Liverpool are Man City’s bogey team, says Kyle Walker

Tottenham's Kyle Walker scored an own goal at Old Trafford in 2015

City broke a number of records in 2017/18, with their Premier League points tally hitting the 100 mark in what was an unprecedented achievement. Many are tipping Liverpool to be their closest challengers this season, after a a £123.6m spending spree this summer.

It promises to be an exciting final 24 hours of the summer transfer window as Premier League clubs look to make some late signings ahead of the 5pm deadline on Thursday.

"Liverpool are strong", Walker said.

The 24-year-old England global, who helped City win the Premier League title last term after joining from Everton in 2016, is nominally a centre-back.

But his skills behind the wheel might need a bit more honing before his Anfield team-mates allow him to drive them forward off the pitch as well as on it.

Chinese Exports Accelerate As US Prepares New Tariffs In Heated Row
Beijing is expected to hit $16 billion worth of USA goods with equal tariffs in response to Tuesday's move. The plan will impose a 25 percent tax on an additional $16 billion in Chinese goods starting August 23.

Jose Mourinho has spent much of the off-season moaning about Manchester United's squad and the lack of new faces, but there is still plenty of talent available to the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss. You've got Chelsea, Tottenham, so it's going to be a tough season, but we're really up for the challenge and we want to go and prove that we are the best team in the league. "It's up to us to achieve them dreams".

The Portuguese wants two more deals to be wrapped up before tomorrow's deadline, but only expects one to go through.

City have been quiet in the transfer market, adding just Riyad Mahrez from Leicester, but their attacking potency and ability to dominate possession should be even stronger with the addition of the Algerian. Another target, Fred, joined Manchester United.

But City's strength in depth is clear for all to see.

The promoted clubs have been spending big, with Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers particularly active in the market as they look to solidify their return to the top flight.
