The Premier league tis likely to be top of their agenda and with a four point lead they remain as the team to beat and the current favourites. Can Salah go on and win the Golden boot again? He currently sits third with 13 goals and seven assists.
Manchester City on the other hand came into the current campaign as the strong favourites to follow up their remarkable winning season last year.
