Pep Guardiola preview

“I understood when I watched them (Fulham) the reason why they are in the Premier League. They have really good players, experienced players and they try and (I like) the way they want to play.

“They want to make their own game, and I’m pretty sure Slavisa Jokanovic is going to make a good season.”

"Man City are an important football team. They have a great history and are making big steps to be competitive in all competitions. They are always available for the fight.

"We know it's not going to be easy playing at the Etihad, but it's a great chance for us. We have fought for this chance. We won't give up."
