  • Manchester City midfielder Leroy Sane will be seeking a big season after missing out on the German squad for the World Cup

Liverpool were trailing when he was introduced after German global Leroy Sane, also behind some players in his preseason schedule, raced cleared of the Liverpool defence and confidently fired a shot under Caoimhin Kelleher for a 57th-minute opener. That it was against Man City, we lost against Dortmund so what does that mean?

The Blues failed to defend their Premier League title last season, with Pep Guardiola winning the league in historic fashion.

"We made 75 minutes incredible but the last 15 minutes we were so exhausted and there were some changes and of course their quality of the attacking players they deserved to score more goals at the end".

The Reds, then managed by Louis Van Gaal, initially fell behind courtesy of a Steven Gerrard spot-kick, but fought back with goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard to win 3-1 and claim the pre-season trophy.

Guardiola believes that despite building a strong resume last season at the Etihad Stadium that the best has yet to come for Sane, making him a risky work in progress.

"I think if you have the money, if you invest well, it is better than to have it in the bank".

David Silva has spoken about his future today.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says more records 'impossible'

Fernandinho plugged the gaps in midfield, dropped into City's backline when required, and made more tackles and interceptions combined (109) than any of his team-mates. You saw how well he played last season, improving, and he seems happy.

"When I finish my contract with Manchester City, I will be 34 years old. But we will go for it with all we have", the German boss added.

It all underlines the challenge for City when it comes to reinforcing the position.

There are not many players around with the necessary breadth of attributes for the role.

But when Guardiola was asked about Pjanic at a press conference in NY on Tuesday, he said: "Pjanic is a player of Juventus and we are not interested in him".

Mirror, UK, quoted Berbatov as saying, "The top four will be the same as last season but in this order - Manchester United, Spurs, Manchester City, and Liverpool".
