Guardiola: Intelligent Bernardo Silva ready to make immediate Manchester City impact


Many pundits are tipping Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City to have strong seasons, but it's really hard to predict who will take the title. In Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, City will have the most potent tandem of wing backs in the Premier League, whilst Danilo will be no poor cover for Walker should he go down on the right.

And the Belgian central defender, who will mark his 10th anniversary as a City player later this month, said the aim for the new season for Pep Guardiola's side was simple - to win trophies.

"We spoke and I saw last season how tough is this league".

"We constantly see the Chelsea Youth Team and the Manchester City Youth Team win the FA Youth Cup, but we are not seeing that many players come through their system and getting into their first teams, which has to be a real concern".

The Premier League is full of foreign stars after another summer of big-money transfers.

Manager Chris Hughton has assured that his players will show no fear as they take on Manchester City today.

Huddersfield may have signed 11 players but still I still expect them to have a tough experience along with Brighton. The next three or four years City will buy one, two maybe three players. Lukaku will be counted on to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goals but he managed 25 for Everton last season and is now reunited with his former boss at Chelsea. I think it will be a draw. I'm going to be fearless and say the game will finish 4-0.

The financial power of the Premier League means that promotion is usually accompanied by a spending spree to try to stay in the world's richest soccer competition.

Liverpool's squad might struggle to deal with Champions League football and Arsenal should be in the mix but I just think the four above them are stronger.

ESPN's first question was obviously about his price, as they call him "the most expensive goalkeeper ever".

"Keep doing what we've done in the last three games and it should be exciting".

The main problem of the new football season is the absurdity of big-time football: the impossible sums of money, the reckless spending of it, salaries that make your nose bleed from sheer envy, the preposterous self-regard of so numerous players, the self-serving nonsense of the managers.

However, given the way Kane has done it for the last two seasons you'd had to say he's decent value at 3/1, but you'd have to ask whether playing at Wembley is going to effect him. We are here to win games and titles.

"Everyone knows that I stopped my worldwide career, so I had a good break".

'The club was clever with that because we anticipated what we needed to do, ' he added. My first press conference we were favourites and that hasn't changed.
