Arsenal v Liverpool - Premier League
A target in the summer, Sanchez would add extra quality to the team

How do you improve on almost perfection? At the time of writing, Manchester City has won 55 points out of a possible 57, including the longest-ever top-flight winning streak of 17 and looked to already have the title wrapped up.

Do they really need to buy anyone in January?

They always say that those who stagnate go backwards, so why not look to improve where you can and get those players embedded in the next title challenge for the 2018/19 season? Well here’s a look at five players that Pep Guardiola should look at to improve one of the best teams in Premier League history.


#1 Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)

The man he wanted in the summer, Alexis Sanchez is a world-class footballer that adds yet another attacking dimension to City. Able to play out wide or centrally, his mix of pace and power has made him Arsenal’s best forward for the past few seasons.

However, after the team has struggled to mount any kind of title challenge, the Chilean has grown frustrated and is ready to jump at a chance to join up with his former manager at Barcelona. He already knows the system, fits perfectly as one of the wide forwards and could catapult the club into a potential quadruple territory.

Some will say he’ll unsettle the balance they have, others will state that he’ll only add to the competition up front. Others will ask for the club to wait to get him for free in the summer, while they should be saying that paying for a club like the Citizens isn’t too much of a hassle to get him right now.

A real difference maker, the 29-year-old has the quality to send them into the stratosphere.
