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

Guardiola took a season to adjust to life in England, but secured both the league title and the EFL Cup in 2017-18, and Mahrez has already been impressed by the Spaniard during their short time working together in training.

Manchester City fell 1-0 to the Bundesliga outfits at Soldier Field on Friday night, while Liverpool gave away a 1-0 lead in the 3-1 defeat to the same opponent at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday.

Liverpool will head into the new Premier League season with a top class goalkeeper and two brand new midfielders that are borderline world class in their own rights.

Which team will finish as champions?

After City are many familiar clubs, but not quite in the order some might expect.

One of the first pundits to offer his predictions for the upcoming season is former Liverpool and Real Madrid star Steve McManaman.

Let's take a closer look.

And BT Sport pundit McManaman reckons Mourinho's men will miss out on the top four this season, along with Chelsea.

Tottenham have had a record nine players in the World Cup semi-finals, so perhaps they are waiting to assess what they have before they make any big decisions.

"Liverpool is always a contender to win the title". The club added attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez this summer and didn't have any notable departures others than Yaya Toure.

Choking back tears, Toronto Councillor Mary Fragedakis said to the city council Monday morning, "This is so heartbreaking". The family of the man identified as the gunman released a statement saying Hussain suffered from mental health problems.

Mendy has been a cheerful menace by pranking the midfielder, with clips of City's japes - including hanging his shoes from the ceiling and throwing him in a pool fully clothed - going viral a year ago.

"But football, when you feel you are exhausted and the players don't follow you, even if I have the contract, I will speak with the people about it and we are going to find a solution". With the fantastic atmosphere around the dressing room it's really good to go out to train every day. "Liverpool fans should be very optimistic and very excited".

Pep Guardiola says he is not concerned by rival clubs spending money as Manchester City aim to hold off several challengers for their Premier League title.

Almost being the keyword for despite blowing everyone out of the water en route to the Premier League and Carabao Cup titles, their continental exploits left a lot to be desired.

"The way they played last season was brilliant".

"When we made a decision to extend the contract, first of all I am comfortable, the second one is the club trust what we are doing", he said.

"They are favourites to win the Premier League and arguably now looking across Europe some of the big teams are anxious".

"In the Champions League, you have to focus 100% and if you make mistakes, you'll be out". "I talked with all the staff and we thought it would be good".
