Pep Guardiola: winning matches, not titles, is my motivation

Pep Guardiola: winning matches, not titles, is my motivation

The 32-year-old played for his old club Everton last season and recently moved to the MLS where he joined D.C. United.

Victory in the Premier League opener was a much-needed shot in the arm after weeks of doom and gloom, with summer target Harry Maguire's inclusion in the Foxes' line-up serving as a reminder of what they missed.

Sunday's early kick off sees Liverpool take on West Ham United at Anfield, with manager Jurgen Klopp set to give a Premier League debut to new goalkeeper Alisson.

City dominated the Premier League last term as they finished first 19 points ahead of second-placed United and also won the Carabao Cup with a 3-0 win over Arsenal at Wembley Stadium.

"Well I think Man City are favourites once again, because of the way they played last season", he told the Mirror.

Guardiola says key players Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are both available to face Arsenal on Sunday, after returning to training on Monday following their respective runs to the World Cup semi-finals with Belgium and England. We've got players on loan so if things don't go right it's not going to bankrupt the club in 12 months.

"So, when you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that repeated 1,000 times is still a lie".

So far Tottenham's interest in Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been rebuffed with the Championship club holding out for a reported fee in excess of £30 million.

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second".

"We believe we can do better, dominate more and we will try to do it".

Jose Mourinho had a frustrating summer, with United only signing three players, with Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant heading to Manchester.
