5 young players ready for Premier League breakthrough

How Wenger blocked Arsenal board from selling Alexis Sanchez, buying Lemina

Yaya Toure

The Citizens had a stellar offseason, and signed five key players that are in large part the source of all the excitement around the Etihad. Another good question that can be answered in the match against Brighton is does Aguero play the majority of matches including the matches against the top 6 or does Jesus start up top against the lesser teams and plays with Aguero against the top 6 teams giving Manchester City an added attacking threat.

City were many bookmakers' favourites for the title last season but finished 15 points behind champions Chelsea and Guardiola said he gives little attention to such labels and claimed he felt under no more pressure despite a trophyless debut campaign.

Up next for Wenger's side is a trip to the Bet365 stadium to face Stoke City next Saturday where Gunners' fans will be hoping to secure a second successive Premier League victory. Manchester CIty should score 3 goals themselves so I think this is quite a safe bet also.

"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".

Jose Mourinho says more players need to chip in with goals this season if Manchester United are to challenge for the Premier League.

And Mourinho admits that the Red Devils will have to deal with the weight of history on their shoulders when they return to the competition proper. However, they are yet to sign a wide player. "If the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play".

"I must tell you I opened the door for him at some stage (to leave) because it's important for him to play".

Leicester kick things off on Friday night at Arsenal, where they have lost on their last 10 visits and conceded 28 goals in the process.

After bolstering their squad, Guardiola's side - who came third last season - have been made favourites to win the title, but the City manager said he could cope with that burden.

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season". A good season for me?

"The group of players we will see this season is going to stay a long time here at Manchester City". The left back joins on a free transfer from Schalke and could prove to be a coup for Arsene Wenger as the man who was in the Bundesliga team of the season looks to make a name for himself in the Premier League.

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.
