Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

Now Perry can look out across the magnificent Amex Stadium at the foot of the South Downs and enjoy the club's opening fixture this evening at home to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

"So yes we'll look at as many good experiences as we can do, and that's for the whole of the season, not just the start".

"But there's only one team that can win it and [Manchester] City brought [Pep] Guardiola to the club to win the Premier League and to win the Champions League, and he has to win something this year". "There are very few squads in Europe that can compete with their options going forward".

Frustrated by Newcastle's failure to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham and Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, who instead joined Chelsea, Benitez tried to shame Ashley into action. There's a gulf between Albion and City. They will actually be interesting round about the equinox, and by the time the clocks go back we will be as involved as ever. We bought three and the market is so demanding for all the teams, not just City. "Maybe he'll get minutes in Girona. I would like in three or four passes to score a goal, but sometimes it's not possible and you have to move them [the opposition] a little bit more, and because our strikers are not Peter Crouch, our strikers are completely different, they are not strong in the air".

I hate giving my predictions before the transfer window shuts.

It is a theory that could be put to the test with Clyne set to miss the start of the season through injury. Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal.

"Hopefully, next season I'll be here, and now we're not going to spend how we have spent this season I assure you that".

The financial boom that the Premier League facilitated (not least thanks to lucrative sponsorship deals and broadcasting contracts) have allowed English clubs to both sign and create some of the best talents in the world over the past quarter of a century. The club has everything in its favour to grow further if it can build on what has already been achieved. We were not able with those players to find a solution.

The ABBA system is said to favour the team that goes second, as it removes the psychological disadvantage of always having to play catch-up, and it will also be used in the Checkatrade Trophy and in the EFL play-offs. We can play good and we can win games.

'It's going to finish.

Many pundits are tipping Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City to have strong seasons, but it's really hard to predict who will take the title.

"Yes, of course we'll try [to defend better]", he said.

Brighton will assess winger Anthony Knockaert, who is close to a return after injuring ankle ligaments in July.

It's that time of year again.
