World Cup victor Paul Pogba's third minute penalty and a late goal from Luke Shaw gave Manchester United a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford in the opening game of the Premier League season on Friday. I think he would.

This time past year, Everton were thought to have had a positive transfer window by splashing out on players like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen and Michael Keane.

"If the player performs well and helps us to achieve our goals, nobody will speak about the price of the player".

Manager Rafa Benitez will be relieved that captain Jamaal Lascelles has opted to stay at St. James Park and will look to maintain the standards that saw the Magpies finish tenth in the table last season. "We just want to go up and that's it". While Europe will again offer Liverpool an outlet to entertain, getting themselves back into the Premier League shake-up is the priority, both in the stands and the boardroom. In most leagues there are one or two teams who are better than the others, but in England there are five or six who could reasonably win the title.

Pep Guardiola's star-studded side may be the team to beat once more this season but Red Devils legend Rooney believes Jose Mourinho could topple the club's biggest rivals if he completes two more signings. "I feel that we have the players and the quality to retain the title this year though". But there isn't just one team.

The lira has been under sustained pressure on foreign exchanges, dropping by nearly 50% against the dollar in the past 12 months. It is host to an X-band radar, a critical part of the Western alliance's missile defence system again Iran.

Midfielder Joe Ralls says Cardiff City's team spirit will be key to their survival this season. United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham will also be strong in the new season.

"It doesn't matter who you are playing in the Premier League, they are tough". The Foxes grabbed one goal back through Jamie Vardy's strike during the injury-time but it was too late for Claude Puel's troops to stage a comeback.

His side are favourites to beat Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium, but the Terriers will have fresh in the memory the 1-1 draw against the Blues at Stamford Bridge last season which secured their Premier League safety.

With Chelsea and Arsenal both beginning years with new managers and huge questions marks over what comes next, not spending buckets of cash on new players isn't such a awful thing - both United and Tottenham are expected and expect of themselves to be in the top 4, maybe even compete for the titles.
