Man City boss Pep Guardiola: Premier League spending is unsustainable

Hughton has insisted Brighton must ignore any gulf in financial clout however, citing Burnley and Bournemouth as examples of how to carve out a Premier League niche on a budget.

Guardiola struck a satisfied tone when discussing his raft of fresh full-backs and their ability to have a transformative effect on City's play this season.

"Of course now the full-backs are younger, they have energy in their legs and we are going to use them".

Guardiola had said last season that he wanted more English players at City but he has only added defender Kyle Walker from Tottenham and said the domestic transfer market is even crazier than Europe and the rest of the world. One of their 15 draws came last season but was at Turf Moor, which also witnessed 10 of their 11 league wins for the season.

"Last season at my first press conference", Guardiola told his pre-match press conference.

The 35-year-old was the only United player to get into double figures in the league.

Both Lukaku and Matic represented more than just regular signings - by hijacking Chelsea's bid for the Belgian striker and then weakening the defending champions existing squad by securing Matic, Mourinho sent out a warning sign to the rival clubs and further underlined his title-winning aspirations.

Summer after summer for years and years, it's been rumored Arsenal would splash some cash and sign a world-class striker. But not what happened this summer.

And when asked this week whether it would difficult to hold onto their crown without more signings, he said, "Yes very hard". I'm not looking for sympathy. "We are trying to improve.

"During my time at Juve I didn't score more than 20 goals a year but I won every title except the Champions League".

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. I saw him on the TV last season, but it will depend on how he and the other players adjust to the Premier League. "This group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City".

"Some, okay, have the luck to play Tuesday or Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday, but in the end the same number of matches".

THE Premier League title race is wide open, according to former Socceroo Robbie Slater. That tally was only bettered by Harry Kane, Alexis Sanchez and Lukaku. Morata does already have one sub appearance under his belt for the Blues. Bacary Sagna was solid for a while, but fell off a cliff in 2016-17.

Mourinho acknowledged this week that Real Madrid's Gareth Bale was out of reach after the Welshman started for the Spanish side in their 2-1 European Super Cup win over United. Everton has struggled to find an answer at keeper since Tim Howard's prime three or four years ago.

"It is the price that must be paid for such a large transfer".

Ever since he moved to City, Sergio Aguero has typically held a position on lists such as these.

Brighton have broken their club transfer record twice in one week to draft in Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge's Jose Izquierdo, subject to medical and global clearance.
