Guardiola says repeat of record-breaking season 'impossible'

City could repeat. GOAL

Silva linked up with City in NY earlier this week and is desperate to get minutes over the next few weeks, returning quickly after Portugal's last-16 exit in Russian Federation.

Silva has been on his guard since reporting back for pre-season duty on Monday as World Cup victor Mendy returned with him.

However, Guardiola can experiment with faces and formations after admitting he got his tactics wrong in the pivotal quarterfinal first-leg defeat at Anfield in April, and it may be that despite having so many players missing, he learns more from the friendly than his opposite number Klopp, who is so desperate to catch him. Now we're on to the last two weeks before the first game, so we need to keep going, working and we will see. The £43million man's guile has impressed Guardiola and he will be used both wide and centrally after the arrival of Riyad Mahrez.

"I expect us to improve match by match". "I'm happy for him, he's a big friend of mine".

"But football, when you feel you are exhausted and the players don't follow you, even if I have the contract, I will speak with the people about it and we are going to find a solution".

Gandapur, who was a PTI nominee for PK-99, was on his to a political convention when his vehicle was targetted in Kulachi tehsil of DI Khan.

Mahrez is one of the few City players to be back in training, with 16 of Guardiola's first team squad given extra time off after call-ups for the World Cup.

Benjamin Mendy is arriving in Miami to finish the pre-season tour, which means Silva will have to be on his toes in the dressing room. Oddsmakers past year had listed City as the favorites at 7/4.

"His target is to play as many minutes with us, and the national team is a effect of that", he said. "The level is here, now we try to take the level, every team tries to do better and better".

"Signing Alisson smashed the record for a goalkeeper but players are worth what they are worth now, that's just the value of good players, if you want the best you pay good money". He's always happy, he's always trying to make people laugh and do amusing things.
