Pep Guardiola: Premier League players £20-£25m more expensive

Pep Guardiola: Premier League players £20-£25m more expensive

Chelsea will kick off the defence of their Premier League title when they entertain Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Curiously, Brighton's last home game in the top division of English football was against City in 1983.

Pep Guardiola will resist a tactical shift at Manchester City this season, having backed his raft of big-money singings to fit last season's often stuttering gameplan.

City certainly haven't let up in the transfer window with numerous players going in and out of the Etihad Stadium in the summer months, with a number of familiar faces been replaced by a new roster of new faces.

Undoubtedly, the transfer window has been an active one for clubs in England with all the teams strengthening their squad in anticipation of the 2017/2018 season.

In defence, Azpilicueta was a standout along the back three a year ago, but his versatility means he will likely replace Moses out wide on Saturday. There's a gulf between Albion and City.

City is most pundits' favorites to win the league title, after finishing 15 points behind champion Chelsea last season.

City, as always, haven't been frightened to splash the cash this summer, spending the best part of £130m on three defenders alone....but this is exactly where it was needed.

"We were not able to find a solution with those players".

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting". We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1. We spent, of course, but all the teams spent - except maybe Tottenham.

"Two coaches have been sacked from Chelsea and Leicester after winning the league and I want to avoid this".

The former Spurs star is undoubtedly the best right-back in the Premier League, and his wide range of skills provides Pep with everything he needs from a full-back: Walker's frightening pace combined with really high stamina allows him to get up and down the pitch countless times during matches. "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that". To assess the other teams is not important for us.

Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it. Make no mistake, for teams like Huddersfield success is staying up. While the results didn't always go their way, the Clarets more often than not made things hard for the best teams in the Premier League. "We were focused on the striker scoring goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble".

"Anthony Knockaert seems to be one of Brighton's better players". If the remaining 25% don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play. I considered adding him here, but instead included Salah. Why?

Of those, 167 were on target, making Cech far busier than his goalkeeping rivals.
