Premier League preview: Manchester rivals chase Chelsea

I think we'll be battling with Chelsea, United, and Liverpool for those other spots, though Pool losing Coutinho would be a big blow for them. They can't all be displaced, and we think that if we were broadcasting all of ours we would be impacting upon that. I mean, it's Tottenham Hotspur.

His attack-at-all-costs philosophy will demand the pace of Walker and Mendy be harnessed by bombing into the opposition's half, which will leave City open to counter-attacks, as it did against many opponents last season. Not just if he helps them stay in the Premier League, but because those top-of-the-standings teams will come offering many more millions.

Watford host Liverpool, Stoke visit Everton, Southampton host Swansea and West Brom welcome Bournemouth in Saturday's other matches, while promoted Newcastle are home to Tottenham and Manchester United face West Ham to wrap up the weekend on Sunday.

"We've got our first game this Friday coming and we can't wait to get started". They are my favourites, but we can gather our points without looking at them, since we only play them twice. We've made a nice little album cover to celebrate 25 years of the Premier League, and what better way to launch it than by getting you to name everyone in it. Their social tournament platform allows you to go up against your mates and bet for longer in a fun and social environment.

While City shimmered in attack, they frequently looked vulnerable in defence and resculpting the back four has been Guardiola's main priority.

"I am not happy", said Benitez, a Champions League victor with Liverpool, "but at the same time for me it's a challenge".

"They should have been buying serious players to make sure they had the finished article in two or three positions and then they could have been real challengers for the Premier League and the Champions League".

Tiemoue Bakayoko, who joined from Monaco, is expected to be an upgrade on midfielder Nemanja Matic, who has followed Mourinho to Manchester United.

Huddersfield may have signed 11 players but still I still expect them to have a tough experience along with Brighton. The Portugal worldwide is also the kind of versatile, fleet-footed player Pep Guardiola has made his name creating teams around. I know a lot of the pundits are going for City but you feel like this is a Guardiola team now. The Spurs cannot afford to flame out of the cup competitions early, as they did last season.

And while the side from Stamford Bridge has undoubtedly strengthened with the twin signings of Antonio Rüdiger and Alvaro Morata, the Blues may just find their domestic competition too hot to handle as they fight for trophies on multiple fronts. "The trend has always to come from the team".

Chairman Daniel Levy's habit of leaving his recruitment to the last minute will ensure Tottenham fans remain hopeful of additions right up until the transfer window closes on August 31. Harry Kane is the best finisher with the types of goals he scores so I'd go for him if I had to bet on the nose but I do fancy Lacazette each-way at 10/1. It may not see Rashford emulate the scoring exploits of his breakthrough season under Mourinho's predecessor Louis van Gaal, but he is good enough to be a big player in a campaign of high expectation at Old Trafford.
