City were so strong last term that Guardiola has needed to make only one major close-season signing - landing Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez from Leicester in a £60 million deal.

Having previously managed Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola is used to high expectations.

Spurs failed to sign a single player during the transfer window with many people anxious that could scupper the clubs effort to push for the title this term.

However, they finished 25 points back in the league as Pep Guardiola's men romped to the title with a record 100 points.

Their next Premier League encounter of the season after Leicester will come against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday August 19. I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies. We go with everything we have in that first match.

'I hope someone can catch them - it would be nice, so hopefully Manchester United can.

City have a full-strength squad available after Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling returned to training this week.

According to the BBC , Johnson's supporters defended his remarks, saying that he was simply sticking up for "liberal values". "If you say that it is weird and bullying to expect women to cover their faces, then I totally agree", Johnson said .

The club were linked with a number of names, notably Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, for who they had a £25million bid rejected on Wednesday. "If we play good and are consistent like last season, we have a chance to repeat".

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

"It's true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can't achieve that".

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

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said in his press conference earlier today, as per The Mirror.

Cardiff have spent around £28.5m net this summer, boosting their squad with six arrivals, and Warnock, speaking before Saturday's game against Bournemouth, said: "We're not throwing money away or doing things we can't sustain".
