'I'm on fire' - Man United boss Mourinho ready for Champions League challenge

Guardiola defends Manchester City's big spending

Champions: I can't see further than a three-way battle between Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama features prominently for Tottenham, whilst another player of Kenyan descent, Belgium's Divock Origi is attached to Liverpool. Pep Guardiola has bought well, bought a lot of pace into the team at the back, including Kyle Walker.

Ahead of the Premier League opener against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday, he said: "My initial analysis from January and progressing through other months I was thinking of four players but I am not a hard person to work with, even if looks different or you want to make it look so".

Where fans are concerned, those in Burnley have it best. Yes, I thought that.

"Winning a trophy is winning a trophy and the feeling you get from it is incredible".

"So I'm convinced I have - not just the hope - but the conviction that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

'When I got a call that Matic wants to play for me, I thought he was the ideal player for me.

He may need time, but make no mistake: writing off such a special talent now would be foolish. Man Utd will look forward to kicking off the new season with a win.

I'm not sure Alvaro Morata will play on Saturday and if Chelsea win that then he might not start for the first few matches.

Curiously, Brighton's last home game in the top division of English football was against City in 1983.

"In my other clubs, what I had was more people scoring goals - midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air, scoring goals at set-pieces".

I hate giving my predictions before the transfer window shuts.

Hammer's playing eleven has enough strength to compete with Manchester United and subdue them.

Antonio Conte explains whether Alvaro Morata will start for Chelsea against Burnley
They have be stronger and the squad needs freshening up, which has started to happen and I think will continue to happen. Speaking in an exclusive interview with ESPN FC, the BT Sport pundit said: "The mentality has got to improve".

"I have no doubt that he has not sanctioned that move, he is not happy with it and ultimately he is uncomfortable with it", Neville added.

"It was a special day for all of us and it was a proud moment to make my Premier League debut".

"It has been the same since I was four or five and a young boy growing up in Lisbon". However, that does mean Kane will start every game again?

"He's one of those players who gives me what I like in a player, which is consistency".

I just think Manchester City have strengthened in all the right areas where they needed to.

A dismal title defence and the shock sacking of Claudio Ranieri raised questions about the players' character, but a run to the Champions League quarter-finals under Craig Shakespeare augured well.

"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble".

Strong and two-footed, he already owns two Premier League winner's medals.

Defence, they say, wins you titles - and it is true.
