Guardiola: I'm Not Under Pressure, City Won't Spend Big Again

Arsenal's French striker Alexandre Lacazette celebrates scoring the team's first goal during the pre-season friendly football match

"The big fail now takes one week in football".

March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season. And it might yield some more television one-offs like this - former England striker and sports presenter Gary Lineker presenting soccer highlights show Match of the Day in just a skimpy pair of shorts.

Last season was Pep Guardiola's first ever campaign where he didn't win any trophy and is desperate not to have a repeat of that this year.

Guardiola has added five first-team players courtesy of an estimated £200million spending spree in the close-season, overhauling City's defence in particular. I think we're in for plenty of goals and a decent City win.

On the other hand, Mourinho will be entering the period that has never failed him - the second season.

Romelu Lukaku is a very good signing and Nemanja Matic is a brilliant pick-up from Chelsea.

He may be up to the task, but United are generally third favourites, as high as 9-2 in some places. "(The current players) are young and will stay for the future".

After a summer of exceptionally high spending from domestic teams and overseas, this season should prove to be a spectacular display of all-star football.

North Korea standoff wipes $1trn off global stocks
Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" Gold has rallied 2.3% this week on the heels of renewed tension with North Korea. The last time the S&P closed down more than 1 per cent was May 17 when it fell 1.8 per cent.

Arsenal - It will be another season of pain for Arsenal with possibly more protests over Arsene Wenger.

Ederson is looking forward to his Premier League debut but believes Saturday's curtain-raiser against Brighton could be a tricky first fixture for the Blues.

An ongoing transfer debate involving Phillippe Coutinho looks likely to end with the playmaker moving to Barcelona, albeit for a huge fee, and the Merseyside club will need to reinvest wisely to compete domestically and on the continent.

At 12-1 bookmakers clearly feel Liverpool fans will have to wait a while longer for that elusive Premier League title.

Liverpool held on to fourth place a year ago and will need to make the most of Champions League football while they have it.

There most noted signing is the return of Wayne Rooney to his spiritual home, as well as £88 million spent on players like Jordan Pickford, Davy Klassen and Michael Keane.

Following his arrival at the Etihad past year, the Spaniard spent £171.5m on new players but could only guide the club to third in the Premier League, 15 points behind champions Chelsea.

A tough season ahead for Spurs and if they once again come away with no silverware it's possible that the head of manager Mauricio Pochettino may be turned elsewhere.
