New boys impress Stateside

ON FORM: Ederson, along with City's other new signings, impressed the media out in the States.

With Manchester City’s pre-season tour concluded, there’s pause for reflection in Tuesday’s media roundup.

The Premier League returns in less than a fortnight and after a busy tour schedule there is plenty to talk about following the three-game International Champions Cup.

James Robson of the Manchester Evening News is the man pondering all things City Stateside.

Possible incomings, analysis of all three games, youth and the Blues' title credentials are all up for a post-tour discussion in a wide-ranging piece.

And there’s also a mention for several individuals, who Robson felt impressed across the Atlantic.

He writes: “Ederson was outstanding following his blunder against United. Guardiola looks to have found an imposing goalkeeper, with quick feet, who looks tailor made to double up as a sweeper like Manuel Neuer at Bayern Munich.

"Kyle Walker’s wide play against Tottenham - in the face of boos from his former fans - was evidence of what City’s new full backs will bring to the club.

"He and Benjamin Mendy will be given licence to pin opposition full backs in their own half with their relentless pressing.

Kevin de Bruyne destroyed Real - and in Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz, City have two academy prospects who must make the step up to the first team sooner rather than later.”

That’s it for today, but we’ll be back tomorrow with more City paper talk.
