The English Premier League opening week

Man City Sure 08082017

I'm surprised Spurs haven't signed anybody and that concerning thing is that it's gone from Mauricio Pochettino saying he doesn't need anybody to saying he needs four or five. However, that does mean Kane will start every game again?

I have some concerns about Crystal Palace, though, and I think the club's owners will be crossing their fingers after appointing Frank de Boer.

Townsend's old employers Chelsea are the defending champions and he thinks it likely the forthcoming title race will be a showdown between them, Manchester City and Manchester United. So Jose Mourihno has strengthened in the areas he's needed to and they look stronger and will challenge for the title. 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.

"I am insane about football".

"If they want to get something here, then they have to show their quality".

"There won't be too many betting shops throughout the country that would put us outside the bottom three". The whole town is desperately looking forward to Premier League football - they have had to wait a long time to be back in the top flight.

"It's the same pressure as I had last season", Guardiola explained.

However, given the way Kane has done it for the last two seasons you'd had to say he's decent value at 3/1, but you'd have to ask whether playing at Wembley is going to effect him.

World-record signing Paul Pogba will be expected to finally deliver on his undoubted potential in a more attacking role, and while 19-year-old Marcus Rashford continues to excite as he develops.

Matic signing gives United title edge over Chelsea
Matic was brought in to stabilise the midfield, and though United were overran, Mourinho was pleased with the 29-year-old's performance.

North Korea tensions continue to weigh on global stocks
It all led to a loss of mojo for the Australian dollar, which slipped below 79 cents against the U.S. dollar in afternoon trade. The market's main backstop in times of strain, gold, hit a two-month high of $1,282 an ounce amid the nervousness.

The bot quickly bested Dendi in two matches, leading Dendi to say it's "too strong!" "I need more time [to practice] I guess". Artificial Intelligence is now one topic, about which people are really divided and quite skeptical.

Brighton secured a return to the top flight of English football last season after 25 years of absence, and they're starting it with one of the most hard fixtures of the season.

Guardiola has spent more than £200m already this summer and smashed the world-record fee for a defender when he signed Kyle Walker from Tottenham in a £50m deal last month.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

"We are going to play both systems". Watford will be in the fight as well if Troy Deeney isn't performing and Burnley will be be in the mix as Sean Dyche doesn't seem aware that there's a transfer window.

You would always expect to achieve better results at home than away, but Tottenham's form drop-off on their travels last season was marked.

"When you go to Germany, Spain, Italy to buy - it happens with United, Chelsea, all the big teams - it's £10-£15m more expensive".

I do think Alexandre Lacazette will be clinical but I can't guarantee he'll score in the big games, so I'd back him each-way.
