Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards says "Pep Guardiola will be desperate to wrestle the title back".
City finished second, 18-points behind Premier League winners Liverpool in the 2019/20 season. Ahead of the upcoming season, Guardiola's side have made two signings during the transfer window as they welcomed Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres.
“City's football under him has been majestic and it's puzzling how a squad packed full of world-class stars lost nine league games and ended up 18 points behind Liverpool,” Richards told the Daily Mail.
“Guardiola will be desperate to wrestle the title back. The title race will be tighter this season.”
“Let's stop the talk about Foden being one for the future. This is his time, this is his season He is not here to replace the departed David Silva, he's here to write his own story," he added.
“Foden will be playing regularly for England in 12 months. We know about his special ability and already have seen enough glimpses of it.
“I have no doubt he is ready to shine — for Pep Guardiola and Gareth Southgate.”
