Pep Guardiola had to clear lots of things from his squad that finished third last season and he did exactly that. The defence saw a major haul with the Catalan manager spending in excess off £220m in all this summer.

They raided AS Monaco for Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva while right-backs Kyle Walker and Danilo were signed from Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid.

Plus, there is lot to be choose from attack.  Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus will fight for starting spots while Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva fight for two spots in midfield.

Meanwhile Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling will battle for a winger’s role.

Guardiola has maintained his trust in Fernandinho even after his sloppy performances last season (remember the three red cards?). Ilkay Gundogan is always on the treatment table while Yaya Toure is on his last legs.

However, not having Sanchez will remain a setback for Manchester City as they did all what they could to have him & thought the deal is done &  Arsenal eventually stayed true to their word by not releasing him because they couldn’t line up a replacement in time.

Loaned out players

Joe Hart (West Ham), Patrick Roberts (Celtic), Jason Denayer (Galatasaray), Pablo Maffeo (Girona), Kean Bryan (Oldham), Angus Gunn (Norwich), Ashley Smith-Brown (Hearts), Aaron Nemane (Rangers), Bersant Celina (Ipswich), Kjetil Haug (CF Peralada), Brandon Barker (Hibernian), Paolo Fernandes (NAC Breda), Thierry Ambrose (NAC Breda), Angelino (NAC Breda), Isaac Buckley-Ricketts (Twente), Aleix Garcia (Girona), Manu Garcia (NAC Breda), Rodney Kongolo (Doncaster), Pablo Mari (NAC Breda), Marlos Moreno (Girona).
