English Premier League: Heavyweights set for first bouts

All our players got a decent number of minutes of good competition, so overall the squad looks good.

"This has happened to us the last three seasons here", he told Sky Sports. While the Football Association attempts to defend its internationals with a wooden sword, the Premier League, a steamroller, trundles on. In France, you have Paris that produces maybe 60 or 70% of players.

"Brighton" lost only one of the seven previous matches. What we had was midfielders, wingers, scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces.

"They had chances and then we had to chase. It depends on many other circumstances but we've tried to buy good defenders but also creative players and strikers to score more goals".

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed".

"Like every club that's promoted to the Premier League, it's to finish 17th or higher".

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better". The former Leicester man, who claimed 15 goals in the Championship last season, injured ankle ligaments in July but is close to making a return.

"But I don't want him to go and in the end he chose to stay and it was one of the days of recent weeks for me because I know how important he is. We have to be positive as it's the first game".

Substitute Aaron Ramsey slammed home and 83rd minute equaliser before Olivier Giroud met Granit Xhaka's corner to win the season opener.

Mourinho goes into his second season at Old Trafford needing significant improvement in the Premier League after United finished sixth in May.

Shakespeare believes Arsenal will be title challengers this season but ultimately thinks Manchester City will have too much for the rest of the league. Leicester City was 12th a year ago after shocking the world by winning the title the previous season, and the squad is listed as a +550 dog with the draw at +350.

"Giroud? He's fantastic", Wenger said of the France worldwide, who usually started on the bench last season and had been linked with a move away from The Emirates.

"This time we are all in the same basket and it will be the same for everybody".
