A forward line that includes talents such as Serio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and David Silva is better than anything else in the division and would cause any of the top teams in Europe problems. In the 34 years since we have experienced highs and very many lows.
"It's going to be tough, very tough".
Manchester City's struggles in big games and between the sticks hurt Pep Guardiola in his first season as a manager in England.
"But what the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City can do, they can do that and good luck to them".
"Everybody did an fantastic job last season...we've got to try and keep that high level [into this season] because this is the Premier League".
"I have a lot of respect for the players I had", he explained. We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1.
The champions should start the season with a win in front of their own fans, but Conte still has plenty of things to figure out. Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal.
"I was confident then too", the coach admitted.
"We know from working in pre-season on the training pitch what our game plan is going to be in most games".
Pep Guardiola claims Premier League spending is 'unsustainable'
He believes that night was a crucial juncture in his career and one of the main reasons he is now a City player. The south coast club's last home game in the top flight was a 1-0 defeat by City on May 7 1983.
"In the Premier League you can not afford to let it slip, you have to be ready from the first game until the end". "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".
The defensive part of Mendy's game needs a bit of work, which is why we'll most likely see him playing ahead of a back three in most of his appearances.
The 18 conceded at Anfield may not sound terrible, but it was a higher figure than all the other teams in the top six, as well as city rivals Everton.
"If we cannot strengthen the team in these areas we have players that we can trust".
"I have a feeling that we will score early and get a good win against Brighton on Saturday".
Romelu Lukaku looks to be the physical presence with a goal-scoring pedigree needed to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack.
"Anthony Knockaert seems to be one of Brighton's better players".
Pep Guardiola's attacking style put huge pressure on his defence in his trophyless first campaign at the Etihad Stadium, with Kompany's regular absences making it hard for John Stones to settle in after his move from Everton.
Simply put: there is no right-back in the Premier League who's better than Walker, and his almost immaculate injury record gives City fans the confidence that he'll be on the pitch many times. I considered adding him here, but instead included Salah. Why?
"I am pleased with the business City have done in the transfer window so far". Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season.
