Taking advantage of astronomical broadcast contracts and lucrative sponsorship deals, England's superpowers have been splashing the cash at an unprecedented rate.

Mee was the lesser heralded, certainly outside town, of his centre back pairing with Michael Keane last season, but after Keane's departure, he will be the main man: "We were a duo but I felt the responsibility a year ago as well, I was the more senior player of us two".

Games involving the Cherries witnessed 122 goals during the last campaign, that's an average of 3.21 per match and no club in the Premier League were involved in more.

Romelu Lukaku might have joined Chelsea but ended up at Manchester United for 75 million pounds ($99.18 million), a move that pushed Jose Mourinho's alternative targets Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata towards Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.

Chelsea have spent big again in the summer transfer market, but Sutton believes a failure to meet the demands of a much sought-after boss could lead to an acrimonious parting of ways.

"There can be no excuses now, this is his second season and he has to produce it now".

A frustrated Antonio Conte has admitted that Chelsea do not deserve to be among the favourites for the Premier League title as things stand, despite coming into the season as reigning champions.

Fans will get their first glimpse of how one of the contenders will fare when Arsenal, fresh from their Community Shield victory over Chelsea, face Leicester in the season opener at the Emirates Stadium. "He's looking for a space and he's been waiting last season to get his chance and he had a few games at the end last season and he'll be wanting more". He's available, can we get him?' I think Chelsea more often than not have backed their managers and brought in the players needed. I am used to this pressure but the young players, they are not used to it.

"A lot of the trouble was created by my own situation".

"Overall I believe that it's down to us". He'll come into the team and do well if need be.

The bulk of the opening weekend's fixtures will be played on Saturday and Sunday, with Chelsea starting at home to Burnley.

Manchester City also begins the season on the road, though as a big favorite at -325 facing Brighton and Hove Albion.
