them.

Pep Guardiola promised Manchester City would rein in its unprecedented levels of spending after overseeing an outlay of approaching $500 million in his first year in charge. There´s a gulf between Albion and City.

He added: "We played four games, one with four at the back and the last three with three at the back".

Further forward, however, the omissions in this line-up show just how much strength and depth Manchester City possess. Perhaps we´ve got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. I assure you that.

"For us there are some great examples of teams that have gone up and stayed up".

"The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time". Which clubs will miss out on the top four?

"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".

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect", he said on Friday. Sooner or later it's going to finish.

However, the argument can be made that Man City should be made title favorites this season, as they have completed multiple tasks this summer and have done the most upgrading out of any of the top six clubs in England. I think we´re in for plenty of goals and a decent City win. 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.

Both Mendy and Walker are very attacking full backs, which should suit the Guardiola system well this season, as both Mendy and Walker had 5 assists in their respected leagues last season.

City have spent more than £200 million on a squad revamp following last season's underwhelming campaign. When I am not playing or training, I watch football all the time.

"If we do something good this season it's because we were together last season, and we know better, and I know better, and they know me better, and that's why it's easy".

Bernardo Silva will give us options in midfield and Ederson looks like a confident goalkeeper.
