There have been five major new signings in Ederson, Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva and Danilo, and further additions have not been ruled out.

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect", he said on Friday.

"We make good things last season with the player we had", he said.

Here, we take a closer look at the Amex Stadium clash.

"We needed to do that this summer because it was one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League".

"Our average is 24, so it means a lot for the future of the Club".

"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".

"We did it earlier, so we were lucky because now it would be so much more expensive with what has happened in the last weeks".

"The Club was clever to do that because we anticipated what we needed after last season".

"If we do something good this season it's because we were together last season, and we know better, and I know better, and they know me better, and that's why it's easy". His composure and ball-playing was supposed to stabilise the heart of the defence, but his inability to catch up with the high expectations after his heavy transfer fee cost both Manchester City and the player himself for that matter.

But the former Ivory Coast worldwide who won who won the Champions League and two La Liga titles in three years playing under Guardiola at the Nou Camp reckons that the players are finally buying into the manager's ideology and want to win following that template.

"I think when the other players got their tactics off the manager and it was a little bit hard for them". If John Stones can develop more this season under Guardiola, and Kompany can avoid long term injuries, then City may have a more consistent defense for the upcoming season compared to last season.

"In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players".

"We didn't have full-backs and you have to buy full-backs", the Spaniard added.

It will be interesting to see how Pickford deals with this pressure, and it is important to note that Everton play Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United in their first five fixtures, so it be a big ask to keep clean sheets in these games.

"It started a little bit with Madrid signing Cristiano and Bale. More often than not, he finds a way to win, which is another reason I make United slight favourites [to win the title]", Shearer told BBC Sport. Now Neymar. But it's going to finish.

Yaya Toure believes Manchester City have started the adoption process of the philosophy which manager Pep Guardiola likes to play. Two City players are on the list, and we've also added the comments from Cox about them. "The full backs are young, Mendy, Kyle, Danilo".
