Guardiola's team are the favourites for the domestic title once again as they prepare to kick off the new season at Arsenal on Sunday.

The bar has been raised by Manchester City and the Premier League title hopefuls know they will have little room for error if they are to challenge Pep Guardiola's side this season.

"I feel this season we are really strong". Many are tipping Liverpool to be their closest challengers this season, after a a £123.6m spending spree this summer.

"People ask "can you improve on 100 points" and I say no because we are not here to do that".

Shearer said: It has been a long time since anyone won back-to-back titles but I think City will win the Premier League again because of Pep - he won't want their standards slipping.

United are further hamstrung with a host of key players including Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford involved in the later stages of the World Cup limiting their pre-season preparations.

After Jose Mourinho bolstered his squad over the summer by signing young defender Diogo Dalot, Brazil global Fred and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant, Shaw believes that United will be more than a match for rivals this campaign. However, I just think this team is lacking the attacking flair and a prolific striker, with Troy Deeney struggling to recreate his early Premier League form. "Nobody is consistent with 11 players".

Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders join Spider-Man sequel
Now we know a couple of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are suiting up again to meet Spidey on the big screen for the first time. Jake Gyllenhaal is also all but confirmed to play Quentin Beck, better known as his evil, mind-bending alter-ego, Mysterio.

City haven't dipped into the deep pockets of their Abu Dhabi owners as significantly as Guardiola's first two summers in charge, but have still strengthened with club record signing Riyad Mahrez.

Chelsea have become well-known for flying out of the traps, but last season the Blues suffered a shock opening day defeat at the hands of Burnley.

But Stones briefly moved up the field when Vincent Kompany came on as a substitute late in the 2-0 Community Shield win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Although Maurizio Sarri's new Chelsea isn't expected to move for another transfer, a potential Thibaut Courtois move to Real Madrid would see the Blues moving for his replacement, now thought to be Kepa Arrizabalaga.

"I feel this season we can do it", Shaw added.

Yet, based on the World Cup performances of Golden Boot victor Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen among others, there is still plenty for Mauricio Pochettino to look forward to.
