Arsenal v Leicester City – Huge Blow Ahead Of Premier League Opener Posted by Daniel Jenkins

"Danilo is 26, (Benjamin) Mendy is 23, Bernardo (Silva) is 22, Ederson is 23, so we bought players who are going to be stable for the next years".

"A dynamic centre-forward capable of making clever runs, playing in teammates and shooting unexpectedly from tight angles, Gabriel seems flawless to play upfront in Pep Guardiola's system, to the extent that he could displace Sergio Agüero". They'll need to rest him for the lesser games with the Champions League. Guardiola is a believer in possession-based attacking, so Brighton fans can expect a Premier League bow involving a lot of work off the ball.

Gundogan made 16 appearances for City last season before suffering cruciate ligament damage in his knee last December.

"I never complained for one bad game or bad defeat, making excuses, never, even in Germany I never said that, never in my life I make an excuse about what happened". The Seagulls then lost out in the play-offs three years out of four, before gaining promotion as Championship runners-up last season.

City's defence will be drastically different to the side that kicked off last season when City beat Sunderland 2-1 in Guardiola's first game in charge. We didn't have full-backs so we had to buy full-backs.

Another player with a lot to prove, the Chelsea loanee needs to show he is Premier League class - something he has not had chance to do at Stamford Bridge.

Points from a goalie can be earned by keeping clean sheets, saving penalties, and the usual bonus point system, so it is important to choose the right player between the sticks. "This group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City".

There's no outstanding favourite and this is the most exciting season. I assure you that.

"For us there are some great examples of teams that have gone up and stayed up". I backed them last season when I think the players struggled to buy into it. The goalkeeper will always be the question mark but he has a team that suits his style now.

So as the Premier League season gets underway this weekend, I pick out a few ones to watch for the coming season.

The three that have come up will be in the mix and I think West Brom could struggle if they can't get players in, but I think Tony Pulis will make signing to keep them safe. All the money I was putting into the club prior to getting planning (for the Amex) was pretty much worthless if we didn't get it.

I don't see Jesus being as prolific and might have to play out wide with Aguero central, so they will share the City goals.

"But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable".
