Guardiola has Man City playing like Barcelona - Toure

While some fear the spending is unsustainable and will put clubs' long-term stability at risk, the 25th year of the English Premier League era should deliver a title race more fiercely contested than ever. Gundogan's City career began slow as the German was sidelined to start the season but provided an immediate impact once getting on the pitch. "I'd say seven teams to fight for the title and 20 teams to fight for the victory every weekend, every match".

West Ham United is a +1100 underdog versus Manchester United (-333) with a draw at +475.

Mourinho, though, is expecting a breakthrough season from one of last summer's signings, Paul Pogba, and says a return to the Champions League, and Neymar's world record €222 million move to PSG, will help.

"The league is special because it is such a tough division to win", said Carrick. Winning two of the three cup competitions (Community Shield excluded) and having the second best defensive record in the league.

"Conte is a fantastic coach too, because he won everything at Juventus and has already won the Premier League in his first year with Chelsea".

However, Mourinho still managed to lead the Red Devils to the EFL Cup and Europa League trophies to make it something of a successful season.

The sun and the moon appear to be the same size, but the sun is 400 times larger and 400 times further from Earth. The eclipse in 2024 will have 98% coverage in Louisville. "So, it's about an hour and a half across the country".

Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho has been very transparent all summer long about his shopping list.

The United manager had outlined four positions he wanted to strengthen in to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the start of the transfer window, but only Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have arrived at Old Trafford.

Antonio Valencia is a given at right-back, while Matteo Darmian is ahead of Daley Blind on the other side following the Dutchman's disappointing pre-season.

"It wasn't an easy decision, because I was dropping again to the Championship". In terms of the squad, this is my second transfer window.

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.

City travel to new-boys Brighton, back in the top tier after a 34-year absence, while United host West Ham. The arrival of 11 "important" players — as Guardiola refers to them — has handed the Spanish coach an embarrassment of riches up in attack and fresh energy throughout his squad, which now has an average age of 24. They will take on a Foxes side with a new full-time manager at the helm, Craig Shakespeare, who was offered the job based on his work after taking over for Claudio Ranieri last season.
