Initial signs were promising as Iheanacho set up Vardy for the winning goal in the final pre-season friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach last Friday. But such was the maturity he showed during his first-team opportunities - notably in a 1-1 draw at Manchester United in January - that regular starter Nathaniel Clyne could soon be under pressure for his place. Germany defender Antonio Rudiger also joined from Roma.
Defense wins titles, but goals are what the people want.
Jose Mourinho is beginning his second season at Old Trafford. He has done so for three clubs, including for the Seagulls in the League Cup in 2008 - the last time the two sides met. The England right back forced his way out of a Tottenham side that finished ahead of City in second place. He scored the victor in a Europa League qualifying match this month. Clubs like Everton, West Ham, Southampton, Bournemouth and Leicester themselves, have done well in the transfer market in an attempt to raise the bar and establish themselves as regular members of the top ten.
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.
The full back position has been another problem area and Kyle Walker, signed from Spurs, is a clear upgrade at right back and France global Benjamin Mendy from Monaco an improvement on the opposite flank.
Meanwhile, City have added Ederson, who is believed to be the answer to their goalkeeping troubles, and Bernardo Silva to midfield.
Out went the ageing Pablo Zabaleta, 32, Bacary Sagna, 34, and Gael Clichy, 32, and in came about £120 million worth (S$212 million) of full-backs in Danilo, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy - giving City a different dimension altogether. Boasting one of the league's best keepers and defensive pairs, Spurs are built strong from the back and are led by the league's top scorer in Harry Kane with the young player of the season Dele Alli just behind.
Romelu Lukaku has gone to Manchester United and Ross Barkley looks set to follow him out of Everton before the transfer window closes on August 31. Striker Romelu Lukaku cost at least 75 million pounds, while Mourinho offloaded captain Wayne Rooney in the opposite direction to Everton. "If I do get told I am playing against Watford (on Saturday) I will look to take that chance", Alexander-Arnold said.
Sanchez in particular has been the subject of intense speculation about his future amid reported interest from the big-spending duo of Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. But on the eve of the 2017/18 season, which team has the best attack in the Premier League?
