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

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

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.

"Six players were out of contract".

Gundogan signed for City a year ago for an estimated fee of £20m but has struggled with injuries during his time at the Etihad, making just 15 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals. "We've tried to buy good defenders but also creative players and strikers to score more goals". We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City.

"It started with Real Madrid and Ronaldo going for £80 million and then Bale for £85 million and everything went more expensive". I'm going to be courageous and say the game will finish 4-0. In fact, it has to be one of the weakest groups of players to be promoted in recent years. But Guardiola didn't have the impact some had expected and his refusal to adapt to the demands of the Premier League or accept criticism of his team prompted some hostility.

Chelsea were sensationally upstaged by Arsenal in last season's FA Cup final and lost to them again in Sunday's Community Shield, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger retains little margin for error.

After spending millions in the window, will the likes of Man United and Man City display nearly ideal football, or will they fail to meet their silverware aspirations this season? "Maybe he'll get minutes in Girona [on August 15]".

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed. But that spurs us even more, everybody writing us off already, so I hope we can prove them wrong". Sooner or later it's going to finish.

The Soccer Saturday pundits provide us with their predictions for who will win the Premier League, make the top for, go down and win the Golden Boot. "We go to sign and other clubs are always going to ask us for more".

City are among the sides that have spent the most this summer, shelling out over €200m on five new players, but Guardiola made it clear such lavish activity was a one-off.

Wagner undoubtedly made the best of what he had last term and they will be relying on another unified team effort this year.

The midfielder scored the goal at Wembley that took Hull City into English football's top flight. I'm honest in my job. 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.

"It's the same pressure as I had last season".

SHIRT SLEEVE SPONSORSThe upcoming campaign will see Premier League clubs allowed shirt-sleeve sponsors for the very first time, although only the right sleeves will be used.

City are the favourites and Guardiola will face some "pointed questions" if his side fail to establish themselves as "English football's dominant force", says Dickinson of the Times.
