Jonathan is ESPN FC's Manchester City correspondent. "If the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play". "We're used to just watching the game and going away quietly, but this time around we could not leave quietly".
In spite of City's lavish summer spending, which has seen the club surpass the £220m barrier, Guardiola anticipates a tough start for the new season.

Perhaps we've got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. The pressure it's never a big problem. "I will do my best like I did last season". I prefer the Mourinho in the dressing room, he's friendlier.
Romelu Lukaku might have joined Chelsea but ended up at Manchester United for 75 million pounds ($99.18 million), a move that pushed Jose Mourinho's alternative targets Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata towards Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.
