SHOWCASE-Soccer-Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans' View

The Foxes seem to have rediscovered stability under Craig Shakespeare, and go into the new season brimming with optimism and with no pressure on them.

Guardiola said the current spike in football transfer spending, which culminated in Neymar's recent world record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros (£200 million, $260 million), had been building for some time.

Immediately after Brighton secured promotion to the top-flight for the first time in 34 years, their chairman Tony Bloom warned he would not break the bank in a bid to avoid relegation. It's completely the same, because it's the same manager.

French side Nantes are hoping to land Arsenal midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide on loan for this season.

Hernandez is now the highest-paid player in Hammers history and all eyes in the supporter base will be fixated upon him. Mourinho will bank on Lukaku to replace Ibrahimovic in United. He will help stabilizes the defense and help John Stones grow as a player.

All jokes aside, Egypt international Hegazy is a perfect fit for the Baggies.

Mourinho added: "We got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important".

Nicolas Otamendi gets the start on the left side center-back. It gives them the chance to wipe the slate clean and start all over again without the past weighing heavily on their future.

City has spent well and signing of defenders such as Kyle Walker makes this team look very complete. He will be getting forwarded quite a bit in this formation and it suits his skill set perfectly.

"That group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City", he said. Roma has tried to buy him but he remains a Leicester player, for a week or two at least.

"Last year we were 3-1 up on Dortmund but ended up drawing 3-3". As for Spurs, Jake, Michael and Dan think they'll draw, while Peter expects Newcastle to run out winners in their first game back in the Premier League.

Yet, a team featuring Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus up front and a sprinkle of attacking midfielders like Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, new signing Bernardo Silva, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling promises lots of goals this season. He will pick opposing defensives apart with his passing.

After last season's disappointing third place, City have spent more than £200m on players this summer and are ready to push beyond the £300m mark if they have to this summer. The Argentinian bagged 20 league goals in 31 appearances last season, winning Guardiola over with some stunning late form, while Dunk was named in the Championship team of the year. He is a pass master and should provide plenty of opportunities for the forwards.
