Now in his second season in charge, Mourinho has had time to run his eye over the squad and shake out any bad habits they may have developed under previous managers.

The 26th season of the English Premier League kicks off on Friday and football fans can not wait for the opening game between Arsenal and Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium. Then when their manager, Conte, did agree to sign a new contract, the contract length was no different, his wage was simply increased.

The leap from City's academy to the star-filled first team has proved to be too big for most, but Foden appears good enough to make the transition. Harry Kane is the best finisher with the types of goals he scores so I'd go for him if I had to bet on the nose but I do fancy Lacazette each-way at 10/1.

Pep has always been a huge admirer of Busquets and back in 2012, the 46-year-old labelled him as the best defensive midfielder in world football. My aim is to try to improve my players, to try to improve my team. We were not able with those players to find a solution.

6 - Liverpool - Jurgen Klopp will have to struggle to keep Coutinho from going to Barcelona, and will also have to maintain the fitness of top players in his side. Naturally, a few names spring to mind, but the only thing we can guarantee at this stage is that whoever this player is, their boss is not going to be happy.

Despite making such significant investments, Guardiola claimed City have actually saved money by getting the majority of their transfer business done earlier in the close season.

He said: "We have a giant on our chest which is really heavy, but we don't compare to the biggest clubs in Europe right now".

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season".

There is no doubt Chelsea have struggled in pre-season and do not look the dominant force they were last campaign. "We're raring to go".

They have lost a number of squad members including Nemanja Matic to Manchester United, while last year's leading goalscorer Diego Costa has been frozen out of first team plans. At Real Madrid, certainly, he was in and out, so the main pressure for Morata is to say, 'Here I am, I'm the No. 1 striker and I can take this all on'. We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City. I'm honest in my job.

Time will tell, but I think he would have been better off with a loan move-like his old striking partner Tammy Abraham, who is now at Swansea. We have to deal with that and handle that.

"Behind the scenes he'll be saying the same message, but in a different way: 'This is going to be difficult and this is how we overcome that, by working hard and by doing the extra bits even more than we did a year ago'".
