Premier League preview week: Are English teams getting a good return for their bigger buck?
City enters this season as the favourite to climb back to the top of the league.
Before Leicester City were crowned league champions in 2015/16, the idea of a small team challenging for the title, let alone winning, was not something even remotely possible in this day and age where bigger clubs with deep pockets tend to rule the roost.
"I scored a goal in that game against Venezuela and it was the first time that I celebrated with a gesture for my mother".
The Armenian has insisted that his form will only improve as time goes on, saying: "I am sure the best is still to come and I am looking forward to it because I know that we can do better and I can do better".
"I have a lot of respect for the players I had", he explained.
"I don't there's extra pressure on me".
Crespo made his prediction in a social media video for the Big Call series, produced with bookmaker BetStars in which sports stars including former footballers Wayne Bridge, Emile Heskey, Sol Campbell and seven-time World Snooker Champion Stephen Hendry offers their thoughts on major events.
"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals".
Crerand believes so and if United start well against West Ham United on Sunday and continue to prosper in a fixture list that doesn't throw up the best teams early on, confidence will soar.
"Of course [Guardiola being in charge] had an influence on me".
"My experience of being a manager, always the beginning of the season the new ones are the toughest ones", Guardiola added.
He continues: "While Guardiola is spoilt for choice when it comes to attacking options, he will want to try to find a way of using both goalscorers in the same XI".
"I just think that he was very clear by showing that what he did a year ago was not enough for him". Setting the bar too low could make fans, players and club owners question if they have the right manager for the job.
"There is no guarantee, but naturally a manager in his second season knows the club and the players better. That fact attracted me a lot", he said. But additionally there is an expectation that Lukaku will need his fellow attackers to support him, with only three other players hitting double-figure goals last season. The beginning of the season has been great.
"It will be fascinating to see which way Guardiola goes".
Arsenal also embark on a new campaign uncertain whether they will hold onto a key member of its squad. "But I'm settling in well here". Kyle Walker left for Manchester City, but the Spurs have decent replacements.
Mourinho: I won't cry over transfers
That tally was only bettered by Harry Kane , Alexis Sanchez and Lukaku. Spurs (nine) and United (12) came out best in that category. Away, that record drops to 39 scored and 17 conceded.
