City style is reason I signed — Bernardo

City style is reason I signed — Bernardo

Nick Montgomery played with Ryan at the Central Coast Mariners in the last stages of an excellent career in England that was highlighted by 12 seasons at Sheffield United, including one in the Premier League.

As for Pep's other new signings, Kyle Walker, Danilo and Ederson could all make their debuts for the Sky Blues at Brighton, while fans will be watching closely to see how Guardiola juggles his incredible attacking options. His bosses, City's Abu Dhabi-based hierarchy rather than the Catalan axis of chief executive Ferran Soriano and director of football Txiki Begiristain, will not be quite so understanding and accepting of failure if major silverware is not delivered this season. We have to deal with that and handle that.

Guardiola also pointed out City were not alone in the high-spending stakes during a summer which has seen the world transfer record smashed with Neymar's £200.6million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea have their fair share of troubles, but have a bloody-mindedness about them that should get them to a distant second place while Arsenal may have bought their saviour in Alexandre Lacazette.

All three have the pace to change defence into attack quickly, something City lacked in the full-back positions last season. We are here to win the games and titles. "But we try to win the game".

Benitez knows Ashley has form for letting managers take the flak when results turn sour and the former Liverpool manager's relationship with the sportswear tycoon will be a fascinating sub-plot on Tyneside. "The difference is the quality of the players". That was apparent even before being outclassed by them in the Super Cup.

There are no secrets or special tactics in Chris Hughton's side: Brighton will defend deep when necessary but will be intense and efficient when they have the ball.

Tim Carder - Secretary, Brighton & Hove Albion Supporters´ Club "I am old enough to remember the last (and only) time we were in the old First Division, from 1979 to 1983".

His midfield was out of its depth with Paul Pogba - even on this occasion - disappearing yet again.

Chelsea have lost John Terry, Nemanja Matic and, probably, Diego Costa.

"His squad [at Huddersfield] is strengthened as well, so there'll be others that can do that, but his one big asset is his creativity and passing".

Chelsea's squad looks threadbare and will find it tough with European football added to their calendar.

"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".

As a result, they still can't be sure whether they'll be title contenders or Europa League also-rans.

"I am happy to be part of this group", he said. The man cannot stop scoring and he has averaged 25 league goals in the past three seasons. "It Begins" must have more than a hollow ring this time around.
