English Premier League: 3 things to watch in Manchester City’s 2018/2019 season

Chelsea's England under-21 international Lewis Baker has been sent to Leeds- his fifth loan move in three years

Chelsea's England under-21 international Lewis Baker has been sent to Leeds- his fifth loan move in three years

The striker turned broadcast pundit believes Liverpool's mental edge over City following three victories against them last season - twice in the Champions League and once in the league - could be the difference if City do not runaway with the title in the manner they did last season.

Wolves' connections to Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes were a source of complaint for their competitors as they romped to the Championship title last season.

The former United man was keen to point out that Liverpool will be a challenge to reigning Champions City, but that having a "free week" due to lack of European football would be hugely beneficial to the Merseyside club's quest for a domestic title.

The Arsenal legend said: "I want this season's title race to be more spicy and I think it will be". But strong performances in Russian Federation weren't a necessity when it came to Premier League clubs deciding whether to spend the fruits of football's biggest television contracts. Premier League came out of his mouth before we'd even finished the question.

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite". We spoke to Kompany and Walker and they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved a year ago.

'My view is that first of all it's hard for me to believe we finished second, ' said Mourinho of last season. I'm just not sure, they've got themselves in a situation now where they're desperate.

"I think a lot will depend on how his team plays, you know".

This puts us all in grave danger. "If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out". In the new film, Moore appears to try and make sense of the seething national rage that propelled Donald Trump to power.

They reached that total before the year 2000 was over and continued their magnificent form all the way to the final day where they could still achieve Champions League qualification. "He realises that's the measure of greatness".

Jose Mourinho has taken aim at Liverpool and Tottenham on the eve of the new season, saying they "win nothing" but are painted as "serial winners" while his Manchester United get no credit.

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.

Manchester United have a front six of Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial and Sanchez.

Mourinho also suggested he had not been given enough credit for guiding United to a runners-up finish in the Premier League last season, as he again suggested the negativity around the club was misplaced. That's an obscene amount of talent.

A runner-up finish in the Premier League was secured, as was a place in the FA Cup final, but more is expected of a global heavyweight despite a tough pre-season. The Catalans giants are desperate to refill their midfield region after the departure of Spanish legend Andres Iniesta and to bolster their forward line as they do every summer.
