Man City fly to Brighton ahead of Premier League opener

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said the club will curb their transfer spending in future years after a huge outlay on players during the close season.

For context, the Sportingintelligence website reported that Watford's 50 million-pound summer spending is more than four times that of every Scottish club combined. If the club decides [I am] not able, we are going to take a solution.

"We spoke and I saw how tough the league is last season".

"It's going to be tough, very tough".

That hasn't happened since 1951, when Arsenal (1948), Portsmouth (1949 and 1950) and Spurs (1951) dominated, before Manchester United took the First Division title back up north. There's a gulf between Albion and City.

"We got promoted and won the league, and now we're back to the Premier League".

Frustrated by Newcastle's failure to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham and Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, who instead joined Chelsea, Benitez tried to shame Ashley into action. I think soon [they will be back] but not for this game. We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1. Get used to it: there'll be ten Friday-night matches in all this season. Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal.

"I was confident then too", the coach admitted.

Premier League legends Shearer and Henry hold the record of most consecutive wins, and though Spurs' Jimmy Greaves' did win in 1962/63 and 1963/64, he shared the top scorer award with Blackburn's Andy McEvoy in 1964/65. "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".

"But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable".

The experts have had their say, now it's your chance to predict how the Premier League table will look come the end of the season. "Sead Kolasinac is also is in England now; I met him already in London", Sane said.

"I would like to see Pep Guardiola stay even if City didn't win a trophy, but the reality of football is that he would most likely be sacked if we have another season like the last one". When I am not playing or training, I watch football all the time'.

The Catalan has looked to rectify that by spending big in the summer transfer window, almost in the excess of £200million, and City have backed that spending up in pre-season winning their last three matches.

"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".
