'It's happened again!' - Vardy frustrated by another Leicester defeat to Arsenal

'It's happened again!' - Vardy frustrated by another Leicester defeat to Arsenal

'We always had that so my teams always had the goalscorer, we always had the guy that scores more goals, but then we had the winger that scored 15 goals, we had the midfield player who scored 10 goals, we had the central defender that scored five goals. The players are champing at the bit to get started.

Chelsea - The Blues were a powerhouse last season, especially when Antonio Conte changed to a back three - there was simply no looking back.

Giroud came off the bench with Arsenal trailing 3-2 in Friday's Premier League curtain-raiser at the Emirates Stadium and after fellow substitute Aaron Ramsey equalised, he headed in an 85th-minute victor.

But with a sixth place finish in the Premier League and a quarter-final exit in the FA Cup, Pogba says the team are aiming to win it all this season and get United back to being regular multiple-trophy winners.

Guardiola anticipates that he'll see an improvement in his defence but insists they need to be better at the other end of the pitch too if they are to compete for the Premier League.

A real class player, a lot has not been made of him arriving at Leicester but he could turn out to be a brilliant signing - I think he could make a huge impact. "We kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding", he said.

"It's simple, in every game he is stronger since he joined us", Wenger said. "But if you go to England it's £20-£25m more expensive", the Spaniard told a news conference ahead of City's Premier League opener with Brighton & Hove on Saturday.

"He thinks he can do more at football's highest level so we are having conversations and discussing the possibility of him staying for the second part of the season".

"The first goal is on a short corner, we were not focused enough".

Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it. Make no mistake, for teams like Huddersfield success is staying up. However, "citizens" and past year had such a status, but in the end they were forced to fight for a place in the four.

City's playing staff has undergone a massive overhaul over the last two summer transfer windows after Guardiola took over one of the oldest squads in Europe.
