Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Manchester City

I wouldn't be happy either: Scholes writes off joyless Manchester United

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, starts his third season at the Etihad Stadium on the back of a record-winning Premier League season with much focus being on retaining the title and improving on their underwhelming Champions League campaign from last season. Our first-half was a good performance with good quality, good pressing, good play forward and a lot of chances.

United claimed a 2-1 victory over Leicester City in their Premier League opener and Mourinho continued to lament the lack of summer spending from those above him.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he is relaxed about his team being Premier League title favourites once again. The Foxes were without Algerian star man Riyad Mahrez who joined the champions in the summer.

Liverpool made four big-name signings in Alisson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri as they strengthened their squad from back to front.

While several pundits already consider the Premier League a two-horse race between Manchester City and Liverpool this year, Moyes believes United will take some beating.

Guardiola says key players Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are both available to face Arsenal on Sunday, after returning to training on Monday following their respective runs to the World Cup semi-finals with Belgium and England.

Exacerbating the problem is that orcas do not have babies often or in large numbers, and when they do, it is a long process. There hasn't been a successful birth among the southern resident killer whales in three years.

Marko Arnautovic has been banging them in during pre-season and caused Liverpool problems at Anfield past year, striking the woodwork with the score still 0-0.

"Every player has his own way to decide to play the game. I'm happy for them", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

City will make late checks on Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy after they picked up knocks during the Community Shield win over Chelsea last weekend but both players are expected to be passed fit.

However, the Red Devils managed to keep hold of Pogba as transfer deadline day passed and it looks increasingly likely that he will stay in Manchester for the season ahead.

Liverpool undoubtedly look like a stronger side, but have they done enough to close the 25-point gap between themselves and City?
