11 things you might have forgotten from last season's Premier League

11 things you might have forgotten from last season's Premier League

"There are obviously bigger competitions than others, but we will certainly be fighting on all fronts to win as much as we can".

"I'm happy with the effort the club made and happy the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts".

Michael Carrick believes "things are on the up" at Manchester United, with the captain confident Jose Mourinho's men are in a better place to challenge for the Premier League than a year ago.

"My friends had helped me to come up with it as a tribute to her", he explained. Therefore, bookmakers can withdraw these offers due to overwhelming demand.

The league's defending champions Chelsea, alongside Manchester United, Liverpool Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur command the most followers in Kenya. Only two English sides have made the semi-final since Chelsea lifted the trophy in 2012.

While not every goal can be as important as Batshuayi's there were definitely more beautiful ones, such as Emre Can's wondrous bicycle kick against Watford that won Match of the Day's goal of the season award.

Romelu Lukaku recently moved to Manchester United from Everton in a deal which could rise to £90m.

No wonder Guardiola was so relieved at the start of his second season in charge. Arsenal has just one win in its last seven season openers, but it should be different this time since they had a confidence-builder in the Community Shield game against Chelsea last weekend.

Guardiola's reputation as a champion of both youth and midfield stylists from his time at Barcelona means player and manager could be coming together at an ideal time.

I am interested to see whether Chelsea put all their eggs into the Premier League basket or in the Champions League, but I suspect they will go for the latter as Antonio Conte has more of a point to prove in Europe.

Eric Bailly and Phil Jones were both suspended for the Super Cup clash against Real Madrid but are both in line for a starting place.

In the middle, Matic will sit the deepest and be the most defensive of the trio. After only one season in the second division, though, Newcastle is back.

Alexander-Arnold showed he wouldn't be overawed by his step up when he flattened Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery during a recent pre-season friendly.

Tottenham's Harry Kane (+275), the two-time reigning Golden Boot winner, is the chalk pick in top scorer futures.

He's just turned 29 and he has five years' Premier League experience.

The obvious one is of course Rafa Benitez, with Martin Keown pointing out that the Spaniard 'has managed some of Europe's top clubs and will be crucial to any success this season'.
