Pep Guardiola, title predictions, Arsenal kit deal

Pep Guardiola, title predictions, Arsenal kit deal

City dominated last season by playing possession-based football featuring a number of tactical innovations and it will be fascinating to see to what extent their rivals seek to emulate the approach of Guardiola.

Arsenal legend, Martin Keown has predicted the English Premier League (EPL) clubs that will finish in the top-four this season.

City have already banked one trophy after beating Chelsea 2-0 in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.

"However, individually the players can improve", Guardiola said during the Sky Sports Premier League launch.

"But Gundogan I like as a player with a special feeling in the box". Manchester United, who are with Adidas, earn £75 million a year in a 10-year agreement signed in 2014. From next season it will be quicker, much slicker, and we will be closer to cracking the communication to make sure fans in the stadium and at home know what is going on.

The 24-year-old England global, who helped City win the Premier League title last term after joining from Everton in 2016, is nominally a centre-back.

"John [Stones], I think he can play there but I don't know".

But while City begin the campaign as firm favourites after their record-breaking title campaign last season, they will be well aware of the threat posed by Juergen Klopp's improving Liverpool and the rest of the big six. There was a feeling that whenever we won the league and you came back into the first training sessions everybody was a little bit lax - a little bit more smiles and happiness but a little bit less committed.

"I've got to be honest". Teams that just wanted it more could actually hurt us. "We realise this is precious and we want to hold on to it".
