The manager confirmed that the Manchester club is in talks to re-sign striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is recovering from a knee ligament injury. I saw him on the TV last season, but it will depend on how he and the other players adjust to the Premier League.
Attack: Jesse Lingard played in the unfamiliar left wing-back role against Madrid but was hooked at half-time so I think we'll see him make way with Marcus Rashford coming in to the attack. "Then we have got to adapt to their style of play", says Brighton midfielder Steve Sidwell.
"We always had more goals with wingers and midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals, and last season that did not happen much". I think we're in for plenty of goals and a decent City win.
"I have better conditions to deliver a better season than my first one".
"We feel ready because we've been at a good level but we have nothing to show for it at the moment", said City captain Vincent Kompany.
"We had lots of dominance at home, lots of chances, lots when the match should be two or three nil and in the end was 1-1".
"I have a feeling that we will score early and get a good win against Brighton on Saturday".
Arsenal boss Wenger reveals Sanchez injury layoff
Arsene Wenger spent a club-record £52m fee on Alexandre Lacazette to sign the France worldwide from Ligue 1 side Lyon. When asked if the club had any others for the Chilean, Wenger replied "I can not tell you that".
Liverpool finished in fourth place last season and manager Jurgen Klopp has brought in Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, Domimic Solanke and Scottish defender Andy Robertson to improve his squad. Rather than being a platform to build on to challenge for a first title since 1961, Tottenham's ownership appears more focused on building a new stadium. It's been far too long since we said farewell to football and I've been resigned to watching highlights of old West Ham United matches on YouTube.
"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season".
"We have had a better pre-season than a year ago and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".
Premier League champions Chelsea have completed four transfer deals after recruiting Manchester City reserve goalkeeper Willy Caballero, AS Roma's Antonio Rudiger, Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko and Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata. Chelsea, without European football, were able to run away with the title, as Leicester managed to do the season before.
The 54-year-old added: "I think everyone - the top seven - are all in Europe".
Brighton have been busy in the transfer market themselves since securing promotion from the Championship after two excellent seasons for Chris Hughton's team.
"This time we are all in the same basket and it will be the same for everybody".
