Man City's Pep Guardiola: I'm not under extra pressure this season

However, these upstarts look like they will sustain our interests past the first few weeks of the season.

At 26, N'Golo Kante is approaching the peak years of his career. Crystal Palace and Sunderland fall into both categories, sharing the promotion honours with Leicester and West Brom and the relegation record with Middlesbrough and Norwich.

Mr. Wagner of Huddersfield has promised to be true to his philosophy of playing good football.

When it comes to the Premier League lately, cynicism has won out, so I'm going to go with United as the 2017-18 EPL Champions. The hole left in their defense could kill their top 10 aspirations.

But Eyre is keen for any notions of a "Pep protege" to come with some perspective as boyhood City fan Foden makes himself at home among £200m-worth of new signings.

Done deals, gossip and rumours as they break throughout the day.

Sean Dyche is an extremely clever manager, and even if his men are feeling more confident having survived last season when so many people wrote them off, he'll know that this is a game his team are very unlikely to win and hopefully he will set them up with the intention to frustrate Chelsea. United's experiment with the back three under Louis van Gaal may not have ended happily, but the recent success Chelsea have had with such a system suggests it was United's execution at fault, rather than the idea itself.

Manchester United's big summer signing in 1992 was striker Dion Dublin for £1m (the equivalent of nearly £2m in today's money). Nine months of drama, melodrama, histrionics, great goals, confected controversies, laughably bad dives and Jose Mourinho.

We begin with with two of those teams.

"If we can keep (captain) Vincent Kompany fit and in the team alongside the new signings, then I think we have everything ready for a very successful 2017/18 campaign".

Ibrahim told of how his son has an upcoming trial at United's Premier League rivals Southampton and had made a special promise to his father after being handed the medal. In his first season at a new club he lops off the dead wood and the following summer he buys the players he wants (in the current instance Lukaku and Matic). Although it would be disingenuous to compare the football industry to Mugabe's regime (or Kyle Walker to a loaf of bread), the end result in these two situations is not too dissimilar - highly inflated prices.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the lone player to reach double figures in the league with 17, while Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney were the next best with a mere six.

Baba Grumpy works in financial services in the United Kingdom.

"Like him, we all have to prove that we are Premier League players and a Premier League club as well". Don't look at the pundits for answers. "But the training rights and future sales of the player are guaranteed gains". "It will not be easy but we travel to win the game".

Up front, an embarrassment of options. Wenger insists Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil - the former seemingly far more coveted than the latter - will not be sold despite entering the final year of their contracts.

After spending millions in the window, will the likes of Man United and Man City display almost perfect football, or will they fail to meet their silverware aspirations this season?

"Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces".
