Heavyweights set for first bouts — English Premier League

Ready to begin their debut Premier League campaign Brighton takes on Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.

"I am going to play football, which is something I was fighting for since I was a kid, and then we will see what happens".

Despite fresh speculation linking him with a return to Spain this summer David De Gea looks set to stay at United and continue as their No.1 this season with Sergio Romero once again his back-up.

The 35-year-old, who scored 28 goals for United last season, has been at the club during his rehabilitation and Mourinho said the Swede could feature in the second half of the season.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the table in Mourinho's first term in charge as they effectively surrendered their remaining domestic fixtures in order to prioritise winning the Europa League. And if it's deemed accidental then the goal should have stood, no? I'm not in a position to say I'm not happy. Step by step, we're going to fight.

After a slow start at Leicester following his move from Birmingham City halfway through the 2015-16 season, Gray is beginning to make his presence felt at the King Power Stadium. "If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know". NBC will be there to provide the TV coverage while the game can also be watched online live on FuboTV. (He will miss the opening game due to injury.) Manager Arsene Wenger insists the club doesn't want to sell Sanchez, but he has only a year left on his contract and could leave for free next year. Kayal will be out for 12 weeks with a leg injury.

"It's different to any one of the other leagues". Joe Hart is on loan to West Ham United.

"We needed to do that because it was one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League, and we need to change it. We were not able with those players to find a solution".

I would go for Manchester United to finish second. "What I'm puzzling over is whether a handball can be deliberate enough to warrant a free-kick, but at the same time accidental enough that a yellow card is harsh". "Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces". With a full preseason under his belt with his new club, he will be a tantalizing prospect. The last defeat came before the previous meeting with Brighton, albeit only by a few weeks, as City went down 4-2 to Aston Villa in 2008. However, a large transfer war chest does not a champion squad make.

While Pep Guardiola's Manchester City has spent more than $260 million on new players this offseason, instantly making it a title favorite. Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo remain sidelined, but Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are both available after European suspensions.

"United were crying out for a central midfielder with the qualities of Nemanja Matic".
