Manchester City are the clear favourites to retain their title after their brilliant campaign last season saw them set a record points tally of 100.

Just 14 per cent of that figure, £175m, was spent on transfers between two Premier League clubs - an unforeseen outcome of the league's window closing before the rest of Europe, according to Deloitte's Tim Bridge.

"I think you do take [the growing experience within the squad] on, our squad is getting younger and there are players who have won things".

"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that". "But at the same time they've got something to prove and previous year we gave most teams a run".

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.

Liverpool FC have been very busy in the summer transfer market, with the Reds having brought in Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker so far ahead of next season.

"And it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling that the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"I think the early closing of the window appears to have made clubs more reticent to sell players to other clubs in the Premier League", Bridge told Press Association Sport.

"Manchester United, you know the harmony isn't great there, but they've obviously got great players, a great manager".
