Why Manchester City are favorites to win the Premier League

Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker, Mendy and Danilo have all joined, giving his squad a more vibrant, energetic look.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Guardiola claimed it was necessary to reinvigorate City's ageing squad but he will only seek to add one or two new faces in forthcoming seasons.

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

After bolstering their squad, Guardiola's side - who came third last season - have been made favourites to win the title, but the City manager said he could cope with that burden.

Majority of Americans support ObamaCare
The Democrats' national bus tour is motoring through Iowa , targeting vulnerable House Republicans who voted to repeal Obamacare . Trump is, very likely, aware of three things when it comes to the Republican Party. "Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare! ".

With Man City spending around £202m on first team players and an astonishing £159m spent exclusively on defenders and goalkeepers, it would appear that Pep Guardiola finally has the right back line and goalie at City. "I signed a new contract and then I chose to stay, to work for this club, and then to try and give every day 120 per cent in the work for my club, for my players". When I am not playing or training, I watch football all the time'.

"I'm so grateful - thanks so much to the club for picking him up", the Spaniard said, according to ESPN.

In spite of City's lavish summer spending, which has seen the club surpass the £220m barrier, Guardiola anticipates a tough start for the new season.

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect", he said on Friday. We are here to win the games and titles.

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

Facebook tries to enter China incognito
App Colorful Balloons was released through a local company , without any hints on the connection with Facebook. The Chinese app even uses the messaging platform WeChat for connecting users in place of Facebook's network.

And it has been suggested that he may turn his attentions to an audacious swoop for Busquets, who has established himself as one of the best of his kind in world football. The pressure it's never a big problem. I'm honest in my job.

Both Mendy and Walker are very attacking full backs, which should suit the Guardiola system well this season, as both Mendy and Walker had 5 assists in their respected leagues last season. I feel the same pressure as at Barcelona when I arrived.

"People say in my first press conference we are favourites".

"Close to the box, he has the quality to score a lot of goals and he's a fighter too, so he's going to help us during the season".
