So much was expected of Pep Guardiola on his introduction to the Premier League. And in the beginning he delivered with some stunning performances and results in the late summer months for Manchester City.
Beating Manchester United at Old Trafford really set tongues wagging and few if any people were betting against Manchester City for the title at that point. But a dodgy winter and perhaps too much tinkering from the Spaniard set Manchester City back and they never really recovered. A strong finish since has shown that there is still real promise here.
There is also the promise of much more investment to come this summer. Next season we should see serious title challengers. There was some really exciting football played and loads of goals scored.
Best player: Sergio Aguero has to be seen as Manchester City’s star man again as he almost guarantees goals when he plays football. But the midseason introduction of Gabriel Jesus was also extremely exciting and had he not been injured he could well have been the undoubted star of the season for Manchester City. He only turned up in January but he really got bums off seats and his potential is amazing.
Worst Player: This was a really easy decision and it’s impossible to look past the butterfingers of Claudio Bravo. Bought to replace Joe Hart for £17 million he has to be one of the worst purchases that we have seen in Premier League history. He settled down somewhat after a really shaky start but he is clearly not a top level keeper and TFF thinks that Hart is a far superior stopper.
