Guardiola hopeful of Gundogan return next week

Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United are all looking to bridge the gap this year in what looks like an open title race.

City were many bookmakers' favourites for the title last season but finished 15 points behind champions Chelsea and Guardiola said he gives little attention to such labels and claimed he felt under no more pressure despite a trophyless debut campaign.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that summer signing Benjamin Mendy will not be fit in time for this weekend's season-opening trip to Brighton & Hove Albion.

"We know it's going to be a special day because it's the first Premier League game at the Amex, and the first Premier League game for the club". Walker and Mendy also earned more assists individually (5) than all Sagna, Zabaleta, Kolarov and Clichy combined.

Guardiola will hope the well-publicised woe of Claudio Bravo has been addressed with the signing of Ederson from Benfica.

World-record signing Paul Pogba will be expected to finally deliver on his undoubted potential in a more attacking role, and while 19-year-old Marcus Rashford continues to excite as he develops.

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.

I just think Manchester City have strengthened in all the right areas where they needed to.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

"Buying from the same league is more hard".

The Premier League is full of foreign stars after another summer of big-money transfers. As strong going forward as he was at the back, Cole was just as home in Arsenal's Invincibles side as he was in Jose Mourinho's all-conquering Chelsea team.

Pep explained City's heavy investment, saying, "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".

Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has been mentioned as a possible target despite the fact he penned permanent terms at the Allianz Arena back in April but the boss will need to move fairly soon with the new season about to get under way.

That mark was the league's fifth worst and significantly more than their key rivals.

Romelu Lukaku looks to be the physical presence with a goal-scoring pedigree needed to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack. I considered throwing in Burnley but they made a fool me last season and I'm going to put faith in Sean Dyche's ability, but if they repeat their away form then they'll struggle.

The 18 conceded at Anfield may not sound terrible, but it was a higher figure than all the other teams in the top six, as well as city rivals Everton.

"If they survive this year, the rest I'm sure will start to take care of itself".
