Man City boss Guardiola raps media: More to Premier League than Liverpool!

Man City boss Guardiola raps media: More to Premier League than Liverpool!

There are some big matches today, most notably when current champions Manchester City travel to Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.

Three points and early momentum in the title race.

"We are working very hard in time for Sunday to show our capacity and our mentality and I want to win this match because it is important for us and the players to take confidence", he said.

Maitland-Niles isn't a natural left-back, although was deployed there on various occasions last season, and his right-footedness might help if Guardiola deploys Riyad Mahrez on the right flank, as the Algerian is always attempting to drift inside onto his left.

Rather than ask his players to eradicate that glory from their minds, as Bill Shankly and Sir Alex Ferguson might have done in order to start again, Guardiola is demanding they remember what made them such sparkling winners.

Arsenal finished sixth last season as they completed their campaign in dismal fashion.

"For me, that is the best message I can give the supporters". I work a lot and I am good at this.

It's an incredibly hard start for Unai Emery as the Gunners new chapter starts against a team tipped for more superiority after their exploits last season. I've said many time that I'm not a special guy but I am so good at working, working, working, and they have to work too'.

"That's the basic principle".

He adds: "I see Kevin de Bruyne smashing it in terms of the PFA player of the year". It's about the mix, when you have a defensive or attacking moment, and I want every player to improve in this way.

I will be using half my stake backing Over 3.5 goals before the game starts at around [2.5] and also placing the other half on Over 2.5 goals with a keep bet should it reach [2.0] in running.

City kick off the league campaign with one "title" already in their trophy cabinet, after last weekend's comfortable Community Shield victory over Chelsea.

Guardiola's side might become more technical at the back this season, with Aymeric Laporte and John Stones seemingly his first-choice combination, with the more rugged Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi back-ups.

Having missed out on the Champions League, Arsenal will play in the Europa league but boy aren't they in safe hands!

'It is not comfortable but if you want to compete in four competitions we cannot compete with just two good central defenders. We need four on the top level.

Speaking ahead of his side's opening game at Arsenal, live on Sky Sports, Guardiola said: "We were the best, definitely, no doubts about that, but we don't play alone".

Despite that, City are firm favourites to retain their title.
