Leroy Sane says Maurizio Sarri is Man City's biggest title threat

How Guardiola motivates his players: If you have to hate me, hate me 'Some of you play better when you're angry with me. If you hate me, hate me'

Pep Guardiola believes it is "almost impossible" for Manchester City to break any of the records set in last season's Premier League title triumph.

City made history by winning the Premier League title with a 100-point haul.

The Premier League this season closes early with the window closing on August 9 following an agreement by member sides to close the window on the eve of the new season.

"The target is win the next game and how to prepare to win the game, that is the target". I completely understand. I am not concerned about what one of us said one day and the circumstances. It is genuinely scary to imagine how much better they might be next season - a trend we've seen with all of his previous sides.

Foden is keen for more opportunities to showcase his undoubted talent but says patience is key for young players.

Guardiola meanwhile said he was unfazed by the lavish spending of City's Premier League rivals.

"Last year was a good year for me. If you play the whole season, then come the end it can be really hard". "Nobody knows what will happen this season, nobody".

"I've been brought on as a player and now I feel more mature and comfortable, playing with the first-team players".

"The squad is what makes the team better".

However, following Chelsea's managerial appointment of Italian tactician Maurizio Sarri, Sane believes they're the biggest threat to City in the new season.

Like Liverpool, Man City also lost their opening ICC game to Borussia Dortmund, in which Riyad Mahrez and Joe Hart featured, and both could be involved once again against the Reds.

"The result was not the mirror of the game, but it's more important in this period the performance", former Napoli boss Sarri told chelseafc.com.

"They (Chelsea) might need some time to get used to his tactics but they could be a really tough team".
