Manchester City overwhelmingly the pick to win 2017-18 title

12 August 2017

A year ago, the buzz around the Premier League was focussed on the arrival in Manchester of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho as managers of City and United.

Swansea's purchase of Roque Mesa for £11 million looks a bargain for a player whose slick passing stood out for Las Palmas last season. Beating Liverpool and Chelsea for the signing of £60m-rated Virgil van Dijk would cement his side's status not only as clear favourites for the Premier League title but also to a serious contender for the Champions League.

Guardiola has started rebuilding from the back by recruiting fullbacks Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker for around 50 million pounds apiece. They need to hit the ground running.

An abundance of talent across the pitch will only be helped with strengthening in defence.

City is much more equipped to launch a sustained title challenge, with Guardiola close to having his ideal squad.

Charlottesville: State of emergency over USA far-right rally
In the days leading up to Saturday's planned rally, there had been some back-and-forth about where it would be held. However, that's only deterred a small fraction of the thousands of people expected to attend "Unite the Right".

Brighton & Hove Albion: Ryan; Saltor, Dunk, Duffy, Suttner; Knockaert, Stephens, Sidwell, March; Groß; Murray. The beginning of the season has been great.

The 20-year-old striker attracted attention in scoring the winning goal for England against Venezuela in the final of the under-20 World Cup in June, and is set for more games at Everton this season now Romelu Lukaku has joined Manchester United. With numerous gameplay modes, real players, an optional tablet interface, and full support for physical gamepads, this title is one of the best football games now available on the Google Play Store.

How safe is the manager?

Last season's Premier League runner up is anticipated to be on the radar this season because the quality of the Spurs team is still at its best and the fact that It's going to be Wembley all the way! The Magpies were top of the table for most of the season and were always the top pick for promotion.

"Guardiola is building a young squad, for the present and the future".

Ajax prodigy Jairo Riedewald has been brought in to strengthen at centre-back and offers composure in the back-line that could see him become a vital figure for the south London club.

Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez will play no part in club's opening League game after the Chilean suffered an abdominal strain in training. He took a team on the verge of dropping down to the third tier to the play-offs previous year. The goalkeeper position might be considered an area to upgrade on, as Wayne Hennessey hasn't looked the most secure in between the posts. This is in stark contrast to the last few seasons where the player failed to leave West Brom despite his best efforts.
