5 young players ready for Premier League breakthrough

12 August 2017

"In the next three or four years City will buy one, two, maybe three players".

"You've got to be able to overcome those hard experiences that are going to come in this league".

"So yes we'll look at as many good experiences as we can do, and that's for the whole of the season, not just the start".

"There are some transfers that have gone ahead so far that are so above our levels you nearly have to disregard them. We're raring to go". We spent, of course, but all the teams spent - except maybe Tottenham.

Having insisted throughout last season, particularly when the team was struggling during the winter months, that he would never change his principles, the reality is that Guardiola has modified his approach in an effort to succeed in England.

"Some of the transfer fees are insane but it shows how good these players are".

"It was the proposal they presented me, this is a club with big ambition to win trophies this season. But there's no fear", he added.

The City manager also revealed that German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who has been out injured since last December, was close to making his eagerly-comeback, with the friendly fixture at Girona on August 15 being earmarked as a potential date for his return to first-team action. "But that spurs us even more, everybody writing us off already, so I hope we can prove them wrong".

Empowered by a close-season transfer splurge of some £200 million ($264.8 million, 233.5 million euros), Manchester City are the early favourites to topple Premier League champions Chelsea.

I think this is a massive jump up for Huddersfield.

Meanwhile, Guardiola claims there will be no immediate repeat of this summer's lavish spending at Manchester City.

Guardiola said: "It is not just us".

With the biggest revenue in the league, the biggest stadium, the biggest wage bill, the most successful history, the second-most expensive player and the biggest signing this summer, United have plenty of things in place to make a better fist of things.

John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi need Kompany playing with them, and we'll see all three together quite a few times this season as Pep has used a back three in preseason and it gave him some great results and performances.

"Guardiola's side have been installed as title favourites but the former Barcelona boss is not taking anything for granted and anticipates a tough start against the Seagulls". Tottenham will not fade away, while Liverpool, Arsenal and a resurgent Everton will also ensure that last season's top seven will fight tooth-and-nail for the top positions.

Alexis Sanchez is still at the Emirates, and new signing Alexandre Lacazette looks a potential star, so a top-four challenge ought to be well within Arsenal's grasp, though a shaky defence remains a problem and they are as high as 12-1 to win the Premier League.

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season. I think if Liverpool could get a out-and-out centre-forward then we could push for the title.
