Guardiola returns to Man City drawing board

Big-spending Guardiola leads chase of Chelsea

Guardiola returns to Manchester City drawing board

Pundit predicts Manchester City will make light work of Brighton this weekend. However, considering Monaco were the top scorers in Europe last season with 107, that means the younger Silva had a hand in nearly half the goals.

As for Brighton, manager Chris Hughton is confident his side can hold their own in the Premier League by targeting "middle market" signings while the big clubs flex their financial muscle. City lack depth at centre-back where Vincent Kompany, John Stones and Nicolás Otamendi are the only senior options. The trio are not part of Guardiola's plans and, it is understood, are training away from the squad. I will do my best like I did last season. "Kyle is so energetic, Mendy is such an energetic player, and Danilo too".

Jesus also saw two goals disallowed as wave after wave of City attacks broke up on Brighton's back line, until Dale Stephens' error opened up space for a merciless counter-attack and City's opening goal and Dunk's unfortunate intervention settled the match as a contest.

Bucs release embattled kicker Roberto Aguayo
FSU coach Jimbo Fisher suggested past year changes to Aguayo's kicking routine may have contributed to his inconsistency. The former second-round pick is going to have to turn it around quickly if he wants to secure the job.

Pep Guardiola believes that top clubs are forced to pay over the odds for quality players but says the premium is even greater when dealing with Premier League clubs. "But the season that just happened wasn't just about what happened in our box. We just made it for 60-70 percent for the chances we created and that's poor", he said.

"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan.

Burnley - It was a decent season for it last time, but this one will be far tougher and it hasn't signed the quality to keep its status in the Premier League. The head coach has to ensure his side are serious title contenders this season or it could be his last. The big fail now takes one week in football.

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur are trusting in the same formula that swept them to second place last season and must adapt to a new temporary home at Wembley while White Hart Lane is rebuilt. I'm honest in my job.

The same system was deployed by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte in his team's title-winning campaign last season and has since been adopted by a number of other managers, including Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. If the club decides [I am] not able, we are going to take a solution. I feel the same pressure as at Barcelona when I arrived. We have to deal with that and handle that.

Guardiola will not change his style. But we can not forget that when we do something better than last season it's because we've been one year together.
