The arrival of Manuel Pellegrini and a host of quality players has Gael Clichy excited about the new Premier League season.

Manchester City have lured Chilean tactician Pellegrini from Malaga whilst signing Jesus Navas, Fernandinho, Alvaro Negredo, Stevan Jovetic and Martin Demichelis in the summer transfer window and Clichy feels that is a recipe for success.

"New players have joined the team and we also have a new coach, so we have all the ingredients to win the title again," Clichy told the Manchester Evening News.

"This is not only a question about the number we have, but it is also a question of mental strength. We can do it, we want to do it, and we'll try anything, but at the moment we have to wait to see what will happen throughout the season.

"Having a new coach is the most important thing because everybody wants to work hard to show they all deserve a place in the squad.

"Of course, we had a great team two years ago and also last year and now, with four new players who have just arrived, we have an even better group.

"There are some great qualities in our team - Jesus Navas, Fernandinho is working really hard in midfield, and up front we have Negredo and Stevan Jovetic, who are really talented players.

"So overall, I think the team has a good balance. We just have to work, listen to what the coach wants us to do and the success we can bring the trophy to the club at the end of the season."
