Mourinho Expects "No" Players To Sign For Manchester United Today

  • Chelsea's England under-21 international Lewis Baker has been sent to Leeds- his fifth loan move in three years

Despite missing a host of World Cup stars, City looked in ominous form as it dismissed Chelsea 2-0 to lift the Community Shield last weekend but faces a tough start as Arsenal begins the post-Arsene Wenger era at Emirates stadium on Sunday. Leicester, meanwhile, enter the season hoping that Algerian signing Rachid Ghezzal proves an adequate replacement for Riyad Mahrez, but they have retained a strong spine to their team, featuring Kasper Schmeichel, Harry Maguire, Nigerian midfield dynamo Wilfred Ndidi and striker Jamie Vardy.

The early summer transfer deadline in the Premier League sparked a drop in spending for the first time since 2010.

However, they finished 25 points back in the league as Pep Guardiola's men romped to the title with a record 100 points.

Sport looks at five things to look out for in the Premier League this season.

"If we play good and we are consistent we have a chance to repeat the Premier League".

"But looking at the squad Jurgen Klopp has assembled, I will be amazed if Liverpool don't push them very, very close".

Guardiola doesn't expect City to beat their points record this season, but with a first Champions League crown also in their sights, the Spaniard is determined to keep driving his players towards greater heights.




It is an address, he believes, that will reflect the scale of the journey his players have made, from last season's Championship relegation favourites to automatic promotion to the top flight.

Asked if wining the league title is a realistic goal for Liverpool, Mellor told LFC TV: "Yes, I think so".

Mauricio Pochettino wanted Jack Grealish, however, Aston Villa refused to sell.

"If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us". "What we are working on is the depth of the squad because you need it".

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players".

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said.
