Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

Shakespeare hoping Leicester can finally tame Arsenal Crespo tips Man United to win Premier League
Pamela Guccione | 12 Agosto, 2017, 05:53

Taking advantage of astronomical broadcast contracts and lucrative sponsorship deals, England's superpowers have been splashing the cash at an unprecedented rate.

With just a few days remaining until the Premier League restarts, the top teams in English football are still looking to complete some transfer business.

Yet Manchester United stole a march on him to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and while Manchester City have spent over £200 million, Chelsea seemed to be dawdling.

Pep Guardiola claims there will be no immediate repeat of this summer's lavish spending at Manchester City.

But after a close-season in which both managers have invested heavily in new players, United are now Mourinho's team and City have been created by Guardiola.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has prioritised signing a first-choice left back this summer, with Tottenham's Danny Rose one of his targets.

Morata has four league titles and two Champions League medals at the age of 24, but the Spain global was not first choice for either Madrid or Juventus.

Brighton have been busy in the transfer market themselves since securing promotion from the Championship after two excellent seasons for Chris Hughton's team.

Per Doyle, they grabbed just a single win on the road, and with Keane and Gray now plying their trade elsewhere, the Clarets are likely to be weakened.


The 24-year-old signed for Chelsea from Real Madrid in July for a reported fee of £58 million and, in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca, admitted there was a degree of pressure attached to his fee.

Leicester have yet to beat the Gunners in the Premier League era with their last league win coming in 1983, while it is a decade further back since the last time the Foxes won away at Arsenal.

With an improved supporting cast around him at Old Trafford, there's no reason he can't continue netting goals in droves and give United that extra edge that kept them from competing for a title last season.

Brighton's home then was the Goldstone Ground, which was sold in 1997 as the club battled against possible bankruptcy, leaving them "homeless" until they moved into their current venue, the Amex Stadium, six years ago.

"We don't have full backs to go up and down, up and down", Pep said in April after a goalless draw with rivals Manchester United. "The trend has always to come from the team". Chelsea will start its title defense at home squaring off against Burnley on Saturday.

In defence, Azpilicueta was a standout along the back three past year, but his versatility means he will likely replace Moses out wide on Saturday.

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

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