Training: City step up ahead of league opener

The Blues are back in London this weekend for our opening Premier League clash away at Arsenal.

Manchester City will have a new kit supplier from the 2019/20 season as part of a £50 million multi-club deal negotiated by parent company City Football Group.

"Now we will practice hard this season in real competitions and other matches".

The pair were asked to pick their Premier League predictions ahead of the new season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore says there has been a "mixed response" to the earlier deadline.

Another specialist holding midfield option alongside Fernandinho was also a priority but City's pursuit of Jorginho ended with the Italy global moving to Chelsea from Napoli.

Last season, City won the EPL title and finished top of the Premier League with a whopping 100 points, 19 more than second-place United. "That's why I am backing Jurgen Klopp's side to pip them to the title".

Who's going down? Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town, Watford.

Tottenham have made no moves in the market but crucially they have kept hold of their key players, and the attacking combination of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli will relish the chance to shine at the club's new stadium, due to open in September.

The 24-year-old England worldwide, who helped City win the Premier League title last term after joining from Everton in 2016, is nominally a centre-back.

"It's going to be a lot different to last season as well because teams are strengthening and trying to keep up the pace with us, but it's a pat on the back for us and it's a compliment that people are going out and spending the money that they're spending to try and compete with us".
