Manchester City announce new Gabriel Jesus contract with brilliant video

Manchester City have launched the 2018/19 away kit! No use with unauthorized audio, video, data, fixture lists, club/league logos or "live" services. Given Mahrez's competitor on the other side, Jorginho, is not known for his goalscoring, the Algerian appears the better bet to get on the scoresheet.

He started every game as Brazil reached this summer's World Cup quarter-finals, where they lost to Belgium.

But whatever the line-ups, there are plenty of talking points and the game will be closely watched for clues as domestic football reclaims centre stage just three weeks after the World Cup final in Russian Federation.

Will new manager Maurizio Sarri be able to revive FA Cup winners Chelsea, who finished fifth last season after winning the title the previous year under Antonio Conte? He build on that last season, racking up twenty goals while sharing the responsibility of leading the line with Sergio Agüero, playing alongside the Argentine only on occasion. "From Monday we will be back all together and think about what we have to do to keep last season's level".

He could become the first Premier League manager since David Moyes in 2013 in the same competition to win a trophy in his first game.

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri swooped in at the last minute to bring Jorginho to Stamford Bridge from Napoli.

"I am happy that he is here in the Premier League", Guardiola said. The Italian coach only arrived at the club three weeks ago, yet judging from the Blues' pre-season performances, it seems the players at his disposal have taken his footballing philosophy to heart.

"The way he plays, I think will be ideal for English football".

"Always Chelsea is a big rival. The style of play will be ideal for English football". Brian McClair, who played for United from 1987 to 1998, told BBC World Service Sport: "You should, at some point, look as though you are enjoying it. Jose maybe enjoys himself internally but from a football point of view, the Manchester United fans would very much welcome to see him smiling and laughing at appropriate times".
