New faces on the Premier League merry-go-round

  • Paul Scholes has praised Man Utd for the signing of Nemanja Matic

Asked if it will be hard to win the title again without adding more players, the Italian tactician told Sky Sports: "Yes, for sure".

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

Chelsea needed an 89th minute Victor Moses goal to get over the 2.5 goal line in that 3-0 victory over the Clarets last term, and my hunch is that Burnley will be a much tougher nut to crack on their travels this time around. It is the best players from all over the world playing for some of the top clubs in the world. Instead, many look like hugely expensive punts.

A club record £58 million lured Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata from the European champions, while Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger also joined Chelsea, whose spending climbed over £130 million.

"This choice was a natural choice because Gary has played for the club for many years and has won a lot".

Costa is alleged to have opened legal proceedings against the Premier League champions for "blocking" his proposed move to Atletico.

Jamie Carragher delivers shock verdict on Antonio Conte future at Chelsea
"I'd be very surprised if I'm sitting here in 12 months" time and he's the Chelsea manager, ' Carragher told Sky Sports . Jamie Carragher believes that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will leave the club within the next 12 months.


Despite finishing second last season, Tottenham, who face promoted Newcastle on Sunday, have boldly abstained from the spending and are yet to make a single signing. "It's not easy. It's very important to try to find the right solution, to try to improve the squad, to improve the quality before (we) start the season".

Another pointer towards a low-scoring affair perhaps is the absence of Eden Hazard who will miss the game with an ankle injury. Lacazette acknowledges the Premier League will be a big step up.

However, the 24-year-old expects more of the same to come his way during the season due to his price tag.

Bosnia is just one of 105 nations outside the British Isles who have supplied players to the Premier League in its 25-year history.

"It's simple. I think I'm the coach of this team".

Mee was the lesser heralded, certainly outside town, of his centre back pairing with Michael Keane last season, but after Keane's departure, he will be the main man: "We were a duo but I felt the responsibility previous year as well, I was the more senior player of us two". And unless there's a remarkable kiss and make up between Conte and Diego Costa then last season's leading goalscorer won't be on the pitch either.
