Now managed by Pep Guardiola and boasting a plethora of world stars, the City of today is a far cry from the club which at one point in the Premier League era even dropped into the third tier of English football.

However, the argument can be made that Man City should be made title favorites this season, as they have completed multiple tasks this summer and have done the most upgrading out of any of the top six clubs in England. In their place come Kyle Walker from Tottenham, Benjamin Mendy from Monaco and Danilo from Real Madrid.

Guardiola hopes to have put his goalkeeping problems to bed as well, having reacted to Claudio Bravo's travails by bringing in Brazil goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica in a £35 million deal.

City's Arab billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour has invested more than 200 million pounds in new players during the close-season adding to their already impressive attacking options and upgrading their identified "weak spots" at full-back and goalkeeper. Both Guardiola and Mourinho could argue that their first seasons were transitional campaigns.

"We haven't been able to beat them yet but there's always a first time and it would be nice to think it would be Friday night. Then we have got to adapt to their style of play", says Brighton midfielder Steve Sidwell.

A spokesperson said the 27-year-old system was "well past its life cycle and will fail in the near future without intervention". A sign in the Palm Room of the White House in Washington alerted visitors as the West Wing is undergoing renovations.

Pep Guardiola has been known for his 4-3-3 possession dominant tactic at the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Man City last season, where the two full backs support and attack and the defensive midfielder covers for the two center backs. Guardiola's side were unplayable at times, with a fluid front five of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and, once he arrived in January, Gabriel Jesus. And of course it wouldn't be a Manchester City season preview if we didn't mention the fitness of Vincent Kompany. He's a player who knows how to make key passes and I'm obviously very excited because I know how these kind of players can decide games and help you towards achieving great things.

"If I was reincarnated as a player, I'd like to be like him".

And the £43million purchase of Bernardo Silva could be one of the bargain buys of a summer that has seen transfer fees explode. For City it's just trying to gel everyone together, understand the tactics, and avoid injuries.

The 20-year-old Chelsea striker is ready for the next stage of his career after scoring 26 goals on loan at Bristol City in the second tier last season.
