Jose Mourinho Won't Cry Over Having to Settle for Three New Players

Those reasons for excitement include the arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku for 75 million pounds ($97.42 million) from Everton, Chelsea's Serbia midfielder Nemanja Matic (40 million) and Sweden defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica (30 million).

Hughton, who ex-Chelsea, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough midfielder Townsend played alongside for the Republic of Ireland, has experience of managing in the division with Newcastle and Norwich.

Having selected him as an unused substitute in the Champions League against Celtic last season, Guardiola is seemingly ready to integrate Foden on a full-time basis from Saturday's opening weekend trip to Brighton and Hove Albion onwards.

Next season the Portuguese manager is likely to stick with a 4-3-3 formation to accommodate his new attacking stars and maintain a stable midfield.

"It's the league I want to play in".

Tottenham - It looks like a mistake that it hasn't strengthened its squad, though perhaps it still will before the season kicks off. Spurs had a terrific campaign last season and had it been any other season they would have won it.

"We've seen Juventus keep their thirst for success under the Italian, and this lack of complacency could ensure they do not derail in the manner they did under Mourinho", adds the Daily Mirror.

West Ham United have made some experienced additions to their squad in the transfer window which has their fans buoyant again, following a largely disappointing season given the expectations at the club.

"I feel the same as when I went to Manchester United, when I went to Real Madrid and Leverkusen, and now West Ham", he said.

In terms of the Neymar transfer, do you think that will take a huge toll on all the transfers now?

"If they stay there this year, the confidence they will get from that".

Yeah, I think it will be, but for the Manchester clubs.

Liverpool, trying to fend off Barcelona's interest in £100 million-rated forward Philippe Coutinho, are at Watford.

United finished sixth last season but did qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League.

As the country's top football competition, the Premier League is essentially duty-bound to provide the England national football team with as large a talent pool to choose from as possible. With 25 and 29 goals in the last two seasons, Kane is set to become the first Englishman to win the award three times in a row since Alan Shearer performed the feat between 1994-1997 and just the third player ever since Thierry Henry equaled the record for Arsenal between 2003-06.

Sofiane Feghouli, Cheikhou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho, Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio are all out of the trip to Manchester United.

Chelsea legend and new BT Sport pundit Frank Lampard has bet against Arsenal and Liverpool to reach the Champions League places this season, according to the Daily Star. The Red Devils rallied for two deep runs, winning the EFL Cup 3-2 over Southampton, and dominating Ajax in May 2-0 to hoist the UEFA Europa League title.

That's the opinion of Phil Neville who cannot fathom why the Blues have let the Serbian move to Old Trafford.

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea".
