Three reasons Manchester City can win the Premier League in Pep Guardiola's debut season

There are no easy games in the Premier League, something that Pep Guardiola will have learned in his first two games, despite claiming three points from both of them. Pep came to England because he wanted a challenge and the Premier League is more than capable of providing that. Here are three reasons why Manchester City can win the league in Pep Guardiola’s first season as manager.

Vast range of attacking options

Pep Guardiola’s side are yet to keep a clean sheet but they have scored five goals in two games which highlights the quality they have going forward. In their 4-1 victory over Stoke, Aguero and new signing Nolito scored twice.

If Sergio Aguero becomes injured during the season, Nolito should be able to lead the line a lot better than Wilfred Bony ever has. In addition to Nolito, Guardiola can also call on academy graduate Iheanacho who provided a fantastic assist for Nolito’s first goal against Stoke.


Raheem Sterling looks like the player who nearly won the league with Liverpool a few seasons and seems to be flourishing under Guardiola’s tutelage. He won the penalty, which Sergio Aguero duly converted, against Sunderland after just four minutes played in City’s opening match. Then in Man City’s second game against Stoke, he provided the assist for Nolito’s second goal. Sterling still has a lot of work to do but, with Pep’s encouragement, he is on the right track.

Guardiola still has new signings Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan to come into the side once they recover from injury. Manchester City’s attacking options are seemingly endless.
