There could be a female manager in EPL soon, feels Wenger

189 countries across the globe tuned into the season opening fixture of the 2017-18 Premier League, and they were treated to an absolute humdinger of the game, where the lead changed three times, Jamie Vardy bagged a brace and the nerves of home manager were stretched to breaking point.

So who will it be?

In the build-up to this match, manager Arsene Wenger challenged his record signing to score a goal a game and the young Frenchman wasted no time in proving to his compatriot that he's up to the task.

This leaves us with three defensive positions, only one of which will play on any given week.

Everybody knows that Guardiola's game big time depends on full backs so it's no wonder that City spent nearly £150m on Kyle Walker, Benjamind Mendy and Danilo, while other two signings are potent midfielder Bernardo Silva and Primeira Liga's best goalkeeper Ederson. Will that, and a full season from Gabriel Jesus, be enough to turn around a 15-point deficit. Still. Amazing really.The highest scoring player on the game last season thanks to 24 goals and 10 assists.It looks like he's staying at the Emirates, so get him in your team, first name down surely?

Davies is a great placeholder for Kieran Trippier as he's part of the same Spurs defence and carries the same price.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Guardiola claimed it was necessary to reinvigorate City's ageing squad but he will only seek to add one or two new faces in forthcoming seasons.

The Gunners started quickly on home turf when new signing Alexandre Lacazette struck with just wo minutes on the clock, making no mistake with a headed effort. Alexis Sanchez's future continues to be the subject of much speculation and Mesut Ozil is also still without a new contract.

"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion? We were able to buy Kyle and there are other English players I'd like to have but we are so happy with what we've done". Their star player Philippe Coutinho fancies a move to Barcelona, but the club are keen to keep hold of the Brazilian - how will that affect their early season form? Here are 5 areas which the league must improve on in the upcoming season.

The midfielder made a big money move back to Old Trafford last summer and helped the club to League Cup and Europa League glory, with the latter securing them a spot back in the Champions League. You have only got to look at the signings so far and the intent is there.

It may be recalled here that United have already bolstered their squad with the addition of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof.

So where does your vote go?
