Man Utd: Expect a title challenge from Mourinho's men

Guardiola says he's not moved by talk that Man City are favourites

Guardiola says he's not moved by talk that Man City are favourites

The English Premier League is back for its 26th edition, a milestone year for England's top league.

Lukaku certainly has some big boots to fill this Premier League campaign, with the Swede bagging just over one goal in every two matches in the league.

Spurning interest from his former club Chelsea, Lukaku opted to join Manchester United in a £75 million deal that was a record for a transfer between British clubs.

Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama features prominently for Tottenham, whilst another player of Kenyan descent, Belgium's Divock Origi is attached to Liverpool.

Manchester United will look to capitalise on Chelsea's poor start to the 2017-18 season - and new Betfair and Paddy Power customers can get 18/1 enhanced odds on Manchester United to beat West Ham on Sunday. Hammers have better players at every line. When you are playing Champions League quality teams, you know that they can hurt you.

Since the beginning of the calendar year, the stock is 30.96%. (NASDAQ:AMZN) on Wednesday, September 28 with "Buy" rating. LeJeune Puetz Investment Counsel LLC bought a new position in Amazon.com during the second quarter worth about $116,000.

"We have had a better pre-season than past year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

Hughton was proud of the way his players stepped up to the challenge, but acknowledged Albion need to strengthen further to give them a chance of survival.

Last season was by far the most hard of Wenger's 21-year reign, with Arsenal's on-pitch travails exposing him to furious protests from angry fans.

I did take Watford out of my picks because I think Andre Gray is a good signing for them and could make the difference.

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.

Danny Mills predicts where Arsenal will finish this season
Arsenal legend Ian Wright expects Sanchez to remain at the club for one more season before leaving on a free transfer next summer. You need a combination of talent and attitude and he looks to me as if he has both.

"Usually they would say it is time for them to leave, it was the right move for both parties".

Bernardo Silva says Pep Guardiola's football philosophy was a key factor in his decision to sign for Manchester City.

I think Gylfi Sigurdsson will go so Swansea have got a few weeks to replace their most important player, while Stoke could also disappoint, so there's plenty of teams in the mix for me, but I think Huddersfield could cause a few surprises and stay up. They also have a solid defence led by German Christopher Schindler, who played in every game last season and completed almost 300 clearances and close to a 100 interceptions. Man City's Sergio Aguero (+550) and Gabriel Jesus (+800) could end up cancelling out each other.

Victory in both the EFL Cup and Europa League were a sign that the Red Devils have taken a positive step back to becoming one of the top teams in European football.
