However, Guardiola's ability to win trophies this year will come down to the players on the pitch. Ederson had a strong preseason with Man City this summer. Silva will certainly push out some of the older players in the squad while giving some competition for winger Leroy Sane. But such was the maturity he showed during his first-team opportunities - notably in a 1-1 draw at Manchester United in January - that regular starter Nathaniel Clyne could soon be under pressure for his ...
Davinder Singh Kang became the first Indian to qualify for the final round of the javelin throw in the World Championships with a terrific display with his third attempt, just about managing to go past the qualifying mark on Thursday in London .
We are not desperate to have it (a deal) done or not. United face a relatively benign start to the season, Rooney's return to Old Trafford with big-spending Everton the most taxing assignment of their opening seven fixtures. "So I don't think I am in a position of crying, of moaning, of protesting". A move failed to transpire, although Willian struggled to cement his place in Antonio Conte's first-choice line-up and started less than half of their Premier League games as he had to make ...
The former Manchester United manager has doubts over the midfielder. 'He was never someone who was going to play in all the games at United. Fellaini, who has now made 89 appearances for the Reds, remains a useful member of Mourinho's squad, with Moyes stating that he is now "vital" to Manchester United .
It curtailed his season at Old Trafford and as a result, Ibrahimovic was not offered a new deal at United when it expired at the end of the last campaign. 'It was a little kid in a Manchester United shirt, so I think for the kid it is something he will never forget and for me, I repeat when I win they don't mean much, imagine when I lose'.
While United will remain vigilant in the transfer market right up until deadline day, Mourinho is losing faith in their ability to do a deal and says he is ready to use his existing options instead. He continued: 'I'm happy with the effort the club did, I'm happy that the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts.
He achieved the feat at Porto, Chelsea twice, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, with the only exceptions to the rule being his first two management roles, at Benfica and Uniao de Leiria, where he lasted less than a season in both cases. Mourinho knows United must improve their goal output and can not rely purely upon £75m new boy Romelu Lukaku , who hit nine in 10 games for Everton against West Ham .

So, let's look at 4 players who deserve an extra look, eh? Coty Sensabaugh should start across from Ross Cockrell with William Gay in the slot, but the latter two shouldn't play for long. Tonight will be our first chance to see how much they improved against the Steelers edge rushers. There are some jobs to be won, both for starting positions and for roles.
In a fitting bit of irony, it appears that the NBA All-Star point guard wants to play for the Los Angeles Clippers . Trade talks around Irving have seemingly cooled in recent weeks as the Cavs search for the best offer. According to 1500 ESPN's Darren Wolfson, the Suns were willing to ship combo guard Eric Bledsoe, second-year big man Dragan Bender and the Miami Heat's 2018 first-round pick to the Cavaliers for Irving, but Jackson and budding star Devin Booker were off limits in ...
He continued: 'I'm happy with the effort the club did, I'm happy that the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts. "What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?" That, I believe, is a more realistic appraisal of how close most teams are to the relegation zone and just how tight the bottom half of the Premier League is.
Substitute Olivier Giroud headed in a dramatic late victor as Arsenal fought back to beat Leicester City in a thrilling start to the 2017-18 Premier League season. At Liverpool, Salah is also embarking on his second spell in England and has impressed with four goals in pre-season friendlies.

The plan for Leicester this season is to finish in the top ten and maybe go on a run in the FA Cup or League Cup . I'm just waiting on the scan results. He said: "Last season we were favourites too and finished 15 points behind and, from my experience as a manager, always in the beginning of the season, the new teams are the toughest ones".
Pressed by fellow panellist and BBC Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker whether he genuinely did not know until the latter stage of the season whether he knew he would be staying or not, Wenger said: "No". Alexandre Lacazette heads in the opening goal of the season. Shinji Okazaki was the initial beneficiary with a fifth-minute equaliser.

In an email to MMAjunkie, NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett said the fighters and their representatives will have the opportunity to make the case for eight-ounce gloves.

"Add in that Conor has a granite-like chin, add in that he's 12 years younger than Floyd, and add in that he's taller and longer", he continued.
City's first choice XI is pretty much impossible to predict right now (but we're going to have a go anyway) and we'll also take a look at how the team might set out by the time the window shuts at the end of August.

There were some promising signs last season - an opening salvo of 10 straight wins, a stunning Champions League victory over Barcelona - but City never found any consistent form. N'Golo Kante and Bakayoko serve as the anchors for Conte's 3-4-3 and youngster Andreas Christensen shows he's ready to contribute in the team's back three.
Rattled by a chastening first season in England, Pep Guardiola has gone back to the drawing board in an attempt to fashion Manchester City into Premier League champions. Finally, ESPN columnist Simon Curtis looks beyond a busy summer of transfer activity back into the history books of Brighton v City, and finds cause to be wary.
Philippe Coutinho rocked Liverpool this afternoon by formally asking to leave following interest from Barcelona . Liverpool FC released a statement earlier today maintaining their stance over the Brazilian, but have since been hit with harsh news of Coutinho handing in a transfer request.
However, as reported by the Guardian , that transfer request was promptly rejected by the Merseyside outfit and it remains to be seen if Coutinho will still be a Liverpool player once the transfer window shuts at the end of the month. "He has tremendous love for the club and its fans but Liverpool does not let its players leave on amicable terms". Watford will open their new season at home as the Hornets take on Liverpool in their opening fixture.
The Blues suffered a heartbreaking penalty shoot-out defeat against Arsenal on Sunday and will kick off their Premier League campaign against Burnley on Saturday. Antonio Conte has made no secret of his desire to sign more players with the season just days away from starting. Much like their stance on Ivan Perisic to Manchester United , Inter have fixed a price for the 30-year-old, but fortunately for the Blues, it's a lot lower than what they're asking for for the Croatia worldwide.
Mourinho left the Bernabeu in 2013 having won one La Liga and Copa Del Rey but suggested earlier on Monday that his real achievement was lifting Real out of the doldrums.
