The Premier League is back in our lives! Manchester City finish the double-header against Swansea City today, once again at Liberty Stadium. Pep Guardiola and his men will look for a tenth consecutive victory to start the season, which would be a historic record and a truly sensational start.
No one expected such great football being played this early, not even Guardiola himself. Hell, even his reserve/academy players did well in the EFL Cup against the Swans, and it just doesn't look like Pep has only coached these players for just three months.
But this is a tough week: Swansea away, Celtic away (Champions League), Tottenham away. Three straight road games that will really test just how good this City team currently is. If the Citizens are still perfect after this run of games, then this is a really scary Pep Team.
But let's focus on beating Swansea for now!
