Guardiola, who City this summer, yet 250 million saw spend on reinforcements, sees that his team is better than last season. “We have never been so well played. Of course, this is only a practice game, but we should not forget that Tottenham last season the best football of the Premier League played.”
“The way we currently get results is good for our confidence,” continued Guardiola, who is entering its second season as manager of City. “I am very satisfied.”

“At this time, City further than we are, because they are important players have retained and strengthened,” said Pochettino. “But we are also still hard at work to get players to pick which of our selection is stronger.”
