Taking A Closer Look At Pep Guardiola's Manchester City This Season

Pep Guardiola paired Gabriel Jesus and Aguero in attack, with new arrivals Kyle Walker and Danilo providing support from the flanks in a 3-5-2 system.

But the hosts were delivered a lesson in the Premier League's ruthlessness with 20 minutes to go as City finally went ahead.

Sane, who cost City a reported fee that could rise to £46.5 million (A$76.73 million), scored five goals in the Premier League as City ended Pep Guardiola's first season in charge without a trophy.

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

"The first game (of the season) is always complicated, especially with what happened this weekend". We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks. I'm very excited to see what pace looks like from a fullback and surely he will provide it. City run very deep, and with attacking titles on the domestic and European front, he will need that depth - but so will his adversaries, and they will not have as much cover to utilise.

"Brighton were coming to the end of a four-year stint with the big boys, their only period in the top flight. Last season in my first press conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed".

It is that failure of our justice system to adequately respond to crisis that is usually a recipe for greater conflict. The commission is headed by Justice Biobele Georgewill of the Port Harcourt division of the Court of Appeal.

"City too were beset with problems in those dark days. We got the goal because we were patient". The penultimate game of the season was at the Goldstone Ground, Brighton's ramshackle stadium until 1997.

The twin towns of Brighton and Hove became a city in 2000 with the Queen bestowing the status as part of the millennium celebrations. "In tumultuous circumstances, Luton pulled off the great escape with an infamous 84th minute victor from Radomir Antic, thus relegating City alongside Brighton". He led the league in assists last yer with 18 and I expect him to lead the league again.

Here's what they have to say about one of our new boys...

"It Begins" was all about City entering football's platinum elite, yet there was a hitch: Chelsea also appointed a pretty decent coach in Antonio Conte, while Mauricio Pochettino was developing an exciting young team at Tottenham, Jurgen Klopp was revitalising Liverpool and Jose Mourinho was back in town - literally - having been appointed as manager at Manchester United.

"It is not easy to attack 10 players there", Guardiola said.

The former Barcelona manager believes that he has put up a squad that will not need huge additions in the coming years.
