Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

Manchester CIty should score 3 goals themselves so I think this is quite a safe bet also. He is highly-rated, and rightly so given what he has done at Huddersfield. Is Okazaki going to keep his place? "Even when I played Giroud through the middle and him on the left he did very well on the left".

Sohbi has just signed a new long-term deal at Stoke and I believe he is a wonderful talent. 'The biggest worry is Manchester City and that's the problem.

Wenger said: "I personally am convinced that will happen soon", with reference to Corinne Diacre, who manages second-tier French team Clermont Foot. They will hope to use their home fans to get a result but it seems unlikely since Manchester City look a lot better than Brighton all over the ground. Jurgen Klopp has added Mo Salah to his attacking options and England U21 striker Dominic Solanke could prove a bargain signing, but what of their goalkeeper and defence? "I think it is the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", Mourinho said.

"I love the man and the player", Wenger told Sky Sports.

The link drawn between Wenger regarding the possibility of a female manager in the Premier League and managers who are not "football specialists" is an interesting one, but perhaps let's not dwell on what we're sure was a perfectly innocent segue. That's not Sanchez though, he's world class'. After making some impressive additions in the transfer market, with Joe Hart and Javier Hernandez, Slaven Bilic's team is now preparing a £25 million offer for Sporting Lisbon's 25-year-old central midfielder William Carvalho, according to the Daily Mail.




Mourinho said: "I think everybody is in Europe".

The United boss admitted he still remains hopeful of signing a wide player, with Mourinho having already conceded it is "game over" for their chances of signing Real Madrid's Gareth Bale.

The 28-year-old appeared to push for a move last month by reiterating his desire to play in the Champions League, but there is a renewed optimism in north London that he will now stay. Both Lacazette and Giroud need strong seasons to make sure they are in the French party travelling to the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer.

Arsenal will be feeling confident ahead of this one as they came from behind to win the Community Shield last weekend against Chelsea on penalties.
