Michael Carrick expects Premier League title challenge from Manchester United

12 August, 2017, 20:11 | Author: Joan Malone

As fees became ever more inflated, the what-ifs provided an intriguing backdrop to the unfolding drama.

Manchester City and Liverpool also play Saturday, against Watford and newly-promoted Brighton, respectively, while Manchester United and Tottenham both start on Sunday.

"My family and I were fortunate enough to travel across seven states, driving over 2,000 miles, following Manchester City on tour (in America) this summer and we had the most fantastic time".

While United will remain vigilant in the transfer market right up until deadline day, Mourinho is losing faith in their ability to do a deal and says he is ready to use his existing options instead. Instead, many look like hugely expensive punts.

The first week of the season is always one of the hardest to predict, but our writers have a lot of confidence in the top six. Mendy's reputation is based on one excellent year at Monaco.

The Spanish manager believes the signings were needed to freshen up an ageing squad ahead of the new season.

Brighton & Hove Albion even did it three times, first signing Australian keeper Mathew Ryan, then Dutch midfielder Davy Propper and finally Colombian Jose Izquierdo from Club Brugge.

The most expensive of those, Marko Arnautovic, arrives on a five-year contract from Stoke City for 19 million pounds after scoring an underwhelming 22 goals in 125 games.

"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?"

Arsenal - It will be another season of pain for Arsenal with possibly more protests over Arsene Wenger.

Having not finished below third in the Premier League during the Scot's reign, remarkably they have not finished higher than fourth since his retirement.

Arsenal's other newcomer, 24-year-old Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac, cost nothing after seeing out his contract at Schalke, where he was voted into the Bundeliga team of the season in 2016-17.

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season. The best managers in the world are in the Premier League now.

They will take on a Foxes side with a new full-time manager at the helm, Craig Shakespeare, who was offered the job based on his work after taking over for Claudio Ranieri last season.

Chelsea - The Blues were a powerhouse last season, especially when Antonio Conte changed to a back three - there was simply no looking back.
