Manchester rivals splash the cash in bid to topple Chelsea

A look ahead to Friday's Premier League opener as Arsenal welcome Leicester City to the Emirates

A look ahead to Friday's Premier League opener as Arsenal welcome Leicester City to the Emirates

"So I think it's a good buy for Leicester".

In general, Arsenal will have the upper hand because they play at home.

Bernardo Silva (43 million pounds): The Monaco midfielder became Manchester City's first summer signing and a lot is expected from the 22-year-old. The Swede has since been released but Mourinho splashed £75 million on Romelu Lukaku, who scored 25 Premier League goals for Everton last season.

His pace and power will be a hard proposition for any defender in the Premier League but he would need to work on his build-up play and first-touch, which was a matter of concern for the big Belgian in previous seasons. The 28-year-old may be a favourite among fans and team mates, but the squad showed during their Community Shield victory that they could play well without the German.

Arsenal certainly appear to be doing all they can to hold onto their star man, at least for another season, but that will not stop the speculation that's for sure.

Leicester City will look to make a much better start this time around, after struggling early on last season, which eventually led to Claudio Ranieri getting the sack.

"I have players coming back who have not played, like [Shkodran] Mustafi". I don't need assurances sometimes because that's what the reality is. I'm honest in my job.

"I don't think I am in a position to be moaning and crying".

"Kolasinac is a good player, he has an attitude that is suited to the premier league, that means hes determined, aggressive, forceful and he wants to play". I feel the same pressure at Barcelona when I arrived.

Nothing short of a stylish win over the Foxes will suffice for the Arsenal fans, who know the importance of starting the season with three points given the notorious fragility of their team's confidence.

Aaron Ramsey could also come back in to the side after overcoming a minor calf problem while Per Mertesacker may feature despite suffering a nasty cut above his eye at Wembley.

Unlike usual, this games being played under Friday night lights which has sparked up some debate, but hey, at least we're in action first.
