Pep Guardiola demands more quality to Manchester City's play

Keith Curle in action for Manchester City


"I want to continue with what we did in the last three games of pre-season", said Guardiola.

15 - Newcastle FC - Rafa Benitez will be looking to keep Newcastle in the Premier League, but has expressed frustrations at the manner in which the club is signing players. And you know what happened?

"So okay, we accept what people say. Last season in my first press conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed". I can not control it.

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. "These two guys have goals in their blood, they live for that, but to score goals we have to try to create".

Last season was the first time in his managerial career that he finished a campaign without having added at least one trophy to his collection.

"We have to learn to attack better". If not, then next season.

The sky blues upped the pressure in the second half and Argentinean striker Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for sky blues in the 70th minute.

The only sour note for City was a tweet from Mendy, saying: "Bullet header" in reference to Lewis Dunk's own goal.

The drive was set up when Cowboys punt returner Lance Lenoir fumbled a punt to set the Rams up at the Cowboys 33-yard line. The Cowboys threw 41 passes in Elliott's absence, and Darren McFadden was their top ball-carrier with only six rushes.

That was a relief after the uncertain starts made by title rivals Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, and his new three-man defence was seldom in difficulty.

And while the newly-promoted club will enjoy the occasion, there will be no party atmosphere at the Amex Stadium, said captain Bruno Saltor Grau.

"It's hard but we did it".

"I fancy Manchester City to win the league, they look irresistible on the attack and playing against a Brighton side in front of an expectant home crowd, the Seagulls will have to have a go, playing into City's hands".

"We're here to win games and we won the first one - but it's just the first one", he said. You don't see a player in my team who didn't run, and I'm proud of that.

"We did that last season too, but in the boxes we were not good". Today our box was flawless and in the opponents box we scored two goals but we created more.

Spurs are confident Kieran Trippier can replace Walker at right back, but while they have been strongly linked with Everton midfielder Ross Barkley they have yet to bring in any new faces.
