Predict how the 2017/18 Premier League table will end up

Predict how the 2017/18 Premier League table will end up

In Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, City will have the most potent tandem of wing backs in the Premier League, whilst Danilo will be no poor cover for Walker should he go down on the right.

The 21-year-old winger is also a full Germany worldwide and was part of his country's squad at EURO 2016, although he missed the FIFA Confederations Cup through injury, and Sane says his rapid development makes him feel like he is in a film.

"Six players were out of contract". Can Manchester City's strategy of creating an entire team of full-backs (including the goalkeeper) possibly work?

"We didn't have full-backs and you have to buy full-backs", the Spaniard added.

Manager Chris Hughton has assured that his players will show no fear as they take on Manchester City today.

Guardiola said the current spike in football transfer spending, which culminated in Neymar's recent world record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros (£200 million, $260 million), had been building for some time.

"We are going to play both systems".

"But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable".

Craig Shakespeare not expecting Leicester City player exodus
Despite being substituted with an ankle injury during their final pre-season game with Borussia Monchengladbach , hot prospect Iheanacho is expected to be fit for their clash with the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow.

Vincent Kompany's fitness became a laughing stock for the last three years, but he's been able to stay healthy for the last four months.

Bosnia is just one of 105 nations outside the British Isles who have supplied players to the Premier League in its 25-year history. But as inevitably as dentists and taxes, we will find ourselves sucked in by marvellous goals, impossible saves, the ballet of teamwork, the thrust of individual brilliance, unimaginable underdogs, the revelation of new stars and the recurrence of old ones.

That should change this season with Morata poised to replace Costa as Chelsea's figurehead, but how he will cope with the pressure of being his side's primary source of goals remains to be seen.

Hughton broke Brighton's transfer record to sign PSV Eindhoven midfielder Davy Propper on Monday and is set to shatter that mark with a £13.5 million swoop for Club Brugge winger Jose Izquierdo before the season starts.

"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan. Brighton are an unknown quantity as this is their first outing in the Premier League, but they were a well-disciplined, organised side with quality in attacking areas on their way to promotion glory. I think soon [they will be back] but not for this game.

As one of the most successful football managers in the new millennium, Guardiola will have been disappointed that he didn't pick up a piece of silverware for the first time in his managerial career in his first season in England.

Guardiola added: "So being favourites this season means nothing". On the other hand, Brighton & Hove Albion will try to give it all for a win in club's first-ever Premier League game.
