Stadium: The Etihad Stadium
Head Coach: Pep Guardiola
Nickname: The Citizens, the Sky Blues
Rival: Manchester United
Top-Division Titles: Six (1936–37, 1967–68, 2011–12, 2013–14, 2017–18, 2018–19)

Best possible XI:
Key arrivals: Rodri (Atletico Madrid), Angelino (PSV Eindhoven), Joao Cancelo (Juventus)
Key departures: Vincent Kompany (Anderlecht), Fabian Delph (Everton), Douglas Luiz (Aston Villa), Arijanet Muric (loan, Nottingham Forest), Philippe Sandler (loan, Anderlecht), Tosin Adarabioyo (loan, Blackburn Rovers), Danilo (Juventus)
Ranking their offseason: Rodri is a huge addition, but Guardiola would’ve like to have seen an addition to his center back corps before the window slams shut until January. That didn’t happen but they did add Cancelo at right back. 7/10.
Star player: Raheem Sterling — For everything we expected of the English youngster when he blossomed at Liverpool and exploded under Pep Guardiola’s guidance, who expected such an ethereal attacking threat to find his place amongst the best attackers in the game?
Coaches’ Corner: Pep Guardiola — Maybe you’ve heard of him? The world’s best manager returns for, perhaps, a final run in Manchester?
PST predicts: A three-peat? Injuries and a wayward eye from the UEFA Champions League seem the only things that can stop the blue side of Manchester from becoming the first three-time defending champion since United turned the trick in 2006-07, 2007-08, and 2008-09.
