Premier League relegation battle - Who will go down?

PREMIER LEAGUE 2017-18: 5 key players signed in offseason Guardiola forecasts end to City spending spree
Pammachio Corsino | 13 Agosto, 2017, 03:13

In his first press conference of the new season ahead of tomorrow's opener against Brighton, Pep Guardiola confirmed that there will be more transfers before the window shuts in 20 days.

If Phil Foden's Premier League debut arrives over the coming weeks, do not expect Manchester City's diminutive 17-year-old midfielder to be intimidated by the prospect of tangling with older men and bigger physical specimens. They're heavily tipped to end the season rock bottom, but the Terriers could give the first indication today that they're prepared to spring a surprise. There's a gulf between Albion and City.

Man City finished third in the league table last season.

Sergio Aguero has five goals in six previous opening day matches for Manchester City. In his earlier stinct in the premier league mangager (with Norwich), Hughton was often criticised for his negative style of play, but with Brighton he seems to have find a new level. "So, I didn't think twice when I got the proposal from City".

101 Great Goals prediction: 3-1 to the Sky Blues. Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal.

"Fortunately for us, there isn't any player in our team or squad that doesn't know the Premier League or the Premier League players and their qualities".

Here, we predict who will be playing in the Championship this time next year - and who will narrowly survive. "But we try to win the game". "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".


We welcome two colorful clubs along with passionate fan bases to the most prestigious league in the World! I hope I can prove I'm just as good as them. The squad they have now is more than capable of challenging on all fronts; however don't rule out City breaking the bank for another superstar if the chance presents itself. With Vincent Kompany spending a lot of time on the sidelines last season - they will need him fit if they are to fight for the title at the end of the season.

Comparisons have been drawn to Thierry Henry, but even Arsenal's prolific striker took time to adjust to English physicality, failing to score in his first eight games after his arrival from Juventus.

"I would like to see Pep Guardiola stay even if City didn't win a trophy, but the reality of football is that he would most likely be sacked if we have another season like the last one".

Ajax prodigy Jairo Riedewald has been brought in to strengthen at centre-back and offers composure in the back-line that could see him become a vital figure for the south London club.

Their summer transfer business has been disappointing, with a number of high profile targets eluding them, and the news that Philippe Coutinho may be on his way to Barcelona is a major blow.

City's Arab billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour has invested more than 200 million pounds in new players during the close-season adding to their already impressive attacking options and upgrading their identified "weak spots" at full-back and goalkeeper.
