Premier League Chief Executive Richard Scudamore have revealed that he would prefer the title race to go to the wire, instead of one team running away with English football's biggest prize.

There is little time for the Premier League's stars to shake off a World Cup hangover as less than a month on from Russia's summer showpiece, the chase to catch champions Manchester City begins in earnest on Friday.

"Also in the Chelsea defence Kurt Zouma, who was on loan at Stoke last season, a few clubs trying to sign him as well".

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Diego Dalot, Marcos Rojo and Nemanja Matic were all unavailable for Manchester United in their most recent match due to injury - all of which are expected to remain out of action. Jonny Evans, James Maddison and Nampalys Mendy are all doubts for the opening fixture.

"I think we are not going to make any more signings", Guardiola said on Sky Sports.


"But I hope someone can catch them - it would be nice, so hopefully Manchester United can".

Jose Mourinho has spent much of the off-season moaning about Manchester United's squad and the lack of new faces, but there is still plenty of talent available to the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss.

The club have so far maintained the stance that Kovacic is not for sale, as they consider the 24-year-old to be an important player and are pessimistic of being able to find an affordable replacement of the same calibre. They each came up with their own top four.

"The people know we have a lot of competitions to play. After Riyad it was important to keep our players and add some good players to strengthen the team".

Shearer said: It has been a long time since anyone won back-to-back titles but I think City will win the Premier League again because of Pep - he won't want their standards slipping.
