Guardiola defends Man City's big spending

Manchester City predicted line-up to face Brighton MANCHESTER CITY FC Manchester City predicted line-up to face Brighton

Guardiola will travel to Brighton with new signings Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker and Danilo, although Benjamin Mendy is still working his way back to fitness after a thigh injury.

A player with an exquisite first touch and eye for a pass, many feel he is tailor-made to excel under Guardiola's guidance, and City's open, attacking brand of football was a major reason he decided to make the move to the Etihad.

"Six players were out of contract". We don't have a lot of rules here, but we ask that you don't insult each other personally and treat each other with respect.

Guardiola said the current spike in football transfer spending, which culminated in Neymar's recent world record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros (£200 million, $260 million), had been building for some time.

"But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable". City have had impressive results in preseason when applying the three in the back, with wins over Real Madrid, Tottenham, and West Ham, City have only conceded one goal throughout these three friendlies and scored ten.

"We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we made a decision to put energy in the team for the next five, six years", he said. "If the club decides [I am] not able, we are going to take a solution". But we can not forget that when we do something better than last season it's because we've been one year together. He said that as of now I'm going to have more options in the build-up, to play both short and long balls. "We will maybe change one important player".

Gabriel Jesus hopes competition between himself and Sergio Aguero can drive Manchester City towards success this season.

Dow loses more than 100 points amid North Korea tensions
South Korea's KOSPI fell 1.8 percent to a 9 1/2-week low, taking its losses this week to almost 2.7 percent. United States crude was down 0.9 per cent at $48.16 per barrel, on track for a weekly loss of 2.9 per cent.

"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan.

"This division is far tougher and we'll certainly need all of the experienced heads around us". I'm not going to say we are going to play all the season in that system, we are going to play different systems, but the fundamentals will be the same.

"If you see in the first games [last season] against Sunderland and especially against Steaua Bucharest, between last season and now, it's completely the same".

"So whatever happens at the start of the season - and of course I hope we get off to a flier - we must stay calm and remember that it´s where we are in the table after 38 games that matters, not the first few". I know it's a big responsibility considering I have become one of the most expensive goalkeepers. The pressure it's never a big problem.

"It's a wonderful game for the club and supporters, as a first game in the Premier League, but we have to make sure it's a good day for the team as well".

The Israeli worldwide could be out for the first 12 weeks of the new season.
