Premier League 2018-19: Arsenal vs Manchester City Preview

Conquering the Premier League seemed nearly too easy for this club last season, as they broke record after record.

The record they smashed for a goalkeeper (£67m on Brazilian Allisson) was overhauled by the £71.6m Chelsea lashed out on 23 year old Spaniard Kepa Arrizabalaga - the usual transfer madness in no way curtailed by the League´s unilateral decision to close the window before the start of the season.

Neville, who was speaking at Cadbury's Premier League launch in Dublin, outlined how he felt that the vigorous Champions League and Premier League schedule of playing "Saturday then Wednesday" does not suit the "100mph" way that Liverpool play.

The pair differ on their picks, with Shearer selecting Man City to win the title and Wright naming Liverpool.

"I think it'll be tough but if they were to go of the Champions league and they had free weeks after Christmas, Saturday to Saturday they could be a real threat this season to City".

The former Arsenal and England striker believes the Reds' summer transfer business can catapult them above Pep Guardiola's record-breaking champions. Premier League came out of his mouth before we'd even finished the question. We spoke to Kompany and Walker and they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved a year ago. I'm just not sure, they've got themselves in a situation now where they're desperate.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group [of World Cup players] because everybody is different physically and mentally to see how they feel, how they are and to understand if they think how they can help or not help". The challenge for them is can they repeat that level of energy and that level of focus every three days?

"I think a lot will depend on how his team plays, you know. He realises that's the measure of greatness".

Across the city at United, grumbly Jose Mourinho seems to have a huge battle on his hands to raise a smile, let alone a challenge.

But the Manchester Evening News say that, because of Anthony Martial, United refused to test the waters.

It looks like it could be a quiet day at United though and Mourinho will have to go into the Premier League opener against Leicester with what he's got. That's an obscene amount of talent.

Fulham signalled their determination to stay in the English Premier League by becoming the first promoted team to spend more than £100million (NZ$194m) in England's summer transfer window.

Nuno has again been able to invest this summer and reports from Sky Italia today have linked them with a £38 million move for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, an addition that would bring their spending to over £100 million.
