Pep Guardiola Unmoved By Manchester City Favorite Tag

The Ivorian believes his team are gradually adapting to the Spaniard's system

"The difference [this year] is the quality of the players".

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. I lived that last season. The youngster seems poised to take the gloves from Bravo and become City's no. 1 this term.

City finished 15 points behind eventual English top flight champions Chelsea last season, and have spent much of the summer reshaping their first-team squad for a better bash at the Premier League title this time around.

Meanwhile, Eliaquim Mangala being sat alongside Bravo conjured memories of another of City's many forgotten men. We didn't attack the next line in the proper way but that is normal in this part of the season. Added to that, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane were also on the bench, and so was £43m Bernardo Silva, a late sub for Aguero, when Sane had replaced Danilo with 22 minutes left on the clock. Having hit second place after a November win over Southampton, the club had got itself into a deep rut of appalling form that had carried them to the very edge of the relegation zone.

The attacking duo of Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero have formed a lethal partnership, as was evident in the pre-season. Wilfried Bony should in all possibility be on the way out, not that it would affect the Manchester club in any way.

City controlled the latter stages of the game, but were unable to score a 3rd goal, as Citysettled for a 2-0 win on their first game of the season.

With Ederson between the sticks and Kompany placed in the middle of the back three along side Otamendi and Stones, the defence looks as solid as any other strong side in the league.

National Football League could still investigate Ezekiel Elliott bar incident
At the time, Elliott was a new member of the Cowboys, having been drafted fourth overall following a stellar career at Ohio State. The threat from the league means that Elliott needs to stay out of trouble.

Of the trio that have been brought in so far, Kyle Walker and Danilo started while Benjamin Mendy recovers from injury.

Stephens lost possession on halfway and City raced through an unset defence with De Bruyne finding Silva, whose instant pass into Aguero allowed the master marksman to take a touch and finish.

"We were stable, we concede just one shot after one corner and after that nothing happened".

"He then has the impossible task of working the likes of Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan into the line-up".

Here, we predict who will be playing in the Championship this time next year - and who will narrowly survive. "It's normal that the players and supporters are going to be celebrating for a period of time, but we have had to come down to reality", Brighton boss Hughton said.

Ederson added that the opportunity to work under Guardiola played a significant role in persuading him to sign for Manchester City.
