Guardiola: Man City to rein in spending after record outlay

Pep Guardiola says City to rein in spending after record outlay of US$500M in his first season in charge

"I can not go into the game with too many uncertainties", Wenger said. I was confident last season, too. This game will have more of a competitive edge than the usual curtain raiser, but we can expect Arsene Wenger's side to be up for it.

As the Premier League season draws near, the hype surrounding it is also at its pinnacle.

No, Arsenal nor Leicester won the league a year ago, but it is still a marquee match.

However, the club did win the Europa League and the League Cup, giving the manager a platform of success on which to build.

"It's not just hope it's convinced that the quality of the team will be better, I have conditions to deliver a better one than the first".

However, United finished in sixth place and an eye-watering 24 points behind champions Chelsea, despite losing the same number of Premier League games as Mourinho's former club.

"It's been a long pre-season and it's always tough", Leicester captain Wes Morgan said.

Arsenal continued to dominate possession in the second half, only to concede a another goal in the 55th minute, when Vardy redirected a Riyad Mahrez corner kick past home goalkeeper Petr Cech.

At least two people were treated for serious but non-life-threatening emergencies from altercations by 10:30 a.m. Counter-protesters flooded the area to square off with the group of alt-right activists and white supremacists.

Mourinho said: "I think everybody is in Europe".

Liverpool have won 15 of 20 top-flight meetings with Watford, and six of the last seven. In France, you have Paris that produces maybe 60 or 70% of players.

The United manager had outlined four positions he wanted to strengthen in to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the start of the transfer window, but only Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have arrived at Old Trafford. "Last season in my first press conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed".

"There were some mistakes and I think we lacked a bit of experience".

The manager confirmed that the Manchester club is in talks to re-sign striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is recovering from a knee ligament injury.

After enduring a troubled campaign marred by fan protests against him last season, Wenger desperately needs a strong start this term. "If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know".

While it might seem insane Guardiola is thinking of adding any more to the midfield and attack, there are two high-profile players linked with the club in those positions.
