I'm not under extra pressure this year — Pep

12 Agosto 2017

Pep Guardiola's side open their Premier League campaign at newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, where they will aim to bounce back from a trophyless 2016-17.

The Citizens had to settle for third in the Premier League after failing to launch a serious title challenge and their Champions League hopes ended at the last-16 stage.

It didn't really begin at all for City and Guardiola last season, which is why the pressure has increased ahead of 2017-18; a second successive season without a trophy would be unthinkable, not only for City's hugely ambitious owners, but also for the club's manager, who boasts a CV that is all about winning.

"But there's no doubt that the level of transfer fees have increased dramatically".

On that infamous day when Brighton saved themselves from dropping out of the Football League together back in May 1997 with a desperate draw at Hereford, Bloom was in Las Vegas at a poker tournament.

Spurs ought to round out the top four, if they retain their players, while I foresee troubling campaigns for Manchester United and Liverpool.

Mangala is still regarded enough for Serie A giants Juventus to be keen on taking him on loan, per Paul Hetherington of the Daily Star.

Signed for £11 million from Charlton Athletic just eight months ago, the 19-year-old winger quickly caught the eye at Everton with some scintillating displays in his eight league appearances last season. But if he wants me to play up front alone, it's his decision. "Sead Kolasinac is also is in England now; I met him already in London", Sane said. "Since I started playing regularly in the Bundesliga it all happened so fast".

Swansea boss Paul Clement beat off several other top-flight sides to land Abraham and he expects the move to pay rich dividends as the youngster aims to prove he has a long-term future at Chelsea.

City may be giving Mangala another chance to prove himself, but Nasri is set for the exit, according to Jackson: "Samir Nasri, Wilfried Bony and Jason Denayer are all set to leave as they are not involved with the main group".

So how will Guardiola approach this new test of his credentials?

Brighton have been busy in the transfer market themselves since securing promotion from the Championship after two excellent seasons for Chris Hughton's team. We did well for the three seasons we survived there, getting to the FA Cup final.

"It's a big competition, lots of people and watching, so maybe it was an important match in my career. Hopefully she doesn't understand it better than me". We have to deal with that and handle that. Meanwhile, the catchphrase seemed odd, given the club was in the midst of its most successful period, having won five major trophies in four years prior to Guardiola's arrival. No more would City judge themselves against domestic rivals; instead they would measure their success against Barcelona, Bayern and Real Madrid and not only was Guardiola going to take them there, but he would do it in style.
