Ninety eight points. Ninety eight. But, they lost four games in the whole season.
After a joyous June and low-key July, August began with disappointment for Liverpool, beaten on penalties by their old foes in the FA Community Shield at Wembley. The biggest question arises “Will City defend their title or Liverpool will arise before them ???”
4 reasons to believe Manchester City will defend their title.
- Squad depth
Vigorous Start Lineup 1. Ederson 2. Walker 3. Stones 4. Danilo 5. Otamendi 6. K. De Bruyne 7. B. Silva 8. D. Silva 9. Sterling 10. Aguero 11. Sterling .
On bench :- Jesus, Rodrigo
Pep could very well deliever with two different line-ups in the new season.
- Momentum on their side
The most important factor of City is their momentum on every game. They are on the perfect wave of confidence in this new season. Confidence also has been built up afte winning agajn the Reds (Liverpool) on FA Community Shield.
With only four loss in the entire previous season, they could be an unstoppable force.
- Winning Mentality
Pep Guardiola is the man with winning foot-steps. The former Bayern Munich and Barcelona has made sure that his players don’t play any match just for a solitary point. He expects three points in any match, and also gives his effort and positive mindset to players. His enthusiasm in field is delightful to watch, and we can see the passion in his guidance.
- Similar squad with some changes
Captain and Legend,33-years-old, Vincent Kompany has left the club and joined RSC Anderlecht this july. Fans had a heart-break for this departure, but Stones, Walker, Otamendi are still there in order to prevent the walls. The players are quite familiar with each other and co-ordination in their forms has peaked to the top. We expect some magic from the squads and new signing, Rodrigo.
