"In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players".
With the Premier League season set to begin, there are still may questions floating around.
City only earned 10 points from matches against their nearest rivals.
In search of goals, United turned to last season's second-highest scorer.
It was one of the costliest moves in Europe during a summer transfer window that saw United midfielder Paul Pogba replaced as the most expensive player in football by Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for €222 million (S$355 million). All the money I was putting into the club prior to getting planning (for the Amex) was pretty much worthless if we didn't get it. Watford, Burnley, and most notably Stoke City may all have seasons that they might want to forget. That isn't to say you can't at least pretend to take over them and show their digital boards what you'd be able to do in the league if given the opportunity.
United will hope new £75million signing Romelu Lukaku can help to improve that record.
He added: "But we prefer to be aggressive without the ball, it's the same as last season". Two, you may just want to intentionally slam Costa into a bus and laugh while remembering that you won't have to face him this season.
Mauricio Pochettino's men scored 47 goals at home and conceded only nine.
- Chelsea's title-winning side in 2004-05 conceded a record low 15 goals.
New manager Frank de Boer starts the campaign in a very safe position and will be given time to exert his methods onto the squad, but surely not for too long.
What's special about this season specifically is that the Premier League will witness a sea of changes.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has assembled a side capable of holding their own against anyone, but for two years in a row they have fallen short in the title race. Particularly with the energy of Fernandinho shielding in front of them.
It is easy to forget that both Man City and Man United were resounding favourites to lift the title last season, with many tipping it to be a two-way fight for glory. That tally for Arsenal was the worst in the big six, and also poorer than Southampton, Everton and West Brom.
Looking forward to tons of drama, goals, and red cards!
The 18 conceded at Anfield may not sound terrible, but it was a higher figure than all the other teams in the top six, as well as city rivals Everton.
The pressure is on Alvaro Morata to make an immediate impact as Chelsea's first-choice striker, as he seeks to replace Diego Costa, who is not in the plans of manager Antonio Conte.
"The two Manchester clubs will duke it out for the title, but City have key weaknesses at the base of their spine with injury-prone leaders; United don't have that problem and while they won't be a remarkably fun side to watch; in Mourinho's second season they will be ruthless, especially against the smaller sides that so confounded them previous year".
