Former English premier league legend and former Newcastle United goal poacher, Alan Shearer has tipped Manchester United to win the campaign which opens on Friday, August 11, 2017.
Although Shearer feels that Manchester City would do well after having spent big in the ongoing summer transfer, he felt the team does not have the depth to make them champions yet.
“I am expecting a lot of transfer activity from last season’s top six before the window shuts at the end of August but, as things stand now, I would say the title is between the Manchester clubs.
“Manchester City hired Pep Guardiola to win the Champions League and the Premier League and, despite spending a lot of money, his first year in England was a big disappointment.
“Guardiola has spent a fortune on full-backs and a new goalkeeper to try to rectify some of the defensive issues City had in the first trophyless campaign of his managerial career and, if he fails again, there are no more excuses for him.
“I think City will be there or thereabouts but, at the moment, I would go with Manchester United – just – to be champions.”
