Pep Guardiola promotes Mancunian wonderkid to Manchester City first team

Guardiola's men have impressed in pre-season and are favourites to win the Premier League

"I think sooner or later it is going to finish", he said.

Back in June, Guardiola said in an interview with El Matí de Catalunya Radio, "There's an English kid, Phil Foden, that looks great".

As a result the 46-year-old boss is under pressure to win something this season and Distin believes if the club can fix its defensive problems they are contenders for the title.

"But you can see we have quality in the team and in the second half it made a big difference".

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

"It was the proposal they presented me, this is a club with big ambition to win trophies this season".

Although one could say that there was next to learning curve for Conte then as he marched to the Premier League title with no hiccups along the way.

The trip, announced in April, was recently confirmed by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who met in Manila with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson , the Sydney Morning Herald reported .

"According to local reports tourism is on the rise and it will get a massive boost from this", George explained. We saw this weekend what happened in many games. But given where Brighton have come from in the past two decades, the challenge of staying int he Premier League doesn't seem insurmountable and isn't as daunting as having to survive as a club.

Prior to the last season, the buzz was all around two of the highest-profile managers in the world arriving to do battle in Manchester and although that buzz has now gone, expectations have only been heightened as the duo splashed the cash on their team. "But one we can do".

City won far more convincingly on Saturday than the score suggests, even though they had to wait until the 70th minute to open the scoring through Sergio Aguero. It doesn't make an influence on me, maybe for others it does. "I was there with my mom and my sister and I could go and touch the grass, climb over the little fences there". Those were the good times.

Hughton hopes to bring the good times back but is also eager to write new history when asked if he's now glad to get Brighton's grand day out of the way.

His fullbacks will be crucial to that game plan, with former Tottenham defender Kyle Walker providing the pace out wide so obviously missing last season. I was manager of Barcelona and Bayern Munich so I can handle that situation.

"The first game of a season is always complicated", he said. "Today in the boxes we were flawless".
