"Obviously with the money being spent, with all the managers, with Manchester City being stronger again, I'm really looking forward to this season, probably more than any Premier League season".

"He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person". The fact that the Serbian was sold was not the confusing bit, but that he was sold to Manchester United caused some discussion. "I worked with Mourinho and I became his friend as well", the 29-year-old told Goal. While they do have a talented starting 11, including repeat Golden Boot victor Harry Kane and two-time PFA Young Player of the Year victor Dele Alli, Tottenham is an injury or two away from struggling to compete in 2017-18. If you think about Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho - it is a very good championship now. "Nobody wants to lose their best players", Dyche said.

LONDON-After three years away, the 2017-18 Premier League balance of power has returned to Manchester.

In any sort of successful title defense, Conte's men must expect to beat Burnley in their opening match of the season.

Dyche and Burnley enjoyed a remarkable season a year ago, standing out for their resilience against the top clubs in particular.

However, Conte is thought to be out to further bolster his squad as they also prepare for a return to the Champions League this season.

'I don't think Morata will do it that way but he has to come in and be confident, believe in himself and show the quality he has possesses.

Another notable absentee from the team that swept to league glory a year ago is Diego Costa, who has not been part of the Blues squad this pre-season at all after being told he is free to leave.

United snatched the Everton striker Lukaku from under the noses of Premier League rivals Chelsea in one of the summer's biggest football stories and Crespo believes that the signing of the big Belgian will give United the edge they need to claim the title. But with their temporary move to Wembley this year, it could be a different story at the end of the season, with Brent home of Wembley Stadium, having seen a growth of just 0.90% annually.

Tottenham - It looks like a mistake that it hasn't strengthened its squad, though perhaps it still will before the season kicks off. Spurs had a terrific campaign last season and had it been any other season they would have won it.

"You would applaud that but those players aren't even at the club now". "I'm not saying they're completely conflicting". Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League previous year.

"For a defender especially it's worth watching strikers movements, not too much, not overkill but I think you can get an idea of what type of player they are like".
