United have done great business all round - and good that they were able to keep Pogba, that guy is silently world-class, as much as people want to dismiss him as 'lazy'.

That United midfield is on-point, they just needed a solid DMC a Matic of 5 years ago, and they'd near enough walk the league this season.

City needs a few more games to gel completely, and they will be deadly too, same as Liverpool.

Chelsea is slyly underrated too, but I don't think they will be able to sustain a long threat like the others

Will be a good title race this year!

Tuchel is the best manger in the prem.

Chelsea will be taking City to the wire for the title.

Genuinely think the only thing to stop Utd now this season is if Ronaldo gets his legs broken

How did you come to this conclusion?

As far as I can see, won nothing at Dortmund, and won the domestic once at PSG.

I think Varane will be more of a loss for United than Ronaldo.

I reckon Chelsea will win it this year, should be close though!

What you think to the Harvey Elliott injury today?
I was at the game and couldn’t believe it when Stuijk was shown the red card. Ref never even blew for a foul initially - I personally only think he gave the red due to the extent of the injury. It wasn’t a bad/reckless tackle, just unfortunate.
Hope the lad recovers quickly nonetheless.

Always a red, dangerous tackle even if there was no intent. Ref not blowing is hardly surprising given how shit PL refs are.

Did you not see Tuchels first game in charge of Chelsea against Man City?

Or if you missed that what about the FA Cup semi-final?

I take it you missed the Champions League final Laughing out loud

Ah sorry pal, didn’t realise he got them to the FA cup semi finals! Roll Eyes

Nobody cares about the almost wins, show me some silverware, that’s the point of the sport isn’t it?

Only with Chelsea half a season and wins the big one.

The point I was making is that he's come to the prem and in a short space of time found the answers for Pep already.

Quite possibly.

Just shows how good Rafa was to do it with that squad in 2005, his first season in the prem Ubercool

So did Di Matteo… That said, Chelsea probably favourites along with City. Reckon Lukaku probably won’t turn up in the big games, but Tuchel has shown he knows how to win those, and then has big Rom to bag against any not great side.

Man U no chance, great squad but not with the manager to match. Liverpool to do well but don’t think they have the depth to challenge.

I don't even like Chelsea and hate that I'm having to defend them to a certain extent. I'd be gutted if I supported a top six side and saw that they got Tuchel and Lukaku. Laughing out loud

Man U have an incredible squad but feel Ole won't give his team enough edge in the big head to heads. Maybe Ronaldo makes the difference in them but we have to wait and see.

Liverpool looked good yesterday. Big test next weekend as my team always gives them a good game. Definitely in the mix with VVD back.

Spurs brought back down to earth on Saturday. Sticking out tongue Never going to be in the mix.

Bit exciting this season with fans back, all the top managers and players wanting to be here. Cool
