Study Finds Liverpool Unluckiest Team In The PL, Man United Luckiest

Man City to swap Nike for Puma as part of CFG group deal

"We need to drive each other on".

Manchester United will kick off their Premier League campaign on Friday night and Jose Mourinho will be eager to start the season on a winning note as they host Leicester City at Old Trafford, but do the Red Devils traditionally fly out of the traps in the first round of matches, or are they slow-starters?

No great surprise that he gives a predictable top three, Man City to retain their title, followed by big spending Liverpool, then Tottenham.

City begin the new season with a trip to Arsenal on Sunday and Spaniard Guardiola suggested the London side could pose a serious challenge this season under new manager Unai Emery.

"It doesn't take away from City's excellence, but we want the season to go to the last", Scudamore told the BBC.

While many of his teammates have been publicly questioned by their manager, Mourinho has so far been fiercely loyal to one of his marquee signings.

The action-packed autumn Premier League period is complemented by BT Sport's exclusive live coverage of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. A decent start carried them a long way last season and when you get 37 points you need to improve.

Gates returns for high-drama testimony against Manafort
Gates admitted that at Manafort's behest, they later created a loan agreement for Lyovochkin's payment, though no loan existed. But while Laporta acknowledged that she regularly communicated with Gates, she said she believed Manafort was in the know.

Writing on Twitter, Collymore said as he predicted the top four: "City".

The Liverpool captain only returned to training on Sunday, but Klopp did not rule him out of contention to feature against West Ham on the weekend.

City have been quiet in the transfer market, adding just Riyad Mahrez from Leicester, but their attacking potency and ability to dominate possession should be even stronger with the addition of the Algerian.

Chelsea have become well-known for flying out of the traps, but last season the Blues suffered a shock opening day defeat at the hands of Burnley.

Chelsea also have a new boss but are already playing catch-up with Maurizio Sarri only appointed a month before the start of the campaign.

Yet, based on the World Cup performances of Golden Boot victor Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen among others, there is still plenty for Mauricio Pochettino to look forward to.
