Manchester City announce second signing

  • Mohamed Salah netted against Manchester City

The arrival of club-record signing Riyad Mahrez adds extra competition to Guardiola's attacking options and even if he was exceptional last season, Sane can not afford to rest on his laurels.

Craig's appearance came after Salah and Mane left City shaken - but not stirred - in a strong performance, with both players getting on the scoresheet.

In Manchester City's case, the Premier League champions have carried numerous latter during their International Champions Cup tour in the United States, largely due to the fact that their stars are still recovering from a long 2017/18 PL season, in addition to duties at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

However, the Reds managed to reach a first Champions League final in 11 seasons before a 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the European Cup showpiece in Kiev.

Asked about Salah's return post-match, Liverpool manager Klopp told reporters: "I said before the game, it's not that he has problems - he has no problems". "I don't know yet, but I won't play for another club in England".

". We have to enjoy our football, otherwise it makes no sense".

"So it was really a nice second half which helped us a lot because we all see it's still there, it's all good".

If this sets the tone for the forthcoming season, then it'll have Premier League fans salivating.

"I am pretty sure they are going to have a good season". You saw how well he played last season, improving, and he seems happy.

Rewind further to 2016/17 and again they recorded the same total of wins in their first 15 games as their last: nine. The best way to show his quality and maturity is by stepping up when City need him most and Sane could just be Guardiola's most important player in the opening weeks of their title defence.

The Reds' starts and finishes have been too poor for a side looking to challenge for the Premier League title, as they've either started the season looking seriously unprepared or ended it blowing hot and cold.
