The Englishman joined Thomas Tuchel's side in a deal reportedly worth around £50 million.
Temi said: “I guarantee Manchester City will not win the league. They have been arrogant to sell Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus to rival clubs.”
“When you think about Sterling in Pep Guardiola’s tenure, Messi has scored the most goals for him(at Barcelona), followed by Sergio Aguero and then it’s Raheem Sterling.”
“When you look at an amazing team, don’t just look at the starting 11, look at the bench, Man City they had Sterling and Jesus on their bench.”
He added: “If you look back at the last game of last season when City came back to beat Aston Villa, Sterling was instrumental in setting up two of Gundogan’s goals.”
“I know Haaland he’s only 22 and he looks amazing but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will guarantee he will win Man City all these honours.”
“I think Man City have actually kind of strengthened and weakened at the same time, I think they needed to add Haaland in and do everything in their power to keep Sterling and Jesus. Clubs can use five substitutions now aswell, I honestly think it is a little bit arrogant.”
Brazilian Jesus completed a move from the Etihad to the Emirates last month in a £45 million deal, by moving to Arsenal, Jesus has been reunited with Mikel Arteta, the pair worked together at City when the Gunners boss was Pep Guardiola’s assistant.
The striker got off to the perfect start after scoring twice on his debut to help Arsenal come back from 2-0 down to win 5-3 against German second tier side FC Nuremberg.

Guardiola will hope that losing Sterling and Jesus will not impact them as much as Temi is predicting. They have brought in Norwegian striker Erling Haaland and young Argentine forward Julian Alvarez to bolster their attacking options.
The pressure will be firmly placed on the Norway superstar as he is thought to be the final piece of the puzzle that will allow City to finally get their hands on the elusive Champions League trophy. The European cup remains the only trophy that Guardiola has failed to win during his time at the Etihad.
