Youth gives Guardiola, Man City glimpse of squad depth

The ICC has been important for City on the defensive side as well, with youthful players like 17-year-old Eric Garcia and 19-year-old Cameron Humphreys-Grant earning significant minutes for a back line that conceded the fewest amount of goals in 2017/18.

"In the worst moment of my life, Pep and the people at City showed me the kind of love that you can only appreciate when you have been in that kind of crisis".

'I'm concerned for many things, for injured players, players who are still not here but I am so satisfied for what all of the guys on the tour have done'.

City's official Twitter account shared the thoughts of Guardiola on the upcoming Premier League season, as the former Barcelona boss argued: "Liverpool are always contenders to win the title".

"It's going to be very hard, especially this year with the big teams Man United, Arsenal, Chelsea spending lots of money to get very good players", Silva said. "To win two consecutive leagues is very complicated but we'll try to do that", concluded Silva.

"If you have any problems or when you are feeling a little bit down, then look at that".

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané made an instant impact as Liverpool came from behind to beat Premier League champions Manchester City 2-1 in their International Champions Cup friendly match last night, while Tottenham Hotspur trounced Roma 4-1.

"It depends on him", Guardiola told the club's official website.

The Bayern keeper was being kept busy and on 51 minutes, he was picking the ball out of the back of the net once more after Silva fed Foden and when his curling shot was parried, Nmecha was on hand to steer home from close. "He is a top player, but we are not interested in him". "Still, he is far away from his best". I'm here, I'm part of the team, I'm part of the squad.

"For 75 incredible minutes, the players were so exhausted but worked so hard and for the last part of the game Liverpool brought on incredible quality and deserved to score the goals in the end". Our personality was incredible. "The average age of our players in the first half was very young".

The pair are set to meet in an International Champions Cup clash in Florida in what will be Bayern's third pre-season outing under new coach Kovac.
