Why Manchester City are favorites to win the Premier League

Why Manchester City are favorites to win the Premier League

Guardiola looks set to hand the youngster his Premier League debut on Saturday as the Citizens travel to Brighton for the opening weekend of the new season. "For example, hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season". We were not able with those players to find a solution.

City players also have had another season and preseason to work on and adapt to life under Pep and adjust to his tactics.

"We spent the first three months in the bottom places".

"It was the proposal they presented me, this is a club with big ambition to win trophies this season. That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".

TELUS Corporation (TU) Receiving Optimistic Media Opinion, Based On A Study
BidaskClub raised TELUS Corporation from a "buy" rating to a "strong-buy" rating in a research report on Saturday, August 5th. Finally, Bank of America Corp DE boosted its position in shares of TELUS Corporation by 15.2% in the first quarter.

"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind [Chelsea]", Guardiola told a news conference. "I'm calm and I'm ready to help my team".

With Man City spending around £202m on first team players and an astonishing £159m spent exclusively on defenders and goalkeepers, it would appear that Pep Guardiola finally has the right back line and goalie at City. Mendy and Walker will most likely be the starting left and right backs, with Danilo backing both of them up, as he is well suited to play both positions. We try to attack more fluently, and more times maybe this season, but it's a process to do that and sometimes you need a little bit more time. "The market is what it is but sooner or later it is going to finish". I think we´re in for plenty of goals and a decent City win.

"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". Every game is a battle, especially with the teams who arrive in the first four, five or six games - they are so complicated, especially away. Everyone has witnessed the way a Guardiola team can play when Pep has the right players and everyone understands the tactics, as Guardiola has won the Champions League twice with Barcelona and has steamrolled the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich three times.

New signing Benjamin Mendy and long-term injury victim Ilkay Gundogan are unavailable to face Brighton, and Guardiola is wary of the challenge Chris Hughton's side will pose.
