BeIN Sports secures MENA Premier League rights until 2022

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he is relaxed about his team being Premier League title favourites once again.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah - a contender to play at centre half, but most probably at right back, considering United's options - has arrived at Premier League newcomers Fulham to agree a season long loan after spending past year on loan at Selhurst Park.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group [of World Cup players] because everybody is different physically and mentally to see how they feel, how they are and to understand if they think how they can help or not help".

Manchester City finished 19 points ahead of runners up Manchester United to highlight the clear gap between the Citizens and their title rivals in a one-sided campaign.

"My view is that, first of all, it is hard for me to believe we finished second because when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - you [the media] are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, you make them look like serial winners".

I just don't know, if I was an owner, I'm thinking, 'Well you've had a lot of money on these players, you don't fancy them. Toby Alderweireld remains another option, largely because Tottenham have made it clear they are willing to sell.

The Reds were one of the most exciting teams to watch in world football last season, thrilling fans with their own unique brand of expansive, high-octane football.

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues".

Mourinho guided Manchester United to their best Premier League finish since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but the 55-year-old coach has insisted that he wants to sign two more players before the end of the transfer window.

"The target is Leicester match and the tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button", he said. "In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now. He had a good pre-season".

380 games per season will be screened exclusively live on beIN, in addition to magazine shows and pre- and post-match coverage.
