Villa backs Guardiola's City to retain Premier League title

25 July 2018

City unveiled their new away strip on Tuesday, saying that it pays homage to their play-off final win at Gillingham in 1998/99, which saw them gain promotion to Division One.

"Maybe one will come, maybe not, we'll see, but at the moment we have a good enough squad".

"If we are going to compare November, December, January, comparing the position, we are going to lose all the comparisons with what we have done last season". That's the most important thing to arrive in April and May and be there for the title.

Whether Pep will entrust Cocu with the development of Nmecha, a striker with great potential, remains to be seen and there is likely to be plenty of interest from other clubs in the England youth worldwide if City are open to a loan.

"But football, when you feel you are exhausted and the players don't follow you, even if I have the contract, I will speak with the people about it and we are going to find a solution".

City finished 19 points clear of Manchester United in second, scoring a record 106 goals, and secured 32 league victories.

"When Liverpool believe they need these kind of players, it its because they believe it is the best for them. I understand the money completely", Guardiola said. If they believe it's the best for them, it's flawless for them.

"All the contenders will be stronger".

"So the level was here, and now it is here, and every team tries to do better and better". "Nobody knows what will happen this season".

Guardiola has only brought in £60 million Riyad Mahrez from Leicester in the close season but remains happy with the nucleus of the squad which saw him dominate the Premier League last term.

The German recently defended his new-look approach by declaring that he has had to change with the market in order to improve upon an already "really good squad" as he targets a Premier League title challenge.

"I'm more physical and I'm working hard - hopefully I can get to where I want to go. We'll see on the pitch". "But I'll do my best to stay this time together".
