The signings of defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica, midfielder Nemanja Matic from Chelsea and striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton have also lifted the mood.

Hughton, who ex-Chelsea, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough midfielder Townsend played alongside for the Republic of Ireland, has experience of managing in the division with Newcastle and Norwich.

"He wants more at the highest level so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season". However, these were all tough opponents and Spurs should overcome the lesser lights of the Premier League.

Chelsea have signed some big names this summer, with Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger strengthening the squad.

Which means, after your first two months is done, you can simply cancel your subscription if you don't want to pay the full price after that point. Meeting this target would not only make the respective club's fans, sponsors and players happy but also keep the manager's job safe for at least another season. The Etihad outfit are in the midst of a squad overhaul of sorts and have witnessed huge change in personnel and Busquets appears to be the latest one to be in Guardiola's radar.

Guardiola, accustomed to being a favourite following spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, said: "Last season it was too".

The signing this week of Sead Hakšabanovic offset the likes of Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.

Bournemouth conceded 67 goals last season, but the arrivals of Ake and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic from Stamford Bridge should improve their solidity as Howe looks to build on last season's impressive ninth-place finish.

"He's a guy who plays in the middle and can be a holding midfielder or play in front". If you go back to the early noughties, Ronaldo was going for £45m.

Liverpool, trying to fend off Barcelona's interest in £100 million-rated forward Philippe Coutinho, are at Watford. Perhaps Chelsea's Antonio Conte may be the next manager to join this unflattering list. New signings Danilo (RB), Ederson (GK), Benjamin Mendy (LB), and Kyle Walker (RB) all play in the back, while Bernardo Silva is a winger.

Liverpool and Tottenham push the boundaries on physical endurance as they press, press then press some more.

"I'm happy with the effort the club made and happy the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts". City is -110 on the goal line.

The 35-year-old confounded the doubters last season, plundering 28 goals before a serious knee injury brought his maiden campaign at Old Trafford to a shuddering halt.

Jose Mourinho returned to the five-star Lowry Hotel on Saturday ahead of Manchester United's curtain raiser against West Ham. With 25 and 29 goals in the last two seasons, Kane is set to become the first Englishman to win the award three times in a row since Alan Shearer performed the feat between 1994-1997 and just the third player ever since Thierry Henry equaled the record for Arsenal between 2003-06.
