Our Definitive 'Premier League Best XI' From The Past 25 Years

Fellow new signings Bernado Silva, Kyle Walker and Danilo are also in line to feature, though new recruit Benjamin Mendy is missing with a thigh strain.

"It's the same pressure as I had last season", Guardiola explained. We were not able to find a solution with those players.

Manchester City are most people's favourites for the Premier League title, but their first season under Pep Guardiola was a curious affair.

And Mourinho told City's website on Monday that the 22-year-old should make an immediate impact in the English Premier League.

"If we do something good this season it's because we were together last season, and we know better, and I know better, and they know me better, and that's why it's easy".

United finished outside the top four for the third time in four seasons, but secured a Champions League berth by winning the Europa League and also tasted glory in the League Cup.

They have spent £126 million ($164 million) on striker Alvaro Morata, Tiemoué Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger, but some fans are getting restless at the lack of big spending. I also don't try to follow these things a lot, they are journalists, they talk what they want, they talk what they think. We played 3-4-3 with a diamond, it's such a demanding system, so attacking, but so demanding defensively, and we did it quite well, yet for me it doesn't matter as it's pre-season. I'm sure Chris will know the key for any newly-promoted team is how you do at home. I was confident last season, too.

Everton have splashed out on young English talents like Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane, as well as bringing Wayne Rooney back to the club after his record-breaking 13-year spell at Manchester United. As the original superstar Premier League goalkeeper, the Danish legend was instrumental in Manchester United's five league title wins (and the rest) in his time at Old Trafford. In purely playing terms, Cole is arguably the best left-back England has ever produced, and at his peak was undeniably world-class.

The Seagulls were impressive in the first three friendly games scoring 11 and conceding none, but then failed to beat Norwich City and Girona, and, unsurprisingly, lost to Atletico Madrid in their last test before Manchester City.

He said: "If you see the team last season and this season, the four [pre-season] games we played, the fundamentals are the same".

Arsenal's failure to make the Champions League was a blow but there could be a silver lining as Arsene Wenger will have the opportunity to rest his players in the early rounds of the Europa League. Harry Kane is the best finisher with the types of goals he scores so I'd go for him if I had to bet on the nose but I do fancy Lacazette each-way at 10/1.
