Manchester City want better performances, not more points - Pep Guardiola

Manchester City want better performances, not more points - Pep Guardiola

Among them Tiemoue Bakayoko is subject of a loan move to AC Milan and according to Sky, the clubs are already talking over a possible deal for the Frenchman.

No great surprise that he gives a predictable top three, Man City to retain their title, followed by big spending Liverpool, then Tottenham.

Premier League clubs are scrambling to bring in their final signings of the summer before the transfer window shuts at 5pm this afternoon.

Kovacic, who has been targeted by Manchester United this summer, is reportedly unhappy at the Bernabeu due to a lack of playing time and looking for a place where he can get more regular first team chances. "That's why I am backing Jurgen Klopp's side to pip them to the title". The Anfield friendly saw goals from Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge, but new signing Fabinho missed a penalty.

Boss Mourinho is not optimistic that any of those players will arrive at Old Trafford before the end of play today, although the club are understood to be trying to do a deal.

Scudamore told Sky Sports he had received a mixed response to the arrangement.


With the Premier League deciding not to introduce VAR for the coming season, it is interesting to see how much luck plays a part in the way the league unfolds.

"It is going to be challenging, particularly for the promoted clubs, who effectively have two-and-a-half weeks less".

"That, they thought, transcended all the other challenges".

"Huddersfield only picked up 13 points in 2018 in the PL and I think they will continue to struggle in the new season". But the decision has been made and we'll analyse it in September when it's all over.

"I believe it's an interesting alternative to close the window before the league kicks off", he said.
