- players to have scored 30 or more Premier League goals in a season - Shearer, Andy Cole, Kevin Phillips, Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez.

As fees became ever more inflated, the what-ifs provided an intriguing backdrop to the unfolding drama.

Manchester United's transfer business is "75 percent" complete but the club is still looking for a winger, manager Jose Mourinho said ahead of their Premier League opener against West Ham on Sunday.

He thought he had stolen the points in a debut cameo against Tottenham before briefly sending the Etihad Stadium wild in the 0-0 derby with Manchester United until the assistant's flag was spotted. While Conte says the 22-year-old's progress will need to be hastened in the wake of Matic's exit, he also claims that more signings are possible.

Goalkeeper, Ederson, joins from Benfica for £34.7m, while City also bring in two of the world's most expensive defenders. This year he had taken them one step further.

Manager Pep Guardiola, fresh from conquering the world at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, took over at Manchester City previous year.

His display in the first leg was one the the best any opposition player has delivered at the Etihad in recent seasons, with his ability to retain possession and create chances for his teammates carving City open on a number of occasions.

A three-man panel, which will consist of an ex-manager, an ex-player, and an ex-match official, will make the decision. Lampard featuredfor Manchester City before finishing his career at New York City FC, where he was involved in 19 goals in 31 games.

Also, there is Alexis Sanchez who finished 3 last season but was really incredible in general for the club. If we can keep our key players fit, then Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League title.

I think Manchester City will score six or seven goals in five games this season.

Diving has long plagued the lovely game and the Premier League has finally done the right thing by bringing in retrospective bans for diving.

Arsenal's other newcomer, 24-year-old Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac, cost nothing after seeing out his contract at Schalke, where he was voted into the Bundeliga team of the season in 2016-17.

To call Newcastle a new team in the premier league is like calling Sun just another star.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term in Mourinho's first season in charge of the 20-time English champions. United still do not look like champions despite spending a fortune, while Spurs can conquer their Wembley phobia and impress again if youngsters like Harry Winks (below) continue to develop. Meanwhile, Stoke City's Jean-Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting arrives from Schalke with, if nothing else, the longest name in the league. It stands true in club football as well; especially in the marathon that is the league.
