Pep Guardiola confirms Manchester City’s remaining transfer plans on Sky Sports


Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher is refusing to discount Chelsea FC from the title race ahead of the new Premier League season.

The new season gets underway in just two days, with Manchester United hosting Leicester City.

According to the predictive algorithm, reigning champions City are likely to go on to lift the league title once again, becoming the first team to retain the crown since 2008-09 when Manchester United completed a hat-trick of league triumphs.

Chelsea have become well-known for flying out of the traps, but last season the Blues suffered a shock opening day defeat at the hands of Burnley.

"The manager is obviously not happy about the signings he hasn't been able to make and not having certain players available on their pre-season tour, which isn't nice to hear if you are a young kid trying to make your mark on the fringes of the squad". More incomings are expected at the Old Trafford before Thursday's transfer deadline. While the Gunners have gotten some impressive business done over the summer, the Blues haven't had the same fortune.

"If we don't make our team better, it will be a hard season for us".

City broke a number of records in 2017/18, with their Premier League points tally hitting the 100 mark in what was an unprecedented achievement.

But City's strength in depth is clear for all to see.

United start the Premier League season at home to Leicester City on Friday and Mourinho took the opportunity at his pre-match news conference to take a swipe at what he views as fatalistic commentary on his reign from the media, in contrast with praise awarded to unnamed counterparts who fail to lift major honours.
