"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday.

Mourinho went for a three at the back formation against Real Madrid in the Super Cup on Tuesday night but I think he might revert to a 4-2-3-1 this weekend.

Chelsea have the overall game for this league, they won it at a canter last season. Again they are starting to play that brand of football that we know Jose Mourinho does and in Jose's second season now, I think they will finish in top-four - they will do well.

Romelu Lukaku is a very good signing and Nemanja Matic is a brilliant pick-up from Chelsea.

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting".

Where, and how, to watch the solar eclipse
A total solar eclipse is a rare educational experience that doesn't cost anything, and that kids won't likely soon forget. Teachers are getting ready to safely view the eclipse with pinhole viewers and glasses made to view the eclipse.

Stopping short of a guarantee, Mourinho believes an encouraging pre-season and success in the Europa League last season can propel his side to further success. "They need to get in another two or three players, I think, to have a chance of retaining that title".

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez returns to the Premier League after spells in Spain and Germany.

"So whatever happens at the start of the season - and of course I hope we get off to a flier - we must stay calm and remember that it's where we are in the table after 38 games that matters, not the first few. If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know".

"But I wish him all the best for the rest of the season".

However, Mourinho has lost a number of key players to long-term injury, including defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, and wing-back Ashley Young.

Rogers Cup: Rafael Nadal beaten, Roger Federer through in Montreal
Shapovalov had just three wins this season coming into the tournament. "He played well", Nadal said. "I wish him the best. Haase will face the victor between second-seeded Roger Federer and Roberto Bautista Agut in the semifinals on Saturday.

"We have had a better pre-season than a year ago and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

Having not finished below third in the Premier League during the Scot's reign, remarkably they have not finished higher than fourth since his retirement. The top seven, we are all in Europe.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is probably favourite to start ahead of Juan Mata and Anthony Martial so he should support Romelu Lukaku with the Belgian worldwide set to make his league debut following his big-money move from Everton this summer.

"It's not urgent, not desperate to have it done or not done", said Mourinho.

It represents a significant change for West Ham, who have looked overseas for many of their signings in recent years, with successes like Dimitri Payet offset by a number of failures in the window.

But one moment in particular tickled plenty on social media. One player's not going to change that'. They have been for a long time'.
