Chasing Premier League records no motivation for Guardiola

Chasing Premier League records no motivation for Guardiola

Kane has scored 140 goals in 213 career appearances for Tottenham, and if they are to have any chance whatsoever of toppling City this season, the England worldwide hitman will need to be at his very best for the entirety of the campaign.

As the Premier League's transfer window closed Thursday, the top title contenders have now completed their squad building until January.

He has also stuck to his principles and playing style, which is why I think he must be regarded as one of the best coaches in world football.

Nearly as interesting as the battle for the Premier League title is the jostle to avoid relegation.

Certainly, Spurs can not afford a repeat of the sluggish start that marred the opening weeks of last season if they are to challenge champions Manchester City and a Liverpool side that, by stark contrast, will feature £160 million of new signings this term.

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore hopes defending champions Manchester City face a stiffer challenge in the coming season.

1XBet ties up with Cardiff City as first Premier League partner

Having been a player at Liverpool, I certainly know that the club and its supporters demand success.

This brings me to the remaining four hopefuls - Spurs, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Cardiff went down at the end of the season and within two years, all of the eight players that they signed that summer had left the club. Between new deals for returning players, new signings and loans, Wolves locked in almost a dozen players over the summer, headlined by a club-record $30-million million move for Spanish midfielder Adama Traore from Middlesborough.

Though the former dressing room exuded history and reminiscence of the glory years under Sir Alex Ferguson, most United fans will be in no doubt that the home players' changing room needed a solid do-over.

The stat will understandably delight Manchester United fans, who despite being behind their rivals in terms of domestic stature, can still use the argument over their respective youth systems as a way of ensuring bragging rights.

However, out of those three Wolves look the best equipped to stay the distance. The north London club have often done things differently when it comes to buying and selling players, with chairman Daniel Levy earning a reputation as a hard negotiator who is unafraid to leave things until late in the day.
