Pep Guardiola confirms Manchester City’s remaining transfer plans on Sky Sports

Arsenal legend, Martin Keown has predicted the English Premier League (EPL) clubs that will finish in the top-four this season.

The Merseyside outfit will be aiming to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title this season after they ended up in fourth place but invested heavily in their squad over the summer.

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore hopes defending champions Manchester City face a stiffer challenge in the coming season.

City dominated last season by playing possession-based football featuring a number of tactical innovations and it will be fascinating to see to what extent their rivals seek to emulate the approach of Guardiola.

Other players to keep an eye on are Leicester's Harry Maguire, who is reported to be still keen on joining Manchester United, and Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele who is linked with Arsenal.

Liverpool FC have brought in Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker as they prepare for the new season under German boss Klopp.

The Premier League is yet to employ the VAR system which was employed during the World Cup in Russian Federation.

BT Sport is delighted to reveal the Premier League games it will show exclusively live on TV and online in October and November. But the decision has been made and we'll analyse it in September when it's all over.

Manchester City will aim to improve their performance rather than beat last season's record-breaking Premier League tally of 100 points, manager Pep Guardiola has said.

"I speak to clubs who say: "This is fantastic, we knew what the deadline was and we've worked to that".
