The Premier League wonderkids on cusp of first-team

After bolstering their squad, Guardiola's side - who came third last season - have been made favourites to win the title, but the City manager said he could cope with that burden. "I wanted some Premier League, British experience", Shakespeare added.

City have been the among the biggest spenders in the transfer market this summer, having paid in the region of £200 million pounds so far.

"We want to win more trophies and do better in the Premier League and we're obviously happy to be back in the Champions League". Scoring goals, that's what we were expecting. Nearly every top team have strengthened themselves with some wonderful signings and we are in for an absolute peach of a season.

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced - it is not just a hope, I am convinced - that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

Press Association Sport has ranked every team in the Premier League based on leading bookmakers' odds to derive a predicted league table topped by Manchester City.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton has spoken about the expectations he has for his side's first Premier League campaign.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the lone player to reach double figures in the league with 17, while Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney were the next best with a mere six.

"In the next three, four years Manchester City will buy one, two maybe three players but not going to buy what happened this season".

"You will have so many scientists around the team that who will bring out the team to play on Saturday will be more management specialists than football specialists".

"My family and I were fortunate enough to travel across seven states, driving over 2,000 miles, following Manchester City on tour (in America) this summer and we had the most fantastic time".

"What does it change that you have two years or one year to go?" I think it will be a draw. "We were a threat and played football and contributed to a thoroughly entertaining game".

"The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time".

Prodigal son Wayne Rooney returns after 13 years away from the club at Man Utd, and the proceeds of the Lukaku sale have also seen the arrival of Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, Burnley's England defender Michael Keane and Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen, who could be a shrewd purchase.
