The new Premier League season starts next week and there is one question running through the minds of opposing teams – can anyone stop the Manchester City juggernaut?
The 2022/23 season will be remembered as much for Arsenal's incredible slip up that cost them the league title that was theirs for the taking.
Arsenal enjoyed an eight-point lead over City until mid-March but lost their way at the end of April as Guardiola's team not only clinched their third consecutive title but used the confidence from that campaign to lift the Champions League crown for the first time.
City will be looking to match the success of an incredible 2022/23 season when they start the new campaign against Burnley on Friday.
The Manchester side will be making a fresh start of sorts, following the departure of captain Ilkay Gundogan and winger Riyad Mahrez.
They have brought in some reinforcements, signing RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic.
Arsenal take on Nottingham Forest at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, while Chelsea meet Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and Manchester United face Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday.
