Guardiola says he's not moved by talk that Man City are favourites

Antonio Conte coaches Chelsea versus Arsenal in the Premier League

Ederson is now expected to step in as Pep Guardiola's first-choice 'keeper at City following Claudio Bravo's underwhelming debut season, for which he was widely criticised by fans and pundits alike. I assure you that. I assure you that because last season we finished contract of five, six players, and for six years Manchester City hadn't bought full-backs.

"I just hope that any competition between us benefits the team, that it inspires both of us to score plenty of goals for City and leads to the club winning lots of matches and trophies".

"It's to try to put them in a better position to win the title".

Chris Hughton insists Brighton can hold their own in the Premier League by targeting "middle market" signings while the big clubs flex their financial muscle.

Guardiola could start with Jesus and Sergio Aguero up front, given he has used a 3-5-2 set-up for much of pre-season, which suggests Walker and Danilo are to be deployed as wing-backs.

Antonio Conte speaks at Chelsea press conference
GETTY Antonio Conte is thought to be unhappy about Chelsea's limited transfer activity this summer

"So yes we'll look at as many good experiences as we can do, and that's for the whole of the season, not just the start".

Forster kept the third-most clean sheets in the Premier League last season, and with a generous opening fixture list which sees Southampton play just one of the top eight from last season until November, Forster will do very well. While it is certain that the 24-year-old will play a pivotal role in Chelsea's title-defence this season, it remains to be seen if he is able to fill the void left by the departure of Diego Costa.

Also worth noting that Burnley's away record last season was awful, and their first five away games are at Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City, so it will be neon impossible to keep clean sheets in these games. Sooner or later it's going to finish. We didn't have full-backs so we had to buy full-backs. I considered throwing in Burnley but they made a fool me last season and I'm going to put faith in Sean Dyche's ability, but if they repeat their away form then they'll struggle. Guardiola is one of the world's super coaches having delivered trophy after trophy at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, playing some of the most impressive football in the history of the game. The group of players are going to stay here for a long time.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season".

There will be a lot of pressure on this man's young shoulders, with a £30m move to Everton making him the most expensive British goalkeeper of all time. You've got to question which teams will make the Premier League a priority over Europe and I think Guardiola would take the Premier League over the Champions League because it's the title missing from his CV.
