Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said on Friday that he will only dip into the transfer market for a "special" talent after a relatively quiet summer of business for the Premier League champions. On Monday, ESPN+ will feature a highlight show recapping Sunday's match.
The squad will be nearly identical to the one that smashed all sorts of Premier League records last season and they're understandablyodds-on shots to be the first to retain the Premier League title in ten years but a disrupted start to their 2018/19 campaign is a distinct possibility.

Willian and Loftus-Cheek were two of the players who returned from extended breaks this week, and the duo are unlikely to be fit enough to start against Manchester City.
The new Manager clearly wanted a former player to lead the way as he aimed to bring a new style of football to the Bridge and the 26-year-old looks the ideal conductor for the Sarri orchestra.
Pep said of Sarri.
But the duo are sure to be key going forward as City attempt to become the first team since Manchester United in 2008-09 to retain the Premier League crown.
"The match is very hard for one reason". I think he will be ideal for English football.
"I want to win, because it's very important to have a trophy immediately".
"Also, for Chelsea it is not the ideal situation - they've had more time together in this part, but we have the work from the last two seasons". We made it clear from the day I arrived we want him, but deals are deals, agents are agents and players are players.
