Guardiola forecasts end to City spending spree

Guardiola forecasts end to City spending spree”

I expect serious rotation throughout the season with Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Danilo, Nicolas Otamendi and Ilkay Gundogan all to feature heavily.

There should not be any shoehorning of players into unfamiliar roles this season after Guardiola signed three top-level full-backs - Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo - at a combined cost of around £124mn (B5.35bn).

Romelu Lukaku has finally got his wish and moved to a club in the Champions League and will play at the highest level next season. They have working to stregthen their attcking line with the arrival of two strikers this summer. Tom Ince and Christopher Schindler will be other key players for the side.

The Leicester winger is set to start against Wenger's Arsenal when the Premier League season kicks off at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow night. Curiously, City will be their first opponents on their return to the top tier.

Lacazette converted more chances than any other player in Europe's top five leagues last season.

Manager: Chris Hughton has achieved a lot in the three years in charge. With numerous gameplay modes, real players, an optional tablet interface, and full support for physical gamepads, this title is one of the best football games now available on the Google Play Store. Let the season get underway and we'll find out soon enough. Pascal Gross and Markus Suttner have also been brought in.

Back among the elite for the first time in 34 years after finishing second in the Championship, Brighton will not have to wait long for an indication of just how tough it will be to retain that long-prized status.

He led them to a remarkable start - winning their first 10 games in all competitions and beating Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at old Trafford in the process. "They need to make sure they're up for it and ready for it". Fantasy Football Manager (FPL) will allow you to do just that, with this Homemade Apps-made game being designed specifically for the Premier League.

People may have baulked at the price director of football Txiki Begiristain forked out on the full-backs this summer, but it's already looking like an investment that will pay off for the club. When they were relegated to the second tier a year ago, it was expected they will be back sooner or later. Whether Newcastle is instantly relegated seems to depend on whether manager Rafa Benitez will be granted the funds he craves.

Relegation battles have ensued at Selhurst Park in recent seasons, so a more comfortable, mid-table position will be expected under de Boer's leadership. "There's absolutely no doubt about his talent, which I could barely believe with my own eyes".

As of Wednesday evening, Brahim was unsure whether he would be part of the squad travelling to Brighton, or playing for City's Under-23s against Chelsea in Manchester on Friday evening. Dwight Gayle, Matt Ritchie, and Ayoze Perez are names to watch out for.

With Pascal Gross and Markus Suttner signed from Bundesliga side Ingolstadt, Brighton have quickly followed the Premier League trend, creating a multinational squad with a strong European influence.
