Manchester City break £500 million revenue barrier in record year

Today's match is NOT on TV in the United Kingdom but is in other parts of the world. The Serbian striker has hit the ground running in the new campaign, registering four goals in his last three outings.

Guardiola was promoted to the position having previously been in charge of the club's B team, and chose to bring Sergio Busquets into the first team set-up with him.

Germany World Cup-winner Toni Kroos claimed Sane - left out of City's squad for their 2-1 win over Newcastle before the global break - must improve his attitude and body language. After that, I don't know.

"After an worldwide break it's always a mystery how you'll come back, and Fulham asked us a lot of questions". Something that I'd never seen before.

He added: "I hope you have enjoyed these last 10 years and I promise the next 10 will be no less exciting".

Mansour, a member of Abu Dhabi's royal family, has reportedly invested more than £1.3 billion ($1.7bn) in City, developing state-of-the-art facilities at their home base and transforming them into one of Europe's elite.

De Bruyne is recovering from a knee ligament injury picked up in training, which is expected to keep him out until November, although Guardiola says his recovery is "progressing well".

Sane, who opened the scoring inside two minutes, said: "A fantastic week for me - I became a daddy this week!"

The Cottagers were eventually put out of their misery, though, with the final scoreline flattering Slavisa Jokanovic's side on a day which saw them completely outclassed by the champions.

"We were fighting for this kind of chance, and we must be ready for the fight, we must be ready for everything we're going to find there. We showed some shyness today, like we didn't want to hurt them".

A back complaint ruled the 23-year-old winger out of the double-header but Guardiola confirmed he has the all-clear for Fulham's visit to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
