Chelsea v Arsenal The ultimate Community Shield preview pack

Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea will all enjoy lower taxes for 2017/18 because the value of their stadiums have fallen under the Government's controversial rates review earlier this year.

"You've got the season ahead to look forward to and everyone's raring to go".

"We haven't been able to beat them yet but there's always a first time and it would be nice to think it would be Friday night".

Ozil is a doubt against Leicester, however, along with Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi, while Laurent Koscielny is suspended.

Liverpool and Tottenham push the boundaries on physical endurance as they press, press then press some more. They can't all be displaced, and we think that if we were broadcasting all of ours we would be impacting upon that. Incredible player - and now they got some defenders as well.

Even so, Conte has done his best to get billionaire Blues owner Roman Abramovich to throw his financial muscle behind Chelsea's title defence. Both Jose Mourinho and his former Barcelona counterpart endured league campaigns that were inconsistent and full of the urge to discover the tactical identities that the managers want to impose.

Arsene Wenger brokered a fragile truce with Arsenal's dissenting fans by winning the FA Cup last season, but the Gunners boss has no margin for error after going 13 years without Premier League glory.

"It won't be easy", the Italian said.

'It's a cliché but true that if you stand still in the Premier League you go back.

"For us, it's a great challenge to try and retain the title".

Newcastle's need for a proven striker in particular was illustrated when last season's leading scorer Gayle sat out with a hamstring issue which has been a concern for some months, and their interest in Stoke's Joselu and Arsenal's Lucas Perez has so far come to nothing.

No other top club manager can claim the control he enjoys at the Etihad and that's the reason I make Manchester City favourites to win the title this year.

Mark Rigby, chief executive of CVS, said: "Because of the complex way the business rates system works, we're actually comparing valuations from 2008 and 2015".

They return to the fray this weekend having spent around £200 million on players and Guardiola believes an exciting new team is taking shape.

Both of these teams lost their first game of the season this time previous year, Arsenal going down 3-4 at home to Liverpool whilst Leicester slipped to defeat against newly-promoted Hull City in their first game as reigning champions.

City are followed by Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham - and Everton face all four in their first five matches of the season, adding extra importance to their opening clash with West Brom.
