Can Liverpool work their way up to PL Champions this season?

Manchester United: five predictions for 2017-18

Premier League chief 'glad' clubs didn't spend €222m on Neymar

But any silverware will do at this point for fans of the club: Tottenham have not won a trophy since the 2008 League Cup. These clubs have their regular season, but also different tournaments that they play in during the season.

Sure, many will remember the 2013/14 season when Liverpool came very close to winning it, and it was arguably a mistake from their Skipper Steven Gerrard that cost them the League.

I think there is going to be another tight battle at the bottom of the table again in 2017 to avoid relegation, but I'm going to go with Watford to be sent down. The team also will not have to play in the Champions League unlike their title rivals, and may not take the Europa League all that seriously.

Questions have been asked a number of times about Joe Hart's concentration and performances in recent years.

There has been no significant strengthening of the squad this summer, and with Spurs forced to play their home games at Wembley this season, bookmakers are predicting a fourth-placed finish for Spurs, who can be backed at 10-1. However, Walker has since departed for Manchester City and Rose will begin the season with an injury, which means the spotlight is on Kieran Trippier to perform well.

He may have been dubbed the Cannibal of Ajax by a Dutch newspaper, but he had scored 111 goals from 159 matches for his club before he reached Anfield as Liverpool's most expensive signing ever.

Jesus had a 30 percent conversion rate in the Premier League, which is practically unsustainable, but he has the ability to score at least 20 goals with creative players such as Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne around him. "Football is just a job...there are more important things in life than kicking a ball around", said the French-born Cameroonian defender who spent much of his career at Tottenham Hotspur.

Bookmakers are slightly more cautious than last summer, but at 15-8 there's no doubt that City are the clear favourites for Premier League glory.

He was one of the most loved foreigners to play in the Premier League ever. That gave Ndlovu the honour to make history as the first African footballer to play in the English Premiership revolution that would see the league's value soar incredibly, in its first 25 years of existence, and its appeal spread across the globe. All 20 teams are in action, with seven games Saturday, and two more Sunday. "While the name might mean little to today's generation, Ndlovu brought class when foreign players were a Premier League rarity", the magazine said.

Let's go ahead and kick this off (pun!) with the bottom of the bunch. These signings are also a testament to Everton's smart usage of the money received from the John Stones and Romelu Lukaku transfers.

Chalobah was considered one of the Chelsea academy graduates most likely to break into the first team but departed this summer having made just one league start. Gray was always going to need patience to make his mark at the King Power Stadium.

The 23-year-old became England's most expensive goalkeeper - and third on the world list - with a £30million summer switch from Everton.

Pep Guardiola found it tough with ageing fullbacks in Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy, Aleksandar Kolarov and Bacary Sanga, whose inadequacies were exaggerated with City's philosophy of playing inverted full-backs.

Now he is looking forward to his new role as a radio commentator. The only really area of concern is depth in the midfield.

Still I see the team improving and getting back into the Champions League with plenty of room to spare.

Roy Keane. revered for his leadership qualities, as well as his aggression.

Yeah, every year we have these guys who turn out to be less interesting than advertised.

Lukaku will influence Pogba's performances, mainly because the commanding forward does not occupy space deep in the midfield like Zlatan Ibrahimovic. "He's still remembered fondly in the Midlands".

Ederson is the modern-day YouTube keeper, smashing half-field passes to the feet of attackers with elegance while acrobatically diving to almost anything, regardless of the difficulty of shot coming his way.
