Big-spending Guardiola leads chase of Chelsea

Michael Benson  Top goalscorer = Gabriel Jesus

Even more so than his old foe Jose Mourinho across town at Manchester United, if Guardiola can not at the very least orchestrate a sustained title challenge, his gilded reputation will take a sizeable hit.

But with a sixth place finish in the Premier League and a quarter-final exit in the FA Cup, Pogba says the team are aiming to win it all this season and get United back to being regular multiple-trophy winners.

The 35-year-old was the only United player to get into double figures in the league.

Manchester United is in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about the striker playing again for the club.

City still appears too dependent on Vincent Kompany, its injury-prone center back and captain, while a new holding midfielder to replace 34-year-old Yaya Toure will probably be Guardiola's priority next summer.

The lack of goals contributed to 10 league draws at Old Trafford that cost the club any chance of challenging Chelsea for the title.

Mourinho added: "The challenge is to win more matches than we did, by scoring more or conceding less, I don't know".

"It would be better to lose two or three but win three or four more and then have six or eight more points and then a different position in the table".

Mourinho still speaks of free agent Ibrahimovic as part of the group, saying he is injured for the start of the season along with other "important players" like Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo.

Guardiola says current spending in football is unsustainable
Gabriel Jesus hopes competition between himself and Sergio Aguero can drive Manchester City towards success this season. But we can not forget that when we do something better than last season it's because we've been one year together.

The Portuguese coach says he is happy with the window so far.

He said: "It's not because I have always done it that I am going to do it".

"I understand the reality of the market, of the numbers and that my club by doing 75 percent of what I initially asked did very well".

"We are just in a position to do quality work better than in the first". No, I'm just myself.

The Brazilian made 34 Premier League appearances for the Blues last season, as they claimed the title, but 19 of them were as a substitute.

Another season without silverware will raise serious doubts as to whether he really is the man to carry City to the summit of European football for the first time.

This season, however, each of the Premier League's top seven will play in Europe, which Mourinho believes is a leveller.

"I don't think I am in a position to be moaning and crying".

A battering-ram striker in the finest Mourinho traditions, Lukaku's task is to sharpen an attack that mustered only 54 league goals last season. "There is no advantage for anyone".
