Guardiola forecasts end to City spending spree

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

Arguments rage up and down the country as the old question "Who will win the League this year" gets banded around offices, pubs, living rooms and via social media, with at least six Premier League teams having more than reasonable shouts....although if you remember Leicester City's memorable feat of two seasons ago, that number is increased to 20!

According to the British media reports, City have spent over 200 million pounds ($259.62 million) on full-backs Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo, goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva.

It has been another strong showing of City's financial muscle but Guardiola insists the club have only paid market rates and such major rebuilding work is a one-off.

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

Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it. Make no mistake, for teams like Huddersfield success is staying up. I don't know, we're going to ask the doctor because, of course, he was injured for a long time.

Across town at Manchester United, Guardiola's old sparring partner Jose Mourinho is also looking to kick on after ending a hard debut season with a silver flourish. Even though he only made 16 appearances last season, Gundogan looked incredible when he was on the pitch. "But that spurs us even more, everybody writing us off already, so I hope we can prove them wrong". Harry Kane is the best finisher with the types of goals he scores so I'd go for him if I had to bet on the nose but I do fancy Lacazette each-way at 10/1. But with Premier League rivals circling, the 21-year-old is unlikely to be short of offers were he to become available.

Trump to direct Lighthizer to assess Chinese intellectual property practices
The North Korean statement pointed to recent military drills out of that command as reason for its newest threat. Trump tweeted Friday that military solutions are "locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

"Everything went more expensive. Here when I get the ball, I always have options of passes, so it gets easier".

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

A mainstay in the wildly successful Man United sides under Alex Ferguson, the ex-England global made 400 league appearances (all for the one club) and a trophy haul that is the envy of pretty much every other Premier League footballer. I am backing him to deliver this time around, though. "We just made it for 60-70 percent for the chances we created and that's poor", he said.

And, if you're so bleeding clever, why don't you ply us with a few of your own predictions for 2017/18. We are here to win games and titles.

"We know better, I know better and they know me better".

2017-18 Premier League under way when they clash at the Emirates Stadium on Friday, August 11, with Nigeria star, Kelechi Iheanacho set to make his first official debut for City. But such was the maturity he showed during his first-team opportunities - most notably in a frenetic 1-1 draw at Manchester United in January - that there are plenty of observers who believe that regular right-back Nathaniel Clyne could soon be under pressure for his place.
