I doubt there's high expectations as they've just lost their best player and have a transfer embargo. That and his status at the club may get him some time but who really knows with Chelsea?

I expect him to do a recall on some of their loads at least, look at who they have anyway as Chelsea have a massive squad just not many play. The Embargo will hurt however. Not being able to replace Hazard.



Hmm, pie.

Man the African Cup has been something, the upsets continue as Morocco are eliminated and Benin make the quarters for the first time ever the latter had never even made it out of the group stages before.



Chile might just be the team Messi doesn't like playing against the most.



Wanted to catch on the transfers market, I was surprised to read that Valverde is still leading Barca? I assumed he'd be out by the end of the season. Don't think new signings will make them a better team, unless it's another game changer like Messi.



So, PL transfer window has closed and Liverpool vs Teemu Pukki will launch the season tomorrow.

I'm pretty happy with our transfer business this summer. I still think we needed one quality centreback but I guess you can't fix everything instantly. But with Tierney, Nicolas Pepe and Ceballos on board our squad looks solid enough for top 4 finish. Holding & Bellerin will hopefully be back soon. David Luiz came out of nowhere (if the deal happens at all) and while he's not the best defender we can really use his passing and playmaking skills. It'll take pressure off Xhaka and improve us.

Aubameyang & Lacazette signed new contracts. Iwobi is apparently sold to Everton for good chunk of money. I hope we'll get rid of Mustafi, Elneny and Mkhitaryan soon and give promising youngsters like Nelson, Martinelli, Willock and Smith-Rowe more minutes.

We're around 3 quality signings away from being a really strong team. Thing is, with Wenger and old regime we'd never make those signing but now I'm absolutely certain we will. Future is looking good atm. Now it's up to Emery to deliver.

That was a fast pre-season, yikes. I'm not sure I'm ready for another season, feels like yesterday that we were lifting the UCL trophy. Oh well.

We've been doing those Premier League predictions for a while now, are we doing it this year too?



This is it. Let's go. Fantasy Team is done. Bets placed. Saints signings made. Bring on actually having something to do at the weekend again (Watch football).



Hmm, pie.

I changed my team a hundred times today!

But i think i'll go with this team! how's yours?

I reckon City will win again sadly, by a more handsome margin than last season (around 10-15 points).



Okay, I'll do the thing. Probably too late for this, though, hmm...
