Manager Manuel Pellegrini was openly excited and optimistic about the upcoming campaign on Wednesday at City Live. Speaking to the large crowd of Blues faithful Pellegrini predicted great things for the side this season.
"I am absolutely sure we are going to have a very successful season.
"We must bring back the title back here to our fans.
"And all together, we must win game by game to try and do it."
"We need to play the way we know we how to play, and continue with our attacking style to score the most amount of goals.
"And we are absolutely sure we are going to bring the title back."
The Blues manager has several selection dilemmas to cope with ahead of the club's Premier League opener on Monday against West Brom. Last year's Premier League Golden Boot winner Sergio Aguero, Martin Demichelis, Pablo Zabaleta, Fabian Delph and Fernando are unavailable for selection. With limited senior depth chances are quite good that Pellegrini could hand full debuts to one or more recently promoted youth players.
