Same manager, same tactics, better players - Guardiola lays out Man City blueprint

  • Sky has announced a slew of features that promise to improve Premier League matches

The 23-year-old has impressed in preseason - other than an error in the International Champions Cup defeat to Manchester United - and has already showed the ball skills that Guardiola demands from his keepers.

The City boss says that transfer fees can not continue to grow at the current case and expects them to level off at some point.

"The match against Manchester City, our debut in the Premier League, will also be one of the club´s greatest-ever occasions.I want to see my club competing against the best in the land, and to see some of the best players in the world gracing the turf of the Amex Stadium".

These three full backs will be a huge upgrade from City's full backs last season and will add a huge attacking force and the speed to track back in defense.

"I know how much football means in England".

"If we can keep (captain) Vincent Kompany fit and in the team alongside the new signings, then I think we have everything ready for a very successful 2017/18 campaign".

"Of course, it had an influence on me [the presence of Pep Guardiola here]".

"From my experience, in the beginning of the season the new teams are the toughest ones", he added.

"City were very interested in me, but it was many things that made me sign".

"I saw last season how tough the league is - it doesn't matter who the top teams are". People say in [the] first press conference we are favourites.

"The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time".

"I like the way the team plays, the coach, all the players, and I wanted to come here and learn from them and become a better player. That fact attracted me a lot", he said. "The current players are young and will stay for the future".

"I would like in three or four passes to score a goal, but sometimes it's not possible and you have to move them [the opposition] a little bit more, and because our strikers are not Peter Crouch, our strikers are completely different, they are not strong in the air".

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.

Guardiola: 'Intelligent' Bernardo Silva ready to make immediate impact
Silva's place in the City team has come under threat this season with the £43m signing of namesake Bernardo from Monaco . I don't know, we're going to ask the doctor because, of course, he was injured for a long time.
