Hazard asks to delay return to Chelsea

Hazard asks to delay return to Chelsea

But whatever the line-ups, there are plenty of talking points and the game will be closely watched for clues as domestic football reclaims centre stage just three weeks after the World Cup final in Russian Federation.

Sergio Aguero slots into the striking position with little threat after yet another stunning season last term which returned 30 goals across all competitions, where he will no doubt pick up from where he left off as the 2018/19 campaign kicks-off.

Obviously, Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne won't feature in this one, but Pep Guardiola will still be able to field a fairly strong team in this one. "I'm very happy. I think David will be very important for the team, to support me", Sarri said.

"The last Premier League table told me City 100, Chelsea 70 points", Sarri said.

Alisson Set to Make Liverpool FC Debut on Saturday vs Napoli
In Liverpool's penultimate preseason friendly, Alisson will face a side from the league that he just came from in Napoli . Firmino isn't the only one to return to Liverpool training this week, as Trent Alexander-Arnold also joined the squad.

The City manager also revealed how much he was looking forward to locking horns with Sarri, who replaced Conte last month. He doesn't have an English work permit yet so can't be signed up with the Premier League. He's trying to help us every single day, double sessions, to learn quickly his philosophy. The Italian coach only arrived at the club three weeks ago, yet judging from the Blues' pre-season performances, it seems the players at his disposal have taken his footballing philosophy to heart.

"I think it will be a good game, always Chelsea is a big rival".

"The way he plays I think will be flawless for English football". Both managers have the utmost respect for each-other and neither side will be going hell for leather for victory.

Speaking at a press conference the 59-year-old master tactician was asked about Courtois and if he will remain at the club, to which he replied, "Courtois?"

Remains from North Korea 'consistent with being Americans': U.S. scientist
Experts say positively identifying the decades-old remains could take anywhere from days to decades. Both McKeague and Byrd expressed hope that North Korea would allow the resumption of joint U.S.

Instead, they will have face-to-face talks over the next few days, with Sarri hopeful of keeping his talisman.

"I want to win, because it's very important to have a trophy immediately".

That's because many are just getting back from/still yet to return from their post World Cup holidays, and aren't integrated into the new season's team/totally 90 minutes match fit right now.

Sarri did not say if permission had been granted, but he has made it clear that he is keen to keep the likes of Hazard and Willian at Stamford Bridge despite speculation over their futures.
