Soccer Saturday pundits provide their predictions for the new Premier League season

Why hasn't he just said I'm staying for one more season? "We go to sign and other clubs are always going to ask us for more".

Wenger was also pleased with new French signing Alexandre Lacazette, who scored after 94 seconds to equal the record for the fastest opening goal of a Premier League season.

Mourinho's squad has been boosted by the summer arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku.

"You will have so many scientists around the team that who will bring out the team to play on Saturday will be more management specialists than football specialists".

Guardiola endured a hard first season at City, going through a campaign without a trophy for the first time in his managerial career.

"I am old enough to remember the last (and only) time we were in the old First Division, from 1979 to 1983".
