Alan Shearer And Ian Wright Make Their Premier League Predictions

"I speak to clubs who say: 'This is fantastic, we knew what the deadline was and we've worked to that.' But there are other clubs who say they haven't got time and wish we hadn't chose to do it". "In the higher teams in the top tier, when they play in all competitions, you need this kind of competition".

Man City's deal will be the third largest in the Premier League behind Chelsea and Manchester United.

City have been quiet in the transfer market, adding just Riyad Mahrez from Leicester, but their attacking potency and ability to dominate possession should be even stronger with the addition of the Algerian.

After the worldwide break, attention turns to Huddersfield Town v Liverpool (Saturday, October 20th, 5.30pm) and Leicester City v West Ham United (Saturday, October 27th, 5.30pm).

Over at Sky Sports, pundits Charlie Nicholas, Phil Thompson, Matt Le Tissier and Paul Merson all tip City to finish top and Liverpool second.




"I am sure Jose (Mourinho) has been getting the team right". They [Manchester City] have been playing some great football.

City begin the new season with a trip to Arsenal on Sunday and Spaniard Guardiola suggested the London side could pose a serious challenge this season under new manager Unai Emery.

Meanwhile their neighbours and reigning champions, Manchester City, have only acquired Riyad Mahrez and Pep Guardiola has already mentioned that a player to back up Fernandinho would be more than welcome.

Whether they can do it across a 38-game season, however, is the big question.

All the ingredients are there for a thrilling season but it is hard to see any of the mid-table sides pushing into the top six and the main battle for many clubs will, once again, be simply to survive.
