Premier League CEO reveals his dislike for Man City's dominance

Watford started so well but struggled after that last season, they came good again and finished in mid-table but there was too much of a spell where they couldn't win a game.

Premier League fixtures: Can Man City retain their title?

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? Clubs have been caught out by the lack of time available, and with the amount of money in football, there are fewer bargains to be had for the Premier League clubs.

If I felt we could not improve the team I would call my chairman and say: "I leave". Secondly, they will expect more from him this season after an impressive showing at the World Cup.

"When you improve individually you improve the team".

Other players to keep an eye on are Leicester's Harry Maguire, who is reported to be still keen on joining Manchester United, and Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele who is linked with Arsenal.

Writing on Twitter, Collymore said as he predicted the top four: "City". "They proved to us that they were probably our bogey team last season where they beat us a number of times".

By contrast, Liverpool are well-placed to hit the ground running ahead of Sunday's kick-off at home to West Ham as Virgil van Dijk, Keita and Fabinho missed out on the World Cup, while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane bowed out at the group stage with Egypt and Senegal.

Unai Emery has enjoyed the luxury of having most of his squad available for pre-season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette forming a fearsome front four. Regardless, as Real Madrid are prepared to send Mateo Kovacic on loan to Chelsea, in order to secure a £35m transfer for Courtois, the move seems set to go through, though there remains some haggling over the transfer fee.

After predicting how the top six will end up this season, we challenged the Soccer Saturday pundits to name the three sides who will face relegation.

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.
