Premier League chairman speaks exclusively to The Voice

Premier League chairman speaks exclusively to The Voice”

Liverpool hit its stride toward the end of last season and then reportedly spent the most money of any English club in the off-season, bringing in goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielders Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri. The continuation of familiarity will also promote a feeling of comfort which is something new faces would have changed as there is a change in the dressing room and a feeling of "let's show the new guy what we're all about".

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier League's but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game". They both have new coaches who will attempt to get them back into the top four.

Mourinho, who will be without the likes of Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo on Friday, once again bemoaned the lack of preparation time for the start of the season, with many of his players having just returned to training after taking time off following the World Cup.

Under proposals presented to Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino by an internal task force, the transfer window would close the day before the start of the domestic season in each member country.

Tottenham Hotspurs was the only team in the league to not have signed any player in the current transfer window.

On potential debutant Riyad Mahrez, Guardiola added: "He knows the Premier League and that's a good point for us".

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.

Pochettino's belief is strengthened by Tottenham's success in persuading a number of key players, including England striker Harry Kane - the World Cup golden boot victor - to sign new contracts.

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola was hoping to add a more creative midfielder to his squad ahead of the 2018-2019 season and had a player in mind already, Jorginho. "We believe a lot in our players and why not repeat a similar season like previous year or the season before, and with more experience?"
