Man City players happy with three at the back, says Kompany

If we have to score more then we will score more. "He's a little bit behind on fitness probably, which is normal and we'll need him at the right time".

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he is grateful to the club's board for the signing of "intelligent" playmaker Bernardo Silva, who the Catalan believes is ready to make an immediate Premier League impact.

"The mentality of the manager is playing good and winning - not just winning", Toure told reporters.

Playing three at the back may enable Guardiola to associate Aguero and Jesus in attack, after he generally used a single-striker system last season following Jesus's arrival in January.

The pair enjoyed incredible success together at the Nou Camp during Guardiola's five-year spell at the Nou Camp - winning 14 trophies.

RBI dividend to government halves to $4.78 billion
Chidambaram further asked RBI if it will reveal breakdown of the Rs 50,000 crore loss/expenditure. Also, RBI had to shell out higher interest payouts to banks in the reverse repo window.

"Going to the Champions League in September, if we don't get Real Madrid we can get another of the top teams in Europe, one of the champions of the best leagues and I think this, this Super Cup was a really good experience for us".

"Danilo is 26, (Benjamin) Mendy is 23, Bernardo (Silva) is 22, Ederson is 23, so we bought players who are going to be stable for the next years".

Empowered by a close-season transfer splurge of some £200 million ($264.8 million, 233.5 million euros), Manchester City are the early favourites to topple Premier League champions Chelsea. The midfielder is the embodiment of Pep Guardiola and his footballing philosophy.

Joe Hart has once again been sent out on loan and Kelechi Iheanacho, Nolito, Fernando and Aleksandar Kolarov have all been sold.

"We used the pre-season to work since day one, to work and to try to improve things that we already do".
