Pep Guardiola: Premier League players £20-£25m more expensive

But then we won at Nottingham Forest (who were then European champions), gained some confidence, put some runs together, and finished well clear of the relegation zone.

"All the clubs spend a lot of money - not just us".

NEW REFEREES The Premier League has added Chris Kavanagh to its list of Select Group 1 referees who will take charge of top-flight matches this season. I don't know, we're going to ask the doctor because, of course, he was injured for a long time. Lukaku will be counted on to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goals but he managed 25 for Everton last season and is now reunited with his former boss at Chelsea.

With Diego Costa widely reported to be leaving the club, the main striker is Alvaro Morata, brought from Real Madrid, and while he is an undoubted talent, he is untested in English football.

"City are probably not going to know as much about us as we do about them".

It was the inevitable reaction to feeble title challenges that saw Guardiola's City finish 15 points behind the victorious Chelsea side in third place and Mourinho's United drift over the line nine points further adrift. Liverpool have brought in speedy Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah from AS Roma and Scotland full back Andy Robertson from Hull but have not made the kind of acquisitions that would transform their chances of a first title in the Premier League era. 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?

His technical limitations should be less exposed in the rampaging Premier League, and there are few better coaches in the world to address his positional troubles than Pep. But we can not forget that when we do something better than last season it's because we've been one year together.

There's no outstanding favourite and this is the most exciting season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is convinced that Chelsea will sign a number of other players in the summer transfer window. And Klopp believes Guardiola's men will perform much better this time.

The ABBA system is said to favour the team that goes second, as it removes the psychological disadvantage of always having to play catch-up, and it will also be used in the Checkatrade Trophy and in the EFL play-offs. "Players here now are so young and will stay for the future". I am backing him to deliver this time around, though.

I don't see Jesus being as prolific and might have to play out wide with Aguero central, so they will share the City goals.
