Apparently* City have spent more on their defence this year (160m quid) than about 50 countries have.

Well, "defence" is a loosely defined term... attacking full-backs and ball-playing keepers. Still don't see them being solid at the back, but will be exciting to watch.

United need Lukaku to hit the ground running and to find a few more goals from other positions. Chelsea have had something of a turbulent summer, and both they and Arsenal also have a new number 9 that they will instantly need to rely on.

Spurs, no new signings and the Wembley issue, it could unravel for them, but then again, on field stability could pay off. Liverpool haven't done that much business either, unlike their up and coming neighbours...

So, anyone's guess really. Maybe someone will leap from the pack, Leicester style...

Arsenal with their customary defeat at Stoke... when are they going to put Punxsutawney Phil on their club badge?

A bit extreme perhaps, we're not in Westeros... or Washington Wink
