Manchester City clear favourites for Premier League title

Manchester City clear favourites for Premier League title

Bank-busting transfers have been made; loads of fun managers to watch out for, all hands are on desks in anticipation for the sound of the first whistle of the season; new kits designed and launched by every club. When he is there to direct Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones, as he was at the end of last season, they are the best team in the country.

Mourinho's magical second season: Since 2002 when he intruded on our consciousness, Jose Mourinho has coached four major clubs before his current job at Manchester United and, in each of these four clubs - FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid - he's NEVER failed to win the league title in his second full season.

Huddersfield Town are set for their first ever season in the Premier League.

Harry Kane reached 29 league goals thanks to scoring four and three in his final two games of the season, beating Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal and Romelu Lukaku (then of Everton) to the golden boot to win the award for the second time in a row.

Unlike last season, City should be expected to line-up with as many formations as you may think especially now that Pep finally has very good squad depth going forward.

But after a close-season in which both managers have invested heavily in new players, United are now Mourinho's team and City have been created by Guardiola.

However, after all the high expectations, for the first time in his career Guardiola ended a whole season trophy-less, though they did managed to finish the season third. "Kyle is so energetic, Mendy is such an energetic player, and Danilo too".

"Bernardo Silva will have to be content with a place on the bench, and is a great option, along with Raheem Sterling, if City can't find a way through". The most predictable, however, is the 3-5-2 and the 4-2-3-1/4-3-3.

City open their Premier League campaign today with a trip to newly-promoted Brighton. He took a team on the verge of dropping down to the third tier to the play-offs a year ago.

Last season can only be described as a resurgence period, a season of transition.

Chris Slater is one of three journalists to have their say and he remarks: "Three at the back has worked remarkably well for Pep Guardiola during pre-season".

The 26-year-old is targeting a Premier League return at the beginning of next month and the friendly game in Girona next Tuesday is seen as an ideal game to ease him back in. We try to attack more fluently, and more times maybe this season, but it's a process to do that and sometimes you need a little bit more time.

"I feel good", he said. Strong and two-footed, he already owns two Premier League winner's medals. This as a result of their goalkeeping reinforcement and their more electric sidelines as it appears.

Speaking of Gabriel Jesus, the 20-year old Brazilian has been speaking to the Daily Mail about numerous topics, including how the competition between himself and Aguero can only help the team.
