NEW THREADS: The boys in the 2016/17 kit.

Four City fixtures have been amended for TV coverage in the first two months of the season.

We'll start with our opening day game against Sunderland on 13 August - the date remains the same but the match now will start at 5.30pm on Saturday evening, coverage with BT.

Next up is the Blues' trip to Stoke City the following weekend (20 August) - this game will now begin at 12,30pm and will be shown on Sky.

City's third match in - a home clash with West Ham United - has now moved from Saturday 27 August to Sunday 28 August with a kick-off time of 4pm for Sky coverage.

Finally, Pep Guardiola's first Manchester derby against United at Old Trafford will now kick-off earlier on 10 September with a 12.30pm start.

So City's first four matches are all affected by TV coverage - there are likely to be more changes announced when the October and November schedules are revealed in the coming months.
