Manchester City weren’t impressive last season in Premier League after they finished at the 4th position. In this season they expect better results, but for them the most important thing is to reach the group phase of the UEFA Champions League. Manchester City will play the first leg against Steaua Bucureşti and that match is crucial for them. Despite that fact, it doesn’t mean that they will not be interested against Sunderland. Josep Guardiola’s team is one of the main favorites to win BPL and they will be fully motivated to take all three points at the start of new season. The most important players from previous season stay in the club, while on the other side they brought few very good players such as John Stones (Everton), Leroy Sané (FC Schalke 04), Gabriel Jesus (Palmeiras), Nolito (Celta de Vigo) and Ilkay Gündogan (Borussia Dortmund).
Sunderland played very poor in the previous season and they were one of the main candidate for relegation, but they have improved their performance in the finish of the season and stayed in Premier League. Sunderland appointed David Moyes as their new manager and their main goal this season is to avoid relegation as soon as possible. The club left Emanuele Giaccherini (Napoli) and Steven Fletcher (Sheffield Wednesday), while on the other side they bought Papy Djilobodji from Chelsea and hope that their defence will be better this season. In the previous season, Sundeland lost both matches in Premier League against Man City. Team from Manchester beat them 0-1 at the Stadium of Light, while at Etihad Manchester City smashed Sunderland 4-1.
Home side will be without their new players Gündogan due to knee injury, while Sané is not ready yet for debut. On the other side visitors could be without Jermain Defoe, but he should start this game. Adnan Januzaj, McNair and Love are all joined to club and some of them could debut against Man City.
Manchester City are big favorites to win this game and they will be fully motivated to win this game. On the other side, Sundeland have nothing to lose and they will try to do their best in order to make positive result. In the previous matches between Manchester City vs Sunderland we’ve seen many goals in both nets, so I expect another effective games and goals in both nets.
