Pep Guardiola insists Premier League champions can get better

Pep Guardiola insists Premier League champions can get better

The action-packed autumn Premier League period is complemented by BT Sport's exclusive live coverage of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

England star Walker says their best is yet to come, with City boss Pep Guardiola demanding they go for broke by winning the Champions and Premier Leagues and both the FA and League Cups.

"If Liverpool can get some impetus, then we don't know how Manchester City will react under pressure if a team can stay close to them at the end of the season".

After Jose Mourinho bolstered his squad over the summer by signing young defender Diogo Dalot, Brazil global Fred and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant, Shaw believes that United will be more than a match for rivals this campaign.

Mourinho has rounded on the club's hierarchy for failing to sufficiently strengthen in his opinion despite the signings of Brazilian worldwide midfielder Fred and Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot.

"Now we will practice hard this season in real competitions and other matches. Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody", warned Mourinho.

"When you improve individually you improve the team". They're not strong enough defensively so really need one of their strikers to step up this season, otherwise they'll be in real trouble.

Guardiola's team are the favourites for the domestic title once again as they prepare to kick off the new season at Arsenal on Sunday.

Ian Wright believes that Tottenham will miss out on the top four this season in the Premier League.

"Huddersfield only picked up 13 points in 2018 in the PL and I think they will continue to struggle in the new season". "Nobody is consistent with 11 players".

They get the ball forward quickly, it'll work for the first five to six games, and they need to get off to a flyer, but it could catch up with them after that.

City haven't dipped into the deep pockets of their Abu Dhabi owners as significantly as Guardiola's first two summers in charge, but have still strengthened with club record signing Riyad Mahrez. "We've discussed that many times in Europe".

"This is a big week for the club ahead of the visit of Spurs on the opening weekend, but I feel the Magpies can maintain their place in the top half of the division with the Toon Army having their part to play".

World Cup victor Paul Pogba is also unlikely to be fit for the game at Old Trafford.
