Manchester United FC look to restore dominance at Old Trafford

Guardiola defends Manchester City's big spending

Mourinho said during pre-season that a new deal was a possibility and confirmed ahead of the Premier League opener against West Ham that talks are under way. At the bottom, Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town seem likely to make a quick return to the second division. 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. Now, it's climbed all the way to the Premier League.

Mourinho's first season at Old Trafford saw United finish sixth in the English top flight, though they won the Europa League and EFL Cup.

A player with an exquisite first touch and eye for a pass, many feel he is tailor-made to excel under Guardiola's guidance, and City's open, attacking brand of football was a major reason he decided to make the move to the Etihad.

Tottenham only lost one player from last year's second-place squad but has brought in no reinforcements.

Between Isco and Luka Modrić, Manchester United's midfield looked feeble compared to their Spanish opposition and even when United did manage to create a clear scoring chance, Pogba or Lukaku could find the net from less than ten yards out.

"Usually they would say it is time for them to leave, it was the right move for both parties".

And it is Chelsea fans who take the longest (7,602,098 minutes, 84,468 games) to pay off a typical mortgage as despite sharing the most valuable property tag with Arsenal fans, on average they earn more than £80 a week less than their north London rivals. City is -110 on the goal line. Liverpool follow on 2.4, while the next best three are all of the newly promoted teams. Will these trends continue? Chelsea is the defending EPL champ and is listed at +325 to repeat.

New York Community Bancorp, Inc
New England Research & Management Inc. boosted its stake in shares of New York Community Bancorp by 45.3% in the first quarter. The financial services provider reported $0.22 EPS for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $0.19 by $0.03.

Where fans are concerned, those in Burnley have it best.

The Premier League is undoubtedly more competitive than most other top-flight football leagues. 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.

- most goals scored by one Premier League team against another in a season. Goals will be flowing for Lukaku with Pogba creating for him.

He says: "The 2017/18 Premier League will be a fantastic season for Liverpool. We have to win the games that we can do".

Who will you be backing to lift the 2017/18 Premier League trophy?

Michy Batshuayi scored just five league goals all season for Chelsea, but the 23-year-old made sure one of those was (sort of) the most important of the season, by scoring the title-winning goal against West Brom.
