Guardiola defends Manchester City's big spending

Pep Guardiola Yaya Toure Manchester City

"I think Manchester United will win the Premier League because Mourinho has never failed in the second season", Crespo said in a Q&A via the Daily Mirror.

Mourinho told a news conference on Friday: "We have 25 percent left which means one of four - we got a central defender that can play many other positions which is very important".

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.

Promoted Brighton & Hove Albion host Premier League title favourites Manchester City at the Amex Stadium on Saturday as they kick off their 2017/18 campaign. "We go to sign and other clubs are always going to ask us for more".

"Their summer signings have improved the team and I don't think Pep Guardiola has stopped spending yet".

Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws the highest in the league and the team had more wins away than at Old Trafford.

After a summer full of anticipation for fans, The Seagulls begin their first top flight season for 34 years at home to Manchester City at the Amex tomorrow evening.

Obiang is by all accounts a very good player himself and won't give Pogba a moments rest on the ball. Craig Burley feels Pep Guardiola's back may be against the wall if he does not win any trophies with Man City this season.

"I'm really happy to be with them and I'm going to fight with them all the way, so let's go on Sunday".

"We have had a better pre-season than past year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

"Victor can play right-back and can play central midfielder, we got a central midfielder, we got a striker".

"I just think naturally a manager in the second season knows the players better, knows the club better".

That is a big change from a year ago, when United played only five pre-season matches after a friendly against Manchester City in Beijing was called off.

"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble". However, they have been unable to sign a wide player, and a move for Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic, who has been linked in the British media with a transfer to Old Trafford, looks unlikely.
