Brighton vs. Manchester City: Highlights and recap

Manchester City's Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus warms up ahead of the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on April 27, 2017.

That impressive burst of productivity convinced City manager Pep Guardiola to select the Brazil forward at the expense of Eastlands icon Sergio Aguero at times.

If Tottenham were playing at White Hart Lane I'd have them as champions.

"But with the quality City have got I would expect them to be very strong title contenders".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says the club will rein in its spending for the rest of his time in charge after an outlay approaching $500 million in his first two summer transfer windows.

Many pundits are tipping Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City to have strong seasons, but it's really hard to predict who will take the title.

With Man City spending around £202m on first team players and an astonishing £159m spent exclusively on defenders and goalkeepers, it would appear that Pep Guardiola finally has the right back line and goalie at City.

The Premier League legend said on BBC Sport: "Chelsea I do sense, there is something brewing there, which isn't nice".

"My family and I were fortunate enough to travel across seven states, driving over 2,000 miles, following Manchester City on tour (in America) this summer and we had the most fantastic time".

But where is YOUR team predicted to finish this season according to Football Manager?

"I am happy to be part of this group", he said.

The 21-year-old winger is also a full Germany global and was part of his country's squad at EURO 2016, although he missed the FIFA Confederations Cup through injury, and Sane says his rapid development makes him feel like he is in a film. Clyne is set to miss the start of the season through injury, so Alexander-Arnold has another chance to make a mark.

"You just hope for the opportunity".

"I'm not looking for any sympathy".

After a slow start at Leicester following his move from Birmingham City halfway through the 2015-16 season, Gray is beginning to make his presence felt at the King Power Stadium.

"There's a huge gulf between the Championship and the top Premier League teams and having watched City in pre-season, they look like they are in the mood for a good start".

But, with Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez keen to leave Leicester, there could be an opening for the 21-year-old in Craig Shakespeare's team in the near future.
