It is at the club where he became record all-time goalscorer for Manchester United and England.

While it could be argued that he won the titles in his first year at Porto (2002/03), Chelsea (2004/05) and Inter Milan (2008/09) so it was relatively easier for him to repeat the feat in his second season with these teams, it must be noted that Real Madrid had not won the La Liga for three years prior to his coming in 2010/11 and he promptly claimed the title in his second year.

Afterwards the manager was predictably delighted with all the riches at his disposal and promised that City will "improve the way we attack" this season.

The Blues slumped to a shock 3-2 defeat to Burnley in their Premier League opener this afternoon.

City is much more equipped to launch a sustained title challenge, with Guardiola close to having his ideal squad.

Open training sessions are the best.

And so, barring an occasional miracle like Leicester a couple of seasons ago, we will continue to see the same old teams competing for major honours year after year.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola set the tone with a series of early deals that took his spending in this window to an eye-watering £218 million. Up front he is relying on Michy Batshuayi, who barely got a look in last season, and Alvaro Morata who is unproven in the Premier League.
