Five youngsters to watch in Premier League

Keith Curle in action for Manchester City

City's breakthrough came within minutes of Guardiola bringing on Leroy Sane, just one member of a star-studded bench from which Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling later emerged.

The south coast club's last home game in the top flight was a 1-0 defeat by City on May 7 1983. Their doggedness against the Premier League's most gifted opposition suggested they are unlikely to be a soft touch for anyone.

"We were favourites last season and missed out by 15 points so being favourites this season means nothing".

11 - West Brom - The club has a been a consistent Premier League club since the early 2000s, signing veterans and experienced players to help them stay in the league.

"We are here to win games, we won but it is just the first one", he added. Our fans really get behind us and they're going to step it up even more because they know we need them even more.

"Manchester City have the best team on paper", ex-England midfielder Owen Hargreaves told the Premier League official website.




"There are a lot of positives to take out of this game, building on what we did in preseason".

"But we had chances in the first minutes and after the game was quieter, it's not easy to attack 10 guys in the box".

"We did that last season too, but in the boxes we were not good".

"There's a huge gulf between the Championship and the top Premier League teams and having watched City in pre-season, they look like they are in the mood for a good start".

Manchester United scored only 54 goals last season, letting an excellent defensive season go to waste with a sixth-place finish. It is weird because as defensively fragile as they looked at times a year ago. Danilo, on the left, took every available opportunity to cut in on his favoured right foot while Walker was always an outlet on his flank, though Silva and De Bruyne both seemed hesitant to use him.

There should not be any shoehorning of players into unfamiliar roles this season after Guardiola signed three top-level full-backs - Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo - at a combined cost of around $161 million.
