Brighton have been busy in the transfer market themselves since securing promotion from the Championship after two excellent seasons for Chris Hughton's team.
The 35-year-old was the only United player to get into double figures in the league.
There are more than 200 million reasons why the Premier League trophy will be paraded in Manchester next May after City and United spent the summer splashing their cash.
Manchester City (-325) should have a full complement of talent when it takes on Brighton and Hove Albion (+900) on Saturday.
Manchester City's struggles in big games and between the sticks hurt Pep Guardiola in his first season as a manager in England. "I have been impressed because he is a good player, strong physically and technically".More news: Antonio Conte : I never wanted Matic to leave Chelsea for United
"It is normal for me and for the players that start to work with me that they need time to adapt to our style of football". Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal. His presence is one of the things that's transformed Tottenham from a team that annually contended for a Champions League berth to one that's earned one in both his seasons as a member of the senior team. But then we won at Nottingham Forest (who were then European champions), gained some confidence, put some runs together, and finished well clear of the relegation zone.
"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".
United drew 10 of their 19 home league games as they registered the top-flight's seventh-best record in front of their own fans. "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".
There's nothing appealing about the 12/1 offered for a first league win since 2004 and we won't be taking the 10/1 available for a Tottenham triumph.
The 18 conceded at Anfield may not sound very bad, but it was a higher figure than all the other teams in the top six, as well as city rivals Everton.More news: Mourinho predicts seven-way fight for Premier League title
Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it. Make no mistake, for teams like Huddersfield success is staying up.
"We did it earlier", Guardiola concluded. I'm going to be courageous and say the game will finish 4-0.
"My dream came true because in my first spell here I didn't have the opportunity to win the Premier League and I came back for that and we did it". I think we're in for plenty of goals and a decent City win. "I'm not going to change the way I want to play". I am backing him to deliver this time around, though.
With Sergio Aguero and Brazilian Gabriel Jesus the options for central striker and the likes of David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and new arrival Bernardo Silva to choose from as attacking midfielders, City have little choice but to attack.More news: Conte To Start 2 New Signings: Predicted Chelsea Line-Up vs Burnley
