Money no object for Man City, but Guardiola must deliver

City's Arab billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour has invested more than £200m in new players for the coming season, adding to already impressive attacking options and upgrading identified "weak spots" at full-back and goalkeeper. Clyne is set to miss the start of the season through injury, so Alexander-Arnold has another chance to make a mark. I'm not going to say we are going to play all the season in that system, we are going to play different systems, but the fundamentals will be the same. I think it will be a draw.

Who's going to win the title?

"But we must focus on ourselves". We needed to do it because we were one of the oldest teams in Europe.

"That's what we want". In the 34 years since we have experienced highs and very many lows.

"We have spent, yes, but all the teams - with the exception of Tottenham - have spent", Guardiola said.

In wake of the Buffalo Bills' preseason opener, general manager Brandon Beane already has an eye toward the organization's future. Sometimes that's a day-to-day process and sometimes those are not easy decisions from a leadership standpoint.

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

Chelsea were sensationally upstaged by Arsenal in last season's FA Cup final and lost to them again in Sunday's Community Shield, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger retains little margin for error.

'The last six, seven years City never bought full backs.

"That's what we expect from him". I'm a type of player with a lot of experience.

"They told me this is a really big club with a nice history". Alongside that they have also added Romelu Lukaku in attack and Victor Lindelof. The former England worldwide recently said Man City was a force with the team they had in place already and on top of that their buys have strengthened their defence. But I'm settling in well here.

Out: Santi Cazorla (ankle), Laurent Koscielny (suspended), Alexis Sanchez (abdominal), Gabriel (knee). We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is".

Ouch. On the opening day of the top-flight season, that was a hurtful one from Pep Guardiola.

His formidable kicking ability, both in terms of distance and accuracy, enables City to get the ball forward more quickly.

"He wants me to keep doing the same style of game, starting the build-up. This group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City".

For one thing, they will have Champions League commitments to fulfil, and, just to make things tougher, their first four Champions League games are all followed by league matches against top five sides. I feel the same pressure as Barcelona when I arrived. His bosses, City's Abu Dhabi-based hierarchy rather than the Catalan axis of chief executive Ferran Soriano and director of football Txiki Begiristain, will not be quite so understanding and accepting of failure if major silverware is not delivered this season. "I politely asked the coach of Middlesbrough and the two referees if he could leave one field and come on to the other".

Pitching for the first time since Saturday, Chapman walked Jackie Bradley Jr . on four pitches and Eduardo Nunez on five. Forced from Tuesday's loss to Toronto after three innings, Sabathia returned to NY for an MRI on Wednesday.
