Newly promoted Brighton will make its English Premier League debut against Manchester City to cap the action on what promises to be an eventful whole day of football on August 12th.

Everyone loves the opportunity of a fresh start in any aspect of their life. We tried to make it a young squad and we did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks.

This will be the first competitive meeting between these two clubs since Brighton & Hove Albion won a League Cup tie on penalties in September 2008. All of a sudden United are in the driving seat ahead of Chelsea to win the Premier League.

He added: "But we prefer to be aggressive without the ball, it's the same as last season". He would be playing with a chip on his shoulder, especially against the Foxes. But he insists, despite that, the title is a more realistic target. Of the three, only the Swedish defender failed to impress in pre-season.

Spending more than £200-million on six new players, including Tottenham Hotspur's Kyle Walker and Monaco duo Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva, puts Guardiola in a position to mount a stronger challenge this time.

"We needed to do that this summer because we have one of the oldest teams in Europe". The ground reality, however, is quite different.

Unsurprisingly it takes Manchester United and Manchester City stars Paul Pogba and Sergio Aguero less than one complete match to buy the average property in Manchester. Joe Hart is on loan to West Ham United.

There has been a lot of change at the Etihad Stadium over the summer with a number of new faces coming and a lot of the old guard heading out, but the massive shake-up certainly doesn't seems to have affected their pre-season form.

So for me I think Man City will miss out.

"I feel the same as when I went to Manchester United, when I went to Real Madrid and Leverkusen, and now West Ham", Hernandez continued.

That it is Leicester who kick off the campaign, the first of 380 Premier League games, away to Arsenal, and on the first occasion the league has started on a Friday night, appears hugely appropriate. "Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces".

What's particularly interesting here, though, is the style of fullback for which he's gone.

The Premier League is undoubtedly more competitive than most other top-flight football leagues. With a full preseason under his belt with his new club, he will be a tantalizing prospect.

Mourinho has won the domestic league title at the end of his second year in each of his five major management jobs.

Jesus ended last season with seven goals in eight Premier League starts, although arguably his two most famous strikes were disallowed for offside. Van Dijk signed a six-year contract with the Saints last year - such agreements no longer secure loyalty but appear designed only to raise a player's price.
