Are Pep's men the team to stop? – Man City 2017/18 Season Preview

Fans in Britain who have tuned into Sky Sports's nonstop coverage of the Premier League, have heard little talk about whether Leicester can upset Arsenal or if Tottenham can improve on last season's impressive second-place finish. Jesus scored seven goals in 10 league appearances last season, but his debut campaign was frustratingly disrupted by a foot injury.

"It's the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers".

Javier Hernandez has been extremely outspoken this week as the 2017-18 Premier League season commences.

"I never complained for one bad game or bad defeat, making excuses, never, even in Germany I never said that, never in my life I make an excuse about what happened. What we had was midfielders and wingers scoring, and even central defenders scoring goals from set pieces", Mourinho said.

He expected Brighton to pose a threat on their return to top-flight of English football for the first time in 34 years.

One of which was against West Ham, United's opponents on Sunday as the new Premier League season gets underway. The group of players are going to stay here for a long time.

"But it has been very good so far and I am looking forward to the season", the midfielder said. "City were very interested in me, but it was many things that made me sign".

The likes of Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini will provide options from the bench as Paul Pogba should be deployed in the advanced midfield role.

But the most intriguing signings are the three fullbacks. But whispers are he is back with the first team for the Old Trafford trip. It's not hard this season to motivate them to that level.

This will be the first competitive meeting between these two clubs since Brighton & Hove Albion won a League Cup tie on penalties in September 2008.

Residents of the Lancashire town do earn the lowest average weekly wage, but also have the lowest house prices to contend with meaning they can pay off the typical mortgage quickest.

The 1-1 score-line is fairly unremarkable, but it was a clash that decided the fate of that season's Premier League title after United missed their chance to overtake Blackburn on the final day. If he wants us to play together we can, as we have already shown.

But how do those differences play out on the mortgage market?

"I will do my best like I did last season".

New signings Davy Propper, Izzy Brown, Markus Suttner, Pascal Gross and Mathew Ryan are all available for the Seagulls.

A similar side to the one that lost to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday in Skopje has to be expected.

Man Utd: There are no new injury worries for Mourinho to contend with.
