Big-spending Guardiola leads chase of Chelsea

United in talks with Ibrahimovic about striker staying

Premier League 25 stats for 25 years

"The only thing I have to do is work every day like I always do, the only demand on me is the one I put on myself", Mourinho said.

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. Two teams in blue and white stripes make their Premier League bows on Saturday.

For a moment, it looked like a Premier League offseason for the romantics. And while he made no secret of his desire to see one more player come in, the 54-year-old is adamant it will not make or break United's season. The Catalan coach was expected to bowl into his job at Manchester City previous year and walk away with the Premier League title after the success he achieved with both Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

And what of Manchester City?

Mourinho won the title in his second season in both spells at Chelsea, as well as during his time at Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

For a serial collector of trophies at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, finishing his first season in English football without a single title was an unusual feeling for Guardiola.

After a fourth-place finish last season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp splashed out a club-record £43.9 million on Roma winger Mohamed Salah, boosting a squad already brimming with potential.

The Red Devils haven't been quite as busy as some of their Premier League rivals in terms of recruitment this summer, but have still managed to secure the signings of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic - spending over £100m in the process.

Guardiola has already spent over PS200 million in total this summer to improve the porous City defense, which was the achilles' heel of the squad previous year.

While Newcastle are back in their rightful place after a season away, this is fresh territory for Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Top four: Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal. But the row with Diego Costa has turned ugly, and Matic, an anchor to two title-winning campaigns, is gone from the midfield.

"But there's only one team that can win it and [Manchester] City brought [Pep] Guardiola to the club to win the Premier League and to win the Champions League, and he has to win something this year". Three bids from Roma have failed to land the Algerian, and he has a chance to impress Wenger, who has a transfer budget to spare.

"There are a lot of variables that aren't easy but from the outside, it does seem unusual to let that player go to a direct rival - and he will improve them".

"There's pressure, but coming for £40 million from Monaco after a great season, the pressure was going to be there regardless", Lampard added.

Tottenham has been faded in the preseason prognostications, mostly on the assumption they will be thrown off due to using Wembley Stadium as a temporary home due to stadium construction. So hard to choose between Spurs (Wembley woe?) and Arsenal (unhappy/without Alexis Sanchez, pictured below). There are other questions as well, with the next three weeks a pivotal time.
