Guardiola: Intelligent Bernardo Silva ready to make immediate Manchester City impact

GFX Premier League top four betting

The coup of luring Pep Guardiola to the Etihad Stadium was supposed to herald an era of success for Manchester City but the Spanish tactician now knows exactly why the Premier League is so tough to win.

Guardiola, a former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager, has yet to win a trophy since taking charge of City at the start of last season.

However, with the signing of Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, I would expect Pep to go back to the 3-5-2.

Such expenditure has raised eyebrows in some quarters, but Guardiola insists the expensive revamp of his squad was necessary... Plenty of things will be able to be derived from the match, from tactics to player performances.

All three have the pace to change defence into attack quickly, something City lacked in the full-back positions last season.

Conyers, Dems warn against attack on N. Korea
He went on to say "only absolute force can work" on someone as, quote, "bereft of reason" as President Trump . Zakaria said , "What you have in Donald Trump is something absolutely extraordinary".

"People say in the first news conference we are favourites". We create always more than the opponent.

With rivals Manchester United flexing their muscles in the transfer market, the capture of the France worldwide would put down a maker for the red half of the city that the Citizens can match anything coming out of Old Trafford. In the market we will see what happens until the end of August.

The City boss didn't specify if they would be incomings or outgoings, but is known to want another attacker and a centre-back to further strengthen his squad.

Another season without silverware will raise serious doubts as to whether he really is the man to carry City to the summit of European football for the first time.

"We are going to play both systems".

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt calling off divorce
This also gave an indication that the former couple is taking things lightly and in the end, they might consider reconciling. Jolie is allegedly regretting her decision to split from Pitt: "She's still so in love with him".

The Portugal global was given extended leave after appearing at the Confederations Cup for his country but Guardiola was impressed as he made his City debut from the bench against the Hammers. I like that. He is a humble guy - he's so intelligent, which is a huge quality.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season. We didn't buy full-backs for five, six years", said Guardiola. "I am so grateful to my physios to control the amount of work".

"Last season at my first press conference", Guardiola told his pre-match press conference.

Guardiola added: "So being favourites this season means nothing".

Liverpool are hopeful of keeping Phillipe Coutinho at the club and it is likely that they will do so, but the Merseyside club - whose only big-name move was the acquisition of Mohamed Salah - will be another team hoping that existing players such as Phillipe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Leroy Sane produce their best consistently if they are to have a shot at the league. My guess is that Swansea City will join them. "[The current players] are young and will stay for the future".

Alvaro Morata admits Chelsea transfer doubts before Antonio Conte phone call
No wonder the Italian coach cuts a frustrated figure heading into the start of Chelsea's Premier League title defence. They have a lot of matches now and that means there's not the time to work like Conte wants [on the training pitch].

Prior to the last season, the buzz was all around two of the highest-profile managers in the world arriving to do battle in Manchester and although that buzz has now gone, expectations have only been heightened as the duo splashed the cash on their team. Harry Kane is the best finisher with the types of goals he scores so I'd go for him if I had to bet on the nose but I do fancy Lacazette each-way at 10/1.
