Salah & Mane On Target As Reds Sink City

Mohamed Salah netted against Manchester City

Liverpool, who reached the Champions League final a year ago despite being 25 points of the pace domestically, have added four senior stars this summer. Here, Nick Wright examines the only potential flaw in their squad.

City finished 19 points clear of Manchester United in second, scoring a record 106 goals, and secured 32 league victories. I completely understand. I am not concerned about what one of us said one day and the circumstances.

Preseason gives clubs an opportunity to take a look at a variety of players, whether they may be squad regulars, fringe players, newcomers or reserves.

"We lost the distance between the defenders and the midfielders, but we know we have to work". "Maybe, maybe not, we will see", he said in a press conference on Tuesday.

"We don't think about that, we just try to make the best of it". It's been eight very successful years here and we've played attractive football.

Privately, however, Guardiola might admit there is a little more urgency than he is letting on. "He needs more minutes and he needs to regain his principles in terms of playing without the ball".

Salah's high-flying return allayed fears over his form following the injury, which prevented the playmaker from making an impact at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Guardiola believes that despite building a strong resume last season at the Etihad Stadium that the best has yet to come for Sane, making him a unsafe work in progress.

"The first 75 minutes, against this team which fought for the Champions League last season, I am so, so proud".

"I think if you have the money, if you invest well, it is better than to have it in the bank". Beyond Fernandinho, City's defensive midfield options are limited to Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabian Delph, who Guardiola prefers to use as full-backs, and Ilkay Gundogan, who is a naturally offensive player.

Manchester City midfielder David Silva says his current contract, which runs until 2020, could be his last at the Premier League champions and has ruled out a future move to any rival club in England.
