Man City tops Premier League table based on bookmakers' odds

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has been linked with a move away

If you look at the top six from last season, it will be hard to break into that.

Mourinho confirmed United are in talks to re-sign striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, following reports from Sky earlier this week. "We were quite good a year ago on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system". "We were focused on the striker scoring goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble". But our job is to try to bring the football club back to that stature.

The global ace is set to cause a storm just days before the start of the Premier League season.

Club record signing Alexandre Lacazette scored with just his second Arsenal touch to give them the lead within two minutes but they were pegged back by Shinji Okazaki's effort with just five minutes on the clock.

"The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time".

"He came out and made a statement which we are all aware of but while he trains and plays and is professional the way he is, he will be considered for selection". "I don't want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or one medal".

"We had lots of dominance at home, lots of chances, lots when the match should be two or three nil and in the end was 1-1".

Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans' View
Key Player: Alexandre Lacazette - There is pressure on Arsenal's marquee signing to score the goals to push them towards the title.

Tottenham's Harry Kane finished last season with eight goals in his last three games as he surged past Lukaku to win his second successive Golden Boot.

Mendy is the club's most expensive new addition this season so far, having joined from Monaco in a £49.3m deal last month, but has been on the sidelines ever since with a troublesome thigh injury.

The Portuguese coach concedes his squad is "similar" to the one he took charge of last season. Arsenal had more shots on target, 10-4 and more corner kicks, 9-4 and 70-30 of possession.

Brighton and Hove Albion - Although in my bottom three, I see this as a great opportunity for Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan as he's going to be very busy.

"I will do my best like I did last season. We have top quality". I think if you read the French papers, they are on [Kylian] Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market'.

A move failed to transpire, although Willian struggled to cement his place in Antonio Conte's first-choice line-up and started less than half of their Premier League games as he had to make do with appearances from the substitutes' bench, along with a few niggling injuries. Chelsea, without European football, were able to run away with the title, as Leicester managed to do the season before. "I worked with Mourinho and I became his friend as well", he explained to Goal.
