Guardiola wants Man City to play like Barca - Toure

City still appears too dependent on Vincent Kompany, its injury-prone center back and captain, while a new holding midfielder to replace 34-year-old Yaya Toure will probably be Guardiola's priority next summer.

Adrian Clarke comments: "One of the most appealing factors of a 3-5-2 is the potential for strikers Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero to partner one another in a fluid twin strikeforce".

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is close to full-fitness after recovering from a long-term injury with manager Pep Guardiola hoping to include the Germany worldwide in the squad for next week's friendly against Girona.

City are traveling to a training camp in Spain and will face La Liga side Girona, three days after their Premier League opener at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

"Because I don't think last season the players he had were the type of players that he wanted so you have to rebuild the team around his project and the way he wants to play - it's a tough job for him". Actually, this Premier League might not be as scary as it first appeared!

"There's a huge gulf between the Championship and the top Premier League teams and having watched City in pre-season, they look like they are in the mood for a good start".

Rumor: Joss Whedon Is Completely Redoing Justice League's Ending
In fact, Affleck said he thinks that things are finally starting to work and DC is getting things right as they move forward. Incredible but true, the Justice League will be released finally on our screens in a few months, on November 15, precisely.

"We want the fans to enjoy it and we try to do our best". His bosses, City's Abu Dhabi-based hierarchy rather than the Catalan axis of chief executive Ferran Soriano and director of football Txiki Begiristain, will not be quite so understanding and accepting of failure if major silverware is not delivered this season.

It was the inevitable reaction to feeble title challenges that saw Guardiola's City finish 15 points behind the victorious Chelsea side in third place and Mourinho's United drift over the line nine points further adrift. We have to deal with that and handle that.

'If we don't win the games then maybe we're not here any more.

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo all arrived at the Etihad along with keeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva.

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. I think it will be a draw. "Sooner or later it's going to finish", he said. I don't know, we're going to ask the doctor because, of course, he was injured for a long time.

Possibly, the first game of the season may be the best time to play Manchester City, particularly at the Amex. But not what happened this summer. "We needed to do that because four or five players were out of contract". Losing such a key player would hamper Juergen Klopp's hopes of using his second full season at Anfield to show his upbeat demeanor can be matched with silverware.
