City Out to Dominate Again

Neutrals will be hopeful the Premier League title race is a little more competitive in the upcoming campaign, although City will fancy their chances of bossing the top flight for a second season in a row.

In 2017-18, Guardiola's men played some spellbinding football on their way to silverware, putting together an 18-game winning run. The champions finished the season with 100 points and scored 106 times in their 38 games.

Here's a breakdown of their phenomenal campaign:

While there isn't too much room for improvement in terms of a potential points haul for City, they will feel as though they can get better again.

After all, so many star members of their squad, the likes of Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus, are still early in their careers. Veterans such as David Silva, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero still have a lot to offer, while Kevin De Bruyne is approaching his peak.

It's tough to see where a challenge comes from, but United were in closest proximity to their local rivals in the table last season. As James Robson of the Manchester Evening News noted, there's still a lot of ground for them to make up:

After their run to the final of the UEFA Champions League last season, some are expecting Liverpool to put together a Premier League title challenge.

While they lost the final in Kiev against Real Madrid, the Reds have made undeniable strides under Jurgen Klopp and already have Naby Keita and Fabinho's signings confirmed. Football writer Sam McGuire is excited to see the former link up with some of Liverpool's attacking stars:

The most excitement ahead of the new season may be at the Emirates Stadium, though, as a new era begins under Emery.

Arsene Wenger will not be in the Arsenal dugout on the opening day of the season for the first time since 1997 after departing at the end of the previous campaign. Emery has some big shoes to fill, having been appointed as his successor.

Elsewhere in north London, Tottenham are set begin life at a new home after playing the campaign just gone at Wembley Stadium. Mauricio Pochettino, having recently signed a new long-term contract with the club, will want to see the exciting side he's built finally put something in the Spurs trophy cabinet.
