In the International Champions Cup campaign of Manchester City, the team of Pep Guardiola faced off with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.

All of these matches were played in the time-lapse of 8 days with the 1st one taking place on July 21st at the Reliant Stadium in Houston Texas. This was the only ICC game that Manchester City lost as the final scoreboard displayed 0-2 in favor of Jose Mourinho´s squad.

The following 2 games saw Manchester City claiming successive triumphs over Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur, both of those matches were very dominant from City as they won with a 3 goal margin.

Pep Guardiola expressed his thoughts concerning the performance of his players as the Spanish tactician said:

“I’m so happy for all of them involved. Of course, the results are good for confidence and the way we did it, our performance is good. I’m so satisfied especially in the last two games – no injuries, then we come back home, rest and prepare.”

“You have the quality with Kyle and Danilo, they have that physicality. Some days we’ll play three at the back but sometimes we’ll play with four.”

This is the type of results and performances that Pep Guardiola want to see from his team as they had to settle with the 3rd spot of the English Premier League during the previous season of 2016-17 and are now aiming for a better position or maybe even targeting the top spot and become the new champions of England.

The 2017-18 season of the English Premier League is expected to kick off on August 11 and the opening match of Manchester City is going to see them locking horns with Brighton & Hove Albion on August 12.

Pep Guardiola is hoping that his squad can initiate the upcoming season on a positive start and defeat Brighton and hopefully continue doing so throughout the entirety of their campaign.
