  1. De Bruyne named PFA Player of the Year

    Manchester City

    Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne won the Professional Footballers' Association men's Players' Player of the Year award.

    De Bruyne, 29, praised City manager Pep Guardiola for helping him earn the honour, saying "he just lets me be me".

    De Bruyne beat last year's winner Virgil van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold, Sadio Mane, Henderson and City team-mate Raheem Sterling to the award voted for by his fellow players.

    The Belgian is the first Manchester City player to win the award since its inception at the end of the 1973-74 season.

    You need a Kalidou Koulibaly, someone with presence, to step in and replace Vincent Kompany.

    Everyone is looking for that centre-half, even Manchester United.

    Manchester City make too many mistakes.

  4. 'I believe City will win the title'

    Micah Richards

    Former Man City defender on BBC Five Live

    I can't say Manchester City are going to win the title... I believe they will win the league because of the strength in depth in the squad.

    I think David Silva was massive for Manchester City, bit we have to give credit to Liverpool. Look at the points gap they had last season. It is not going to be easy.

    I believe City should be winning the title with their squad though.

    Manchester City start the new season without the magician David Silva, who has moved on to Real Sociedad after 10 years at the club.

    Will Phil Foden be able to step up and fill the Spaniard's boots?

    If Liverpool are worried about playing Leeds on the opening day as champions, they shouldn't be champions.

  11. 'Everyone else will raise their game'

    Karen Carney

    Former England and Chelsea winger on BBC Radio Five Live

    Everyone else will raise their game. Don't have the mentality of defending it, go and win it again.

    They have had a target on their backs the last couple of years. Will not having the fans at Anfield affect them?

    Jurgen Klopp has to find a way of getting a squad going again, which hasnt really been freshened up.

  13. 'Winning the Premier League is one of the hardest things to do'

    Micah Richards

    Former Man City defender on BBC Five Live

    Winning the Premier League is one of the hardest things to do. Sometimes after a winning season, you are really tired because it takes so much out of you.

    I was quite cocky when I won the Premier League. I thought I would have five or six titles, but it never ends that way.

    Liverpool are in great shape but if they have injuries - I mean the fantastic three up front - they will find it difficult.

    It is uncertain times for everyone, a difficult time.

    Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp suggesting Liverpool may not be going big on signings again this summer.

    Are Reds fans fine with that? Is there a possibility of complacency from those players who have enjoyed so much success with the club in recent years? Does it need freshening up?

  16. 'We are completely focussed on this season'

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    More from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "Clubs are in different situations and we are living in uncertainty in the world. For some clubs it seems to be less important how uncertain the future is because they are owned by countries, owned by oligarchs and that is the truth. We are a different kind of club. We reached the Champions League final two years ago, won it the following year and won the Premier League by being the club we are, we cannot change that overnight and say 'now we want to behave like Chelsea'.

    "We always want to improve the squad but there are different way - one way is to sign new players and the other way is to work together, improve the things you were good in and try to nullify the things you are not good in. That is football. No-one wants to talk about training and only about signings.

    "Naby Keita had his most consistent player after lockdown because he did not have injuries and was a really important part of this period. I don't want to put pressure on Curtis Jones but he looked very promising in the games he players. I was always clear that Takumi Minamino needs time and he looks completely different.

    "The distance between us and other teams we did not think about but we were happy because it meant we were champions seven matches before the end of the season. The points tally had nothing to do with how much better we were than the other teams. We are completely focussed on this season and how we play against Leeds United."

  18. 'We have to be ready for tough start'

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp tells BBC Radio 5 Live: "It was a short summer and pre-season is important and so far is has been all good. A few players are still on international duty so hopefully they come back healthy. The games are coming thick and fast and we have to be ready for them.

    "There is not too much change and people say 'everybody wants to beat us now because we are champions' but I did not see a team last year who did not want to beat us with all they had. We won the Champions League the year before so everybody wanted to beat us then. It is about us and to prove that we have to be ready for a fight in each game.

    "We have a tough start against Leeds United, who have waited 16 years to get back into the top-flight. They have a world-class manager and it is a historical game so it will be very, very tough. Then we go to Chelsea, then Arsenal is coming so it is a tough start.

    "I have been at Liverpool for nearly five years and if something is going to happen it will happen. There are so many rumours in the newspapers and it is funny when we read our name. We were quite good with this in the past by staying calm and we made the right decisions, whether that be keeping the same group or bringing someone in for a specific position."
