Ander Herrera believes that Manchester City's summer spending makes them Premier League favourites.

Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero is worthy of his place in Manchester City history, even if he continues to be ignored when it comes to individual honours. Bruno Martins Indi is the only fit Stoke City defender available for the encounter while Kurt Zouma who is on loan from Chelsea is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Not only has he never won any of the English game's player of the year awards, he has also not been named in the Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Year once.

However, Coates doesn't see it as a problem because teams can not be forced into selling their players.

Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal were always hoping to win the title, but have not really showed why they should be put in the highest echelon of the league. I respect Gareth Barry for playing 600 games in the Premier League, I congratulate him.

Manchester City are more of a team with South American flair about them.

Frank de Boer paid the price for overseeing defeats in the opening four league games and successor Roy Hodgson failed to break that run in his first game in charge against Southampton last weekend. Through five matches this season, only three clubs have more than 10 points: Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

City host Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday before travelling to Chelsea for a league game the following Saturday. "I love golf!" the Spaniard said when asked about the prospect of coaching on into his 70s.

The Old Trafford side has announced that it generated over $787 million during last season, after signing the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"We tried to convince him to be involved in the way we want to play, to be not just like a striker heading the ball in the box and scoring a goal". Over the past week, which has seen City score 15 and concede 0 in three games against Liverpool, Feyenoord and Watford, the pair have been strong, allowing City's opponents a total of five shots on target.

Luiz lost his discipline against Arsenal and as he has so often done in the past but the great achievement for Conte last season was to somehow contain his wilder side within a defensive set-up which won them the title while rivals leaked goals.

Changes have, however, been made to a winning formula, with Matic's sale to Manchester United and Diego Costa's departure for Atletico Madrid among the tough decisions to have been taken.

"I don't know the whole circumstances, but from a football fans' point of view I think he's a loss to the Premier League", said Hughes.
