"It's the same pressure as I had last season".
Lukaku hit 25 league goals for Everton last season and, with supply coming from the likes of Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Belgian should record a similar tally. But Guardiola didn't have the impact some had expected and his refusal to adapt to the demands of the Premier League or accept criticism of his team prompted some hostility. They already have players with top flight experience.
There were some promising signs last season - an opening salvo of 10 straight wins, a stunning Champions League victory over Barcelona - but City never found any consistent form.
Silva said he had not seen whether their equaliser was offside, but added: "Until the end of the market, we'll do more [signings]".
This should also be the season for John Stones, who certainly didn't do what he was bought to do last season.
China vows to adhere strictly to United Nations sanctions on North Korea
The US-drafted proposal passed the Security Council 15-0, securing support from North Korean allies China and Russian Federation . USA officials have been adamant there will be no direct meetings with North Koreans in Manila, even among lower-level officials.
The 20-year-old is now recovered from his metatarsal injury and City followers are wondering whether Guardiola can find room for both Jesus and Aguero in his starting line-up. I am backing him to deliver this time around, though.
Alvaro Morata has replaced the exiled Diego Costa up front, Tiemoue Bakayoko has taken Matic's place in midfield and Antonio Rudiger brings extra defensive cover, but Chelsea still look a few players short.
"It shows a real intent to want to be the best they can, win the title and ultimately of course it's about the Champions League as well".
"My family and I were fortunate enough to travel across seven states, driving over 2,000 miles, following Manchester City on tour (in America) this summer and we had the most fantastic time".
City have a training camp in Spain three days after their Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday. An opening goal for them would be wonderful, but City should handle them quite easily.
Last season can only be described as a resurgence period, a season of transition.

"But there's no doubt that the level of transfer fees have increased dramatically".
Immediately after Brighton secured promotion to the top-flight for the first time in 34 years, their chairman Tony Bloom warned he would not break the bank in a bid to avoid relegation.
"Like every club that's promoted to the Premier League, it's to finish 17th or higher".
"There won't be too many betting shops throughout the country that would put us outside the bottom three".
"I just hope that any competition between us benefits the team, that it inspires both of us to score plenty of goals for City and leads to the club winning lots of matches and trophies". This as a result of their goalkeeping reinforcement and their more electric sidelines as it appears.
The squad depth is good for rotation, so their involvement in other competitions shouldn't be a problem.
