Guardiola, Mourinho spend heavily to dethrone Chelsea

Manchester United may have won 20 league titles, 13 of which were in the Premier League era, but based off this league table they'd be joint rock-bottom. Nearly every top team have strengthened themselves with some wonderful signings and we are in for an absolute peach of a season.

"It amazes me, why would you sell Matic to Manchester United?". They told me this is a really big club with a nice history. It is at the club where he became record all-time goalscorer for Manchester United and England. Even Chelsea and Manchester United can not call on half of City's attacking options and if it clicks then no-one will be able to lay a finger on them. If he scores, how will he celebrate?

Another new recruit, left-back Benjamin Mendy, is missing with a thigh problem while midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is not yet fully fit after suffering a knee injury last season.

Where the Manchester clubs have spent upwards of 200 million pounds on their teams, Chelsea - who have a small squad as it is - have brought in just Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata, both talented players but unaccustomed to the rigours of the Premier League.

He has won the league title in each of his second seasons at Chelsea, Inter Milan - where he added a Champions League in his second year as well - and famously at Real Madrid in 2011-12 when he ended Barcelona's stranglehold over the La Liga trophy after four barren years for Los Blancos.

If you're looking for a different type of a football game focused on the Premier League and are willing to look over or outright laugh at unlicensed names like "W. Rooni", Making Soccer Star should be precisely to your liking.

While not every goal can be as important as Batshuayi's there were definitely more lovely ones, such as Emre Can's wondrous bicycle kick against Watford that won Match of the Day's goal of the season award. Succeeding this year is crucial in implementing a feeling of stability in the Premier League, so a comfortable league position will be the main target going into the new campaign. Second season, things fell apart and, when the centre could not hold any longer, he was sacked from his job.

Diame had to choose between Premier League football with Hull - and another season in the Championship with Newcastle United.

Mohamed Diame turned his back on the Premier League a year ago. Which Mourinho act will the Italian copy? In his earlier stinct in the premier league mangager (with Norwich), Hughton was often criticised for his negative style of play, but with Brighton he seems to have find a new level. There are nearly 60-odd games to play in the season so nobody has any advantage yet.

Foden is still expected to play for City's U23s at times this season, but can expect to gain a wealth of experience by being around the squad in training and on match days, as well as featuring in cup games and off the bench in occasional league matches.

Now, sit back and relax, grab the popcorn and watch as the new season gets underway this Saturday.
