World Cup hangover lingers over Premier League kick-off

World Cup hangover lingers over Premier League kick-off

In a study conducted by ESPN, Intel and the University of Bath, Liverpool have been deemed as the most unlucky team of last season's Premier League, with Manchester United named as the most fortunate team in the division.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

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

All in all, there's never been a better time to join BT Sport as it is set to be our biggest and best season yet.

The window closes on Thursday Aug. 9, three weeks sooner than normal, with the Premier League season starting on Saturday. "But we don't believe a lot in the winter market and for sure next season it will be better for him", Mourinho said after beating City to his signature.

Indeed it would be no surprise if they finished in the top half of the division, but I am less optimistic about the prospects of both Cardiff and Fulham and expect both sides to struggle to make much of an impact on their return to the Premier League. Many are tipping Liverpool to be their closest challengers this season, after a a £123.6m spending spree this summer.

"When you improve individually you improve the team".

At least 56 injured after truck collision sparks explosion on Bologna highway
The collision caused an explosion, forcing a ball of fire to erupt into the air, and huge clouds of black smoke to fill the sky. One person was killed and up to 70 people were injured in the blast, which happened around 15:00 UAE time today, police said.

They get the ball forward quickly, it'll work for the first five to six games, and they need to get off to a flyer, but it could catch up with them after that.

So far, City's only significant arrival of the summer transfer window has been Riyad Mahrez, who completed a £60m switch from Leicester City in July.

Chelsea have become well-known for flying out of the traps, but last season the Blues suffered a shock opening day defeat at the hands of Burnley.

Despite missing a host of World Cup stars, City looked in ominous form as they dismissed Chelsea 2-0 to lift the Community Shield at the weekend but face a tough start as Arsenal begin the post-Arsene Wenger era at the Emirates on Sunday. "We've discussed that many times in Europe".

In contrast to the change across London, Tottenham Hotspur have yet to add a single signing ahead of their first season in a new 62,000 capacity stadium.

World Cup victor Paul Pogba is also unlikely to be fit for the game at Old Trafford.
