Guardiola: City Spending Cannot Be Sustained


"But as much as I can I will try to help the team to reach our target and tonight we needed this win as everybody knows the importance of the first game for confidence and we keep going".

Wenger added. "I think we have a good level of physical preparation".

"For all the football tragics and fantasy football geeks out there, and we know there are plenty, we've created a NZF - EPL Fantasy League", said Farrow.

Brighton was very convincing in the Championship last season but the step up to the Premier League is a big one.

The 28-year-old appeared to push for a move last month by reiterating his desire to play in the Champions League, but there is a renewed optimism in north London that he will now stay.

Guardiola anticipates that he'll see an improvement in his defence but insists they need to be better at the other end of the pitch too if they are to compete for the Premier League.

Giroud came off the bench with Arsenal trailing 3-2 in Friday's Premier League curtain-raiser at the Emirates Stadium and after fellow substitute Aaron Ramsey equalised, he headed in an 85th-minute victor.

"He's [Lukaku] had a good pre-season".

"The goals we conceded, we can work to get rid of that".

Mourinho said: "I think everybody is in Europe".

"After that, we get the efficiency".

Wayne Rooney returns to Everton eyeing the two goals he needs to reach 200 in the Premier League, and will face opening opponents against whom he has scored five times in the top flight including a previous brace in 2012.

The arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku have also improved the squad.

Unsurprisingly it takes Manchester United and Manchester City stars Paul Pogba and Sergio Aguero less than one complete match to buy the average property in Manchester.

Craig Shakespeare's efforts to guide Leicester to stability last season earned him the job on a permanent basis.

"I have conditions to deliver a better team than I did in the first season".

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season". The Foxes finished 12th last season and will be hoping to better that position once again.

"This time, we are all in the same basket".

He said: "It's not because I have always done it that I am going to do it".
