Klopp: Incredible Manchester City are definite Premier League favourites

"And, in some ways, I'm glad it's not the Premier League holding that particular record". Despite the Belgian ending the campaign strongly and having an impressive pre-season, I feel Conte will not leave almost 70 million pounds worth of a player on the bench.

Alexander-Arnold showed he wouldn't be overawed by his step up when he flattened Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery during a recent pre-season friendly.

The overall view is that this will be one of the most exciting campaigns yet, but it is the Blues many are tipping to top the pile next May. Everything above that is gravy.

The transfer window is still open for another three weeks. Mauricio Pochettino will have to prioritize one or two over the rest.

"In a unusual quirk of fate, 34 years ago, in the 1982-83 season, Brighton's last top-flight home game was also against City, where they were also looking for a positive result but for very different reasons".

But whatever the end total and tactics employed, Guardiola has to turn the title favourites into title holders. Not surprisingly perhaps, all the top six clubs from last season have retained their managers.

"I think he's close to coming back".

Manchester City, which last won the title in 2014, and Manchester United, which has now gone through a five-year drought since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, are the two favorites to lift the league champion trophy in May.

"We need to transform the quality of the preparation into points and that is, of course, a pragmatic view", Wenger said. This season I believe he will start the same and stick with Courtois in goal, a back three of David Luiz, new club captain Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta. United looked good in both aspects, but poor finishing let them down and Mourinho resorted to playing his own pragmatic way as the season wore on.

I think this is a massive jump up for Huddersfield.

"The other teams aren't stagnating as well".

"It's getting much harder for everyone, so we don't know". Watch enough Spurs matches, and you're bound to catch a couple of stunners from the two-time Golden Boot victor.

Would you, in your hear of hearts, be content to see Spurs sitting in fifth place after matchweek 38?

"It doesn't mean you can't deal with them but the law of averages say the way you are going to stay in the Premier League is by winning the games against the teams that are around you".

He added to BBC Radio 5 live: "I can't see anything like that [in the Premier League]. We don't want to take any risks".

Sandwiched between the two sides last season was Tottenham.

Arsenal is looking to get back into the league's top four, at the very least.

What's new: Arguably Spurs are the most settled side in the EPL with no major new signings.

For Australian fans, there'll be the added attraction of watching Socceroo midfielder Aaron Mooy in the English Premier League for the first time after Huddersfield won promotion from the championship and chose to buy the on-loan Mooy. I still contact them and even the physiotherapists. It wasn't easy for them carrying a target on their backs last season. Time will tell. But there's no doubt the pressure is on after City finished a whopping 15 points behind Chelsea last season. This should be a straight forward win really for the home team, but as its opening day, anything could happen.
