City's mega-spending is a one-off, insists Guardiola

City's mega-spending is a one-off, insists Guardiola”

"For example, hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

Instead of battling for the Premier League title, City ended up battling for fourth place with Liverpool and Arsenal, while Tottenham and Chelsea fought for first and second.

Still, it wasn't all bad. Stewart Robson shares his thoughts on how Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus should be utilised by Pep Guardiola this season. We are here to win games and titles.

"It's important, but it's not absolutely essential to get the season off to a winning start". It speaks volumes that all four of those players have now left the club.

City has spent about 200 million pounds ($260 million) this offseason, mostly on full backs Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, to follow on from about 170 million ($207 million) last summer. "The difference is the quality of the players", Guardiola explained.

"Sometimes you must accept this insane transfer market", Conte told British broadcaster Sky Sports, "and sometimes you must accept different decisions". If the club decides [I am] not able, we are going to take a solution. "And, in some ways, I'm glad it's not the Premier League holding that particular record".

Lukaku isn't the only player being reunited Mourinho, who also convinced former club Chelsea to sell Nemanja Matic to United.

Back in 1979 I missed Brighton's first game in the First Division against Arsenal because I was on holiday (blame the parents for that one as I was only 11 at the time!); this time I will miss the Manchester City game because I am on a family holiday (my fault this time but I wasn't even thinking of the Premier League when we booked it a year ago!). But then there was in 2008 when we were a League One side, City were newly-crowned the "world's richest club' already with many star players - and we beat them in the League Cup at our humble Withdean Stadium home". Guardiola has identified that, to be successful in the Premier League, teams must be prepared to get the ball forward quickly.

Asked about extra pressure, he added: "It's the same pressure as I had last season". He has to be strong but, of course, his quality is ideal for the way we want to play.

"I think we will try to attack more fluently, and more times maybe this season, but it's a process to do that and sometimes you need a little bit more time". When I'm caught offside, she's always sending me messages. If not, the Spaniard could come under fire from City fans.

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

But all the signs point toward a better season, especially with the improvements in defense. "I am pleased with the business City have done in the transfer window so far".

WORST CASE: The defensive problems remain, and City go another season without a trophy.
