Cox: One big question for the top six

Now many pundits' favourites for this season's Premier League title, Manchester City's transfer business has been eye-catching.

According to the British media reports, City have spent over 200 million pounds ($259.62 million) on full-backs Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo, goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva.

His display in the first leg was one the the best any opposition player has delivered at the Etihad in recent seasons, with his ability to retain possession and create chances for his teammates carving City open on a number of occasions.

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed".

Guardiola said: "Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

Pep Guardiola promised Manchester City would rein in its unprecedented levels of spending after overseeing an outlay of approaching $500 million in his first year in charge.

"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan.

"I think Lukaku is going to do well at United, he's given them a different dimension, but you can't look past Harry Kane". The arrival of 11 "important" players - as Guardiola refers to them - has handed the Spanish coach an embarrassment of riches up in attack and fresh energy throughout his squad, which now has an average age of 24. But then there was in 2008 when we were a League One side, City were newly-crowned the "world´s richest club" already with many star players - and we beat them in the League Cup at our humble Withdean Stadium home.

It was a breath of fresh air to be able to watch the Houston Texans play football on Wednesday for the first time in what felt like forever.

"The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time. The market is what it is but sooner or later it is going to finish".

Guardiola spent around £200m this summer to bring in five players. "It will not be easy but we travel to win the game". "The big fail now takes one week in football!"

"It's the same pressure as I had last season", Guardiola explained.

He added: "But we prefer to be aggressive without the ball, it's the same as last season".

Texas 'Back to School' sales tax holiday begins Friday
Back-to-school season is here, and parents will be able to save a little money during the annual Sales Tax Holiday this weekend. Items priced at $100 or more pay the full amount of sales tax, according to the state comptroller's website.

However, the argument can be made that Man City should be made title favorites this season, as they have completed multiple tasks this summer and have done the most upgrading out of any of the top six clubs in England.

"I'm honest in my job". We have to deal with that and handle that. Every game is a battle, especially with the teams who arrive in the first four, five or six games - they are so complicated, especially away.
