Aussies set to step up for EPL kick-off

Andriy Shevchenko  Fernando Torres

Expectations were sky-high when Guardiola alighted in Manchester after years of being courted by City, but a title challenge failed to materialise and his side did not make a mark in any of the cup competitions.

We tried to make it a young squad and we did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks.

This summer has seen the likes of defender Kyle Walker go to Manchester City for £50m and Real Madrid benchwarmer Alvaro Morata go to Chelsea for £58m.

Swansea striker Tammy Abraham, on loan from Chelsea, would outscore team-mate Fernando Llorente on 23 goals - if he can maintain his form of 23 goals from 3,424 minutes in the Championship for Bristol City last term.

"We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we decided to put energy in the team for the next five, six years", he said.

Having made his name at Huddersfield, manager Wagner has no doubts about his star midfielder's ability to cut it against the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and his old club City. These signings are also a testament to Everton's smart usage of the money received from the John Stones and Romelu Lukaku transfers.

He has been at City since age 6, and was selected on the bench for the Champions League game against Celtic in December. Craig Shakespeare righted the ship last season after taking over in January, but anything less than a top half finish will be a disappointing season for him.

Comparisons have been drawn to Thierry Henry, but even Arsenal's prolific striker took time to adjust to English physicality, failing to score in his first eight games after his arrival from Juventus.

"I knew there was potential there, to get the club back on its feet".

Arsenal reacted well and started to box Leicester in, Welbeck seeing a shot blocked before he dallied on a later effort. "So, I didn't think twice when I got the proposal from City". I think the tensions between the board and Conte will simmer underneath all season and be a distraction for Chelsea.

It's also the start of the season in Germany where Mathew Leckie and Mitch Langerak are set to feature in the first round of the German Cup.

The south coast club's last home game in the top flight was a 1-0 defeat by City on May 7 1983. I am excited. I am looking forward to it. Not the heartaches or the rotten post match moods.

"In my other clubs what I had was more players scoring goals", he said ahead of tomorrow's Premier League opener at home to West Ham.

In my own opinion, I feel as if the talented attacker will have a great year; establishing himself as a lethal weapon. You just don't know how new players are going to adapt, what the morale of a squad is like, how the three-month break has affected the team as a whole, who is super fit, who isn't etc.

Despite their long stay in the Champsionship, Ipswich Town remain in the top league for house price growth. We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City.

Their summer signings have improved the team and I don't think Pep Guardiola has stopped spending yet.

"I'm happy to start Sunday - we are ready". Now he has the chance to follow in his mentor's footsteps. If you prefer your commentary in Spanish, NBC Universo and Telemundo are the channels to tune into.

The spine of Jose Mourinho's side could lead them to the title regardless of whether a fourth signing arrives or not.
