Guardiola says repeat of record-breaking season 'impossible'

How Guardiola motivates his players: If you have to hate me, hate me

'Some of you play better when you're angry with me. If you hate me, hate me'

City became the first ever team in the Premier League to win with 100 points as well as securing the biggest title-winning margin (19 points) by scoring the most goals (106), most wins (32), most consecutive wins (18) and best goal difference (+79).

And the 22-year-old believes the added competition for places will push City to new levels, while also allowing them to deal with the congested fixture list.

"Maybe one will come, maybe not, we'll see, but at the moment we have a good enough squad".

Premier League champions Manchester City have unveiled their 2018/19 Nike away kit, which draws inspiration from "the most important game in the club's history".

"If we are not able to be consistent and be there to win the title... football trainers are always in a unsafe position". "First of all it is because I am comfortable and second is the club trust what we are doing".

"I don't like it when my colleagues speak about me or my players so I'm not going to say that".

"I believe that he can do it again because he is a good coach, he has a good team, and he has the support of Manchester City and the City group", said Villa, who worked with Guardiola at Barcelona.

Liverpool have spent more than £170m on new players this summer to try to overturn last season's 25-point gap between themselves and the Premier League champions.

"Always at the beginning of the season the expectation of every team is high". If Liverpool believe they need these players for this kind of money, that's fine.

"All the contenders will be stronger".

That kit, seen below, was worn by the Citizens during their momentous Division 2 (now League One) play-off final victory over Gillingham at the end of the 1998/99 season. "Nobody knows what will happen this season".

City have completed the transfer of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City.

"His target is to play as many minutes with us, and the national team is a effect of that", he said. "But I'll do my best to stay this time together".
