EPL 2016-17: The 5 biggest questions that need to be answered
The 2016-17 English Premier League is still over a month away but the football transfer madness is already underway with Zlatan signing for Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United being the biggest one so far. The new managers are also rolling in as Antonio Conte recently held his first press conference as Chelsea boss, following Mourinho and Guardiola’s pressers. All these development have thrown up a lot of questions.
Let’s take a look at a few burning questions which are right in front of the fans before the start of the season.
Who will win the Guardiola vs. Mourinho war:
It doesn’t get any bigger than this. Pep Guardiola vs. Jose Mourinho, Manchester United vs. Manchester City. The premier league preseason has barely begun but the battle lines have already been drawn. United have gone all guns blazing in the transfer market and have recruited Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Eric Bailey so far.
City aren’t far behind either with Guardiola adding the German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and Spanish winger Nolito to the squad. Further, additions are expected in the coming weeks for both teams. With both manager ready to spend heavily in the transfer window one can expect a blockbuster of a contest between the two sides for the Premier League Trophy.
Mourinho has already indicated that he isn’t going to change his aggressive attitude or cut down on his brash press talks. All of which points to a forthcoming heated war of words between the two managers. It is going to be interesting to see whose tactical superiority comes up on top.
