The Premier countdown timer is less than 24 hours, finally, the wait is over.
"We need to improve because we ended up a distance away from the top".
"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble". The 2017/2018 English #Premier League kicks off today, Friday 11th August, 2017 with the first game - Arsenal vs Leicester City by 7 pm. There have been a lot of changes to all teams in the league over the summer and it will be thrilling to see what everything will look like.
Mourinho has won the domestic league title at the end of his second year in each of his five major management jobs. They will be looking to defend their title on Saturday at home against Burnley, and they will be looking to impress both fans, and the rest of the league with a win.
Premier League table 2017/18
The danger for Chelsea is that the harmonious atmosphere re-established by Conte after Mourinho's bitter departure is eroded. Brighton and Huddersfield were promoted alongside a Newcastle side making an instant return to the Premier League.
Conte has spent more than £100-million on Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger to avoid becoming the third axed champion. Odds are in favor of the Blues at 1.25 to Burnley's 15.00. The two sides have made some strong signings this summer and will be raring to go in the opening weekend's final fixture.
Yet, there is set to be a knock-on effect, particularly at Liverpool who appear to have a fight on their hands to retain attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho as Barcelona look to reinvest some of their Neymar windfall in another Brazilian. The Portuguese star was crucial to Monaco upstaging Paris Saint-Germain as the Ligue 1 champions and he showcased his talent in a 30-minute cameo off the bench against West Ham in a friendly. There are two different people with Mourinho. The defence should once again be elite this year, and the acquisition of Belgian sniper Romelu Lukaku is likely to boost production on offence.
Ex-Manchester City star makes bold prediction about Manchester United
They have been far too reliant on Troy Deeney for goals. "The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed". That's why it's great to be here'. "We spoke and I saw last season how tough is this league".
Pereira impressed for United in pre-season, managing to get on the pitch in all seven of the Reds' tour matches, and he's determined to make an impact in 2017/18.
With new signings expected to feature for both sides - every player who makes an appearance will be hoping to make an impact.
"We'll win the league this year", Manchester United legend Paddy Crerand opined an hour after seeing the Europa League winners outclassed by Real Madrid in Tuesday's Super Cup in Skopje. Taking advantage of astronomical broadcast contracts and lucrative sponsorship deals, England's superpowers have been splashing the cash at an unprecedented rate.

After Spieth missed his third birdie putt in the 12- to 16-foot range, Phelps muttered, "Where were those misses when we played?" He followed with two 3-woods that led to easy birdies, and Stricker shot a 1-under 70 that will allow him to make the cut.
