"It looks like everywhere there is many, many players and a bit of congestion at the moment everywhere", Wenger said.

Ghanaian born Chris Hughton will manage newly promoted English Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion they stage their comeback to the top flight after three decades. According to the Daily Record, PSG is close to completing the signing of Kylian Mbappe, the 18-year-old starlet of Monaco who is also wanted by Manchester City and Real Madrid. Long linked with a return to Chelsea, it was United who swooped to sign him for an initial £75million and they hope he can fill the voids left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rooney. Leave your comments below about how you think the top flight will pan out in 2017/2018.

Leicester famously defied odds of 5000/1 from the beginning of 2015-16 to win the Premier League that season, and bookmaker Marathonbet is offering the same on Brighton claiming the trophy this time around. Rolando Bianchi and Gelson Fernandes would not be long for the Etihad.

The Premier League has reined in the creativity of the ground staff.

Arsenal also embarks on a new campaign uncertain whether it will hold onto a key member of its squad.

They shouldn't be battling against relegation, yet here they are with not enough points to show for their spending. England likes to play up the role of the boss, turning them into almost mythical figures.

Southampton, conversely, will need to capitalise on their kind opening fixtures due to the difficulty of their run-in. The Premier League might be all about Champions League qualification, but there's still plenty to play for up and down the table.

The Sun newspaper reported Brighton were considering making a £12million bid for Wood, who is valued at $35million by Leeds, who are desperate to retain him. His passing is an underrated skill-he registered seven assists in the league last season-but more importantly, his capacity to sit in front of the back four offers the defense additional protection while, in theory, liberating Paul Pogba to be the marauding presence he was at his best for Juventus.

It was no surprise to see Keane move on from Burnley this summer after an impressive campaign where he broke into the England team too.

Curiously, Brighton's last home game in the top division of English football was against City in 1983. 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.

17 - Watford - Having acquired a new manager in the summer, Watford FC will manage to survive the drop, only just.

It's hard to begrudge them this as these sorts of big-name signings will be sure to have a positive impact on the blue half of Merseyside in 2017/2018.

While City are intimidating opposition, Brighton will go into the game with the adrenalin of promotion still pumping through their veins. It's also the line between elite success and failure in the Premier League, especially for the big clubs. Everyone has witnessed the way a Guardiola team can play when Pep has the right players and everyone understands the tactics, as Guardiola has won the Champions League twice with Barcelona and has steamrolled the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich three times.
