Pep Guardiola claims Premier League spending is 'unsustainable'

City is most pundits' favorites to win the league title, after finishing 15 points behind champion Chelsea last season. "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.

Even though their opponents, Brighton & Hove Albion, had broken their own transfer record three times this window, the Seagulls' outlay was roughly one-tenth that of City - forcing them to mind the gap. We tried to make it a young squad and we did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks.

City manager Pep Guardiola will be under pressure from the start after strengthening his squad with five new signings in the transfer window, costing the club some US$286 million.

We had to be patient first half, they were defending really well. "But we've got quality in the team and eventually it made the difference".

He thought he had stolen the points in a debut cameo against Tottenham before briefly sending the Etihad Stadium wild in the 0-0 derby with Manchester United until the assistant's flag was spotted.

Mendy is likely to be absent on Saturday with a thigh injury, while Silva may start on the bench, having had only a short pre-season after helping Portugal to the Confederations Cup semifinals.

"Hopefully, next season I'll be here, and now we're not going to spend how we have spent this season I assure you that".

"Like every club that's promoted to the Premier League, it's to finish 17th or higher". But then we won at Nottingham Forest (who were then European champions), gained some confidence, put some runs together, and finished well clear of the relegation zone. With the strikers we have - Sergio (Aguero), Raheem (Sterling), Gabriel (Jesus), Bernardo Silva - all of them, they're so young so they're going to stay for the future.

"It is going to finish, it is unsustainable", Guardiola said Friday, a day before the start of the Premier League season.

"We have to learn to attack better if teams play in that way, the big teams have to handle those situations. So, I didn't think twice when I got the proposal from City".

In a novelty for the 2017-18 season, players suspected of diving will face retrospective disciplinary action that could result in two-game suspensions.

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.

"Keep doing what we've done in the last three games and it should be exciting".

Pep Guardiola has told Ederson Moraes to forget about his expensive price tag and enjoy being Manchester City's new No. 1.

Fourth last season, Liverpool have signed relatively modestly, adding Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson to their ranks. "But we were not able to achieve what we were looking for".
