Man City 'hottest ticket in town'

Guardiola has added five first-team players courtesy of an estimated £200million spending spree in the close-season, overhauling City's defence in particular.

"People say in the first news conference we are favourites".

"Hopefully Mike can keep his word and we can do what we want to do", he said. We will change one important player, it depends on who we are going to stay.

"It´s going to be tough, very tough". In the next three or four years Manchester City will buy one, two, maybe three players. There´s a gulf between Albion and City.

Manchester City look really strong and they are my tip for the title. Perhaps we´ve got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way.

"He's learning all the time, and I don't think anybody can dispute what a brilliant manager he is", said Hughton of Guardiola.

Having silenced the critics who wrote off him and his team 12 months ago, Wagner will again start this season with few giving Huddersfield a chance on their first appearance in the top flight since 1972.

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

"I think if you see the team last season and this season, the four [pre-season] games we played, the fundamentals are the same", he said.

Sport runs the rule over the Premier League's new boys.

Jose Mourinho has a lot of work on to achieve top four this year and with signings like Romelu Lukaku the hard work may pay off. Manchester City have spent more this summer on full-backs alone than it cost to build the Amex! "Sooner or later it's going to finish", he said.

City have spent around £200 million to strengthen their squad in the close-season with other title contenders including Chelsea and Manchester United.

"I heard yesterday or today, Choupo-Moting also came to England".

"Anthony Knockaert seems to be one of Brighton´s better players".

"If we do something good this season it's because we were together last season, and we know better, and I know better, and they know me better, and that's why it's easy".

Comparisons have been drawn to Thierry Henry, but even Arsenal's prolific striker took time to adjust to English physicality, failing to score in his first eight games after his arrival from Juventus. I wouldn't be surprised if Conte doesn't play him every week initially. "I am pleased with the business City have done in the transfer window so far".

"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind [Chelsea]", Guardiola told a news conference.

Former City man Trevor Sinclair says: "Full backs are a huge part of Pep's teams and they've recruited very well while weakening a rival by getting Kyle Walker from Tottenham, plus strengthened at goalkeeper which was a position that hurt them last season".
