The Catalan manager who is well known for his love of fluid possession oriented brand of football has struggled to replicate this in his first season at the helm of affairs in the English Premier League.

"I think when the other players got their tactics off the manager and it was a little bit hard for them".

These three full backs will be a huge upgrade from City's full backs last season and will add a huge attacking force and the speed to track back in defense.

"Of course now the full-backs are younger, they have energy in their legs and we are going to use them". They've got the best team, they haven't had to buy anybody.

City open their Premier League campaign on Saturday with a trip to newly-promoted Brighton.

"We will try to do our best, not just for this season but for the future and especially the next years".

Exactly six months back on 11th February, Akshay Kumar's Jolly LLB 2 had opened to collections of 13.20 crore at the Box Office. The movie features Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles, with Anupam Kher, and Sana Khan in supporting roles.

He became more expansive in Brighton's promotion last season and it will be interesting to see if he has learned from his previous spell at this level. Twenty-five years of the Premier League and he calls it "the most watched, the most followed all around the world".

There were some promising signs last season - an opening salvo of 10 straight wins, a stunning Champions League victory over Barcelona - but City never found any consistent form.

Guardiola will hope goalkeeper Ederson, acquired from Benfica for £34.9 million, is less error prone than Claudio Bravo, whose dismal season was a major factor in City's failed title challenge. Romelu Lukaku will play every game but Manchester United don't score a lot.

Also worth noting that Burnley's away record last season was awful, and their first five away games are at Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City, so it will be neon impossible to keep clean sheets in these games. I was going to put Chelsea in second but I don't think they've strengthened enough yet.

After bolstering their squad, Guardiola's side - who came third last season - have been made favourites to win the title, but the City manager said he could cope with that burden.

We played 3-4-3 with a diamond, it's such a demanding system, so attacking, but so demanding defensively, and we did it quite well, yet for me it doesn't matter as it's pre-season.

"At Barcelona, I was used to playing like that". This summer we had to do that because we had one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League. 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.
