Winners and losers from the EPL transfer window

Winners and losers from the EPL transfer window

Neville, who was speaking at Cadbury's Premier League launch in Dublin, outlined how he felt that the vigorous Champions League and Premier League schedule of playing "Saturday then Wednesday" does not suit the "100mph" way that Liverpool play. We asked him directly: Premier League or Champions League?

As for the main challengers, Neville lists United, Liverpool and Chelsea are the only potential rivals for City's crown.

"They seem so intent and we spoke to Kompany and Walker, they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved a year ago".

Granted, they did well to keep defender Toby Alderweireld at the club after interest from Manchester United but if you're a Spurs fan, you must be struggling to find any sort of optimism going into the new campaign.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group [of World Cup players] because everybody is different physically and mentally to see how they feel, how they are and to understand if they think how they can help or not help". "When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second, because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners".

'In fact I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that by May the title will be back on Merseyside for the first time in 29 years'. I do think they have one over on City.

He was also, however, firm in his stance that his old club Manchester United "should be challenging" regardless of their inability to add a top quality centre back to their side during the transfer window.

Both clubs finished below United last season in the Premier League yet Mourinho claims they are projected as "serial winners" despite failing to land a trophy since 2012 and 2008 respectively.

"I focus on the players I have for the first couple of matches".

"United should be challenging", insisted Neville.

Manchester United have a front six of Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial and Sanchez. Obscene. In midfield, they've got Matic, Fred and Pogba.
