  • Fantasy Premier League Tips: Five Manchester City players you must pick

Taking its cue from Spanish outlet Onda Cero, Talksport says that Guardiola - who was instrumental in developing Busquets during his time in charge at the Camp Nou - now wants to bring the veteran midfielder to the Etihad.

"It's very hard when you see the spending of some clubs in the summer, Manchester United of course and Chelsea who will be right up there". I think it will be a draw. This led to the wheels falling off and from then onwards, they struggled to catch leaders Chelsea who went on to win the title comfortably.

He has experimented with playing three centre halves during pre-season and at present he only has three - Vincent Kompany, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi - that he trusts. 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. Our fans really get behind us and they're going to step it up even more because they know we need them even more.

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect. 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.

Meanwhile, Guardiola claims there will be no immediate repeat of this summer's lavish spending at Manchester City.

After surrendering 39 goals last season, Man City made it a top priority to address the backend this off-season, and they did exactly that with the acquisitions of Ederson Moraes in goal and defenders Kyle Walker and Danilo. You're not going to go there and think: "Oh my God, I don't fancy this.". "City have had the luxury of buying three world class full-backs, I don't believe Pep will make the same mistakes, and that's why I'm banking on Manchester City". Manchester is a bit different from the city I used to live in - it's colder!

"We needed to do that because it was one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League".

The biggest competition to Manchester City this season could be from Chelsea and Manchester United, who are each going off at +325 to win the Premier League.

After two months of summer holidays, hundreds of millions of pounds spent in the transfer window and a intense pre-season training programme, soccer clubs vying for the Premier League title 2017/18 better be ready to hit the ground running.

On the domestic front, Manchester United signed Romelu Lukaku in a deal that could amount to B£90million while Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton have also paid some big fees.

"We played good games against four wonderful teams".

City paid Portuguese side Benfica £34.7 million for the Brazilian, making him the second-most expensive goalkeeper in history behind Juventus' Gianluigi Buffon.

He added: "But we prefer to be aggressive without the ball, it's the same as last season".

"If you see in the first games [last season] against Sunderland and especially against Steaua Bucharest, between last season and now, it's completely the same. We didn't buy full-backs for five, six years", said Guardiola.
