Pep: Free-spending unsustainable

13 August 2017

What is the team news?

"I feel the same pressure as Barcelona when I arrived". Then in the most volatile result so far, Chelsea opened its title defense by imploding with a 3-2 loss to Burnley and ending the game with nine men. "I'm calm and I'm ready to help my team".

The club will need to bear in mind that City spent nearly £200 million on new signings this summer, with close to £150 million of that being spent on full-backs.

Guardiola said: "It is not just us". It is why, since he took charge, the club has spent in excess of £400 million on new players: They are simply not prepared to accept second-best.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola warns the free-spending ways of clubs in the transfer market is "unsustainable".

Premier League table 2017/18
The danger for Chelsea is that the harmonious atmosphere re-established by Conte after Mourinho's bitter departure is eroded. Brighton and Huddersfield were promoted alongside a Newcastle side making an instant return to the Premier League.

"We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we made a decision to put energy in the team for the next five, six years", Guardiola said during his pre-match conference on Friday. I congratulated him and said that I'm very happy for him, that Stoke isn't that far away and that we can see each other.

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season and we will try to do our best".

In the end they were undone by their own mistakes, with Dale Stephens caught in possession in the lead-up to Aguero's goal and Dunk's own goal sealing their fate in a game City should have won more comfortably given their 75 percent possession. "It will not be easy but we travel to win the game".

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Chris Hughton or Josep Guardiola?

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 global clearance. He led the league in assists last yer with 18 and I expect him to lead the league again.

Buffalo Bills likely to pick from Chiefs secondary during roster cuts
The Buffalo Bills dialed up a pair of trades on Friday morning that comprehensively reorganize their wideout room - among others. Either way, it's clear the Bills were looking beyond the Watkins era after refusing to pick up his pricey option for 2018.

"We need more offensive opportunities".

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect. We had one of oldest teams in Europe + not bought a full-back for years".

This formation would also bring out the best of attacking full backs Walker and Mendy who would be deployed as wing backs with Danilo being a great option for either wing when needed.

The club also went on to sign PSV's Dutch midfielder Davy Propper to boost their quality, and considering Propper's performances and potential, City could face a tough task in the midfield area on Saturday.

Guardiola defends Man City's big spending
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.
