Man Utd: Expect a title challenge from Mourinho's men

The towering Serbian - who had won two Premier League titles during his time at Stamford Bridge - elected to reunite with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United in a move worth £40.

But which side will take the bragging rights this season?

The Big Call with BetStars makes a comeback (PRESS RELEASE) - Premier League victor Hernan Crespo is the latest sport star to team up with online betting site BetStars to make his big calls ahead of the 2017/18 Premier League kick-off.

These new assets were acquired to help form an incredibly talented squad that Mourinho now must bring together to challenge the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City.

Crystal Palace has also enjoyed better growth than both Chelsea and Arsenal (3.46%), however, Brighton's promotion revives one of the stranger footballing rivalries and the Seagulls come out on top with prices growing more than double that of Crystal Palace in the previous year (7.12%).

However, with the loss of Nemanja Matic in the heart of the midfield and no end in sight on the Diego Costa saga, Chelsea may be looking a little threadbare in 2017/18.

Chelsea have struggled more than many of their rivals to navigate what Conte this week described as a "crazy transfer market".

The stage is set for Chelsea's title defence as they play host to the Clarets of Burnley in match-week one.

Matic's departure will force Conte to accelerate Bakayoko's progress into the starting XI when he returns to fitness.

Birmingham City and Middlesbrough want Chelsea's Lewis Baker
Baker is more than capable of starring in the Sky Bet Championship and Boro are thought to be confident of fending off several clubs to secure the player's signature.

For a serial collector of trophies at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, finishing his first season in English football without a single title was an unusual feeling for Guardiola.

Home draws were a regular occurrence in Manchester United's disappointing sixth-place finish last season.

Conte has already signed four new recruits so far with goalkeeper Willy Caballero, centre-back Antonio Rudiger, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and striker Alvaro Morata all arriving in recent weeks.

However, in their last game before the start of the Premier League, they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of lasts year's Champions League winners Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup final on Tuesday.

"Matic knows very well what I think about him", he said.

Burnley - It was a decent season for it last time, but this one will be far tougher and it hasn't signed the quality to keep its status in the Premier League. We are the most physical league.

Burnley are hoping to capitalise on early-season uncertainty as they bid to emerge from a visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday with a surprise win over Premier League champions Chelsea, the Lancashire club's defender Ben Mee has said.

"Matic was very important and sometimes you could look past him at other players like [N'Golo] Kante, Hazard, who catch the eye, but he played a very positionally disciplined role for Chelsea with the way they go forward". I think he will score a lot of goals, I really do'.
