Alan Shearer And Ian Wright Make Their Premier League Predictions

Irrespective of whether or not there are any more incomings, long-serving City captain Vincent Kompany believes there is a level of hunger among his team-mates that was not present when the club failed to defend the Premier League title in 2012-13 and 2014-15. Many are tipping Liverpool to be their closest challengers this season, after a a £123.6m spending spree this summer.

The Merseyside outfit will be aiming to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title this season after they ended up in fourth place but invested heavily in their squad over the summer.

"Liverpool are strong", Walker said.

Liverpool beat City three times last season - twice in the two-legged Champions League quarterfinal, and their moves in the transfer market should make them serious contenders. The home game was a little bit different with Mané getting sent off. Arsenal have been doing really well in pre-season, Manchester United are always going to be strong.

"Now we will practice hard this season in real competitions and other matches".

"People ask "can you improve on 100 points" and I say no because we are not here to do that".

"We don't have many".

City have been quiet in the transfer market, adding just Riyad Mahrez from Leicester, but their attacking potency and ability to dominate possession should be even stronger with the addition of the Algerian.

City dominated last season by playing possession-based football featuring a number of tactical innovations and it will be fascinating to see to what extent their rivals seek to emulate the approach of Guardiola.

But City's strength in depth is clear for all to see. They have quality all over the pitch and Guardiola will be extremely focused on further improving his team this season.
