talking points.

Pep Guardiola’s team do not appear to need much help, having dominated the Premier League as they did last season. However, facing the league’s newest six teams in their first eight games will have their title rivals wincing. Although they start at Arsenal and have a trip to Liverpool in October, in between Guardiola’s men face Huddersfield, Wolves, Newcastle, Fulham, Cardiff and Brighton.
