Guardiola returns to Man City drawing board

Playing three at the back may enable Guardiola to associate Aguero and Jesus in attack, after he generally used a single-striker system last season following Jesus's arrival in January. The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at Valencia.

Guardiola has strengthened his defence this summer, bringing in three younger full-backs in Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, and a new goalkeeper in Ederson - as well as signing midfielder Bernardo Silva. I know that the manager is the same and that I will learn a lot from Guardiola and the other players.

While City are still open to offers for him, Guardiola is involving Mangala with the first-team squad and the France defender could yet stay at the club.

The Premier League legend said on BBC Sport: "Chelsea I do sense, there is something brewing there, which isn't nice". "But the season that just happened wasn't just about what happened in our box".

Although many still believe Pep will continue with his beloved 4-3-3, the additional formation will give City some flexibility next season, and they can use it in big games to use the element of surprise, such as the Manchester Derby. "We just made it for 60-70 percent for the chances we created and that's poor", he said.

The Pentagon declined to provide any details but said that all operations are conducted in accordance with global law. But in recent years Beijing has managed to weaken regional resistance by courting some ASEAN members.


As for Brighton, manager Chris Hughton is confident his side can hold their own in the Premier League by targeting "middle market" signings while the big clubs flex their financial muscle. I'm honest in my job.

"People say in my first press conference we are favourites". Hopefully the work we did last season - when being champions was not possible - we can see it this season because the work is done.

Guardiola will not change his style. They both have their certain way of managing and how they want to play but it's positive.

But we can not forget that when we do something better than last season it's because we've been one year together.

Brighton won promotion to the Premier League through the automatic places last season, ending a 34 year run of football outside England's top flight. Danilo is a bit more defensive minded than Mendy and Walker but is still very good at keeping possession and holding onto the ball, which will suit City well when they are dominating possession and trying to break down their opponent.
