Ranking the top five Premier League attacks: Which club is king?

Ranking the top five Premier League attacks: Which club is king?

Yet, with Manchester United and Chelsea far from ideal either and the current City squad possessing new realms of depth, they should saunter to the title. Moreover, there have been recently constant reports suggesting Bale's departure from the Spanish capital, amid links to the Premier League giants.

Crespo is also backing Wayne Rooney to be player of the season, thanks to the "romantic story" of the return to his boyhood club Everton.

In the past two seasons, Chelsea and Leicester City have both sacked their managers less than a year after winning the title.

For the two Manchester clubs, last season was a mixed bag.

Here we take a look at 25 facts and figures to sum up the 25 years of the rebranded competition.

"Matic was a big player for Chelsea last season and even though they have sign players to replace him, he is going to be missed and possibly just as significantly, he strengthens Manchester United, there is no doubt about that". Beating Liverpool and Chelsea for the signing of £60m-rated Virgil van Dijk would cement his side's status not only as clear favourites for the Premier League title but also to a serious contender for the Champions League.

However, the club did win the Europa League and the League Cup, giving the manager a platform of success on which to build. Let the season get underway and we'll find out soon enough.

The 35-year-old, who scored 28 goals for United last season, has been at the club during his rehabilitation and Mourinho said the Swede could feature in the second half of the season.

"It's not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did a year ago was not enough for him". "We needed to do that because four or five players were out of contract".

So far, United has brought in Victor Lindelof from Benfica, Romelu Lukaku from Everton, and Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, with more signings possible in the run up to the transfer window closing on August 31st.

The likes of Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini will provide options from the bench as Paul Pogba should be deployed in the advanced midfield role.

"I'm really happy that the dream came true".

Just three months after lifting the Premier League trophy, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has described the new season as the most "difficult" test of his career.

"My initial analysis from January and progressing through other months I was thinking of four players but I am not a hard person to work with, even if looks different or you want to make it look so".

Tomorrow: Manchester United v West Ham (5pm), Newcastle v Tottenham (2:30pm) - AFP.
