Manchester City make enquiry over Sergio Busquets availability?

With the Spanish striker still on the Blues roster, despite his clear willingness to head back to Spain, Chelsea looks to another Spaniard to fill the void left by Costa.

After selling Romelu Lukaku, Everton began to buy a lot of players who aren't quite good enough to play for a top 6 team to try to get into the top 6. Much could depend on whether they can hang on to the mercurial Philippe Coutinho and fend off continuing interest from Barcelona. "In those terms, we're so happy".

Chelsea cruised to the title in Antonio Conte's debut campaign last season but Crespo says a settled Mourinho will bring the title back to Old Trafford next May.

Arsenal is also looking to retain the core of its team as it looks to return to the top four. Guardiola likes the versatility that fullbacks can provide. The old guard were removed and even club legend Zabaleta realised the time had come to move on.

Last season was arguably the worst of Pep Guardiola's managerial career. The replacements have been spectacular.

Here we take a look at 25 facts and figures to sum up the 25 years of the rebranded competition. The first full programme then kicks in over the weekend as the usual suspects vie for early supremacy having splashed the cash to cement their title aspirations. On his own, how will Rooney feel lining up against Manchester United? The team will be more dangerous in attack, and solid in defense, with the new three at the back formation.

The fact that the club has so much money and so much talent hasn't changed the way City fans feel: we are not optimistic.

Manchester City's goalkeeper situation was akin to a soap opera last season. Guardiola has addressed the situation and addressed it well.

As is often the case, the derby clashes could prove decisive once again, with United set to host City on 9 December at the Theatre of Dreams before making the short return trip on 7 April. Yaya, Fernandinho and Gundogan offer central midfield options.

Still shaky in defence, potential signing Virgil Van Dijk could plug the leaks but manager Jurgen Klopp still has work to do if he wants to keep his side in the top four this season and win his first trophy in England.

The focus may have been on Manchester last season, but the title went to the capital and the run-in was a battle between two London clubs.

However, while Shearer (1995) and Henry (2004) won the Premier League titles, we have this season to find out if Kane will join this select few players who won the Premier League and the top-scorers' award three year in a row. The improvements made indicate a first lesson learned.

This young star has ice in his veins and is already banging the back of the net on numerous occasions during pre-season, most noticeably against Real Madrid and Spurs. That familiarity carries with it an easy way to pick a favorite.

One piece of advice for visiting fan: Away fans who turn up within 30 minutes of the gates opening (two hours before kickoff) can get a pint of beer, hot dog or pie for £2.50 inside the stadium. He will be key to replacing Swedish veteran Ibrahimovic. The best games on the schedule will probably be free to access for anyone with a standard cable subscription.

"Last season saw the biggest drop in live Premier League TV viewing figures for seven years, hitting both Sky and BT".

The final match on Saturday will see newcomers Brighton and Hove Albion pitted against one of the title favourites Manchester City.
