Manchester City want better performances, not more points - Pep Guardiola

Joe Cole was sent off on his Liverpool debut against Arsenal in 2010

The bar has been raised by Manchester City and the Premier League title hopefuls know they will have little room for error if they are to challenge Pep Guardiola's side this season.

Meanwhile their neighbours and reigning champions, Manchester City, have only acquired Riyad Mahrez and Pep Guardiola has already mentioned that a player to back up Fernandinho would be more than welcome.

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.

Kompany says City's impressive win over Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday underlined the squad's hunger.

The new English transfer deadline will be reviewed in September, Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore has said. "We played really well and that is a great sign".

India could field two spinners at Lord's, given the recent hot weather, and Ravichandran Ashwin took 4-62 and 3-59 at Edgbaston. He was eventually dismissed by Adil Rashid in the first innings and by Ben Stokes in the second on the individual score of 51.

"This is a big week for the club ahead of the visit of Spurs on the opening weekend, but I feel the Magpies can maintain their place in the top half of the division with the Toon Army having their part to play". I remember a little bit Paul Scholes who had the special feeling in that position.

Tottenham v Chelsea then completes our superb line-up of live Premier League games in the first four months of the new season, which begins with Saturday's clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton.

The Arsenal legend said: "I want this season's title race to be more spicy and I think it will be". We will see what's going on in the future.

"I've got to be honest".

The two aforementioned teams are followed by the newly promoted Fulham that have invested as many as 75 million euros for several transfers, including Aleksandar Mitrovic, Alfie Mawson and Jean Michael Seri. "We realise this is precious and we want to hold on to it".
