managers' makeover!

WAR OF WORDS! Their rivalry has always been pretty friendly, with Guardiola even speaking to Klopp straight after the 2019 Champo League final to congratulate him!

He can quickly shift his feet to avoid tackles and get away from defenders, and then uses his pace to leave them for dead! LEGENDARY LINK-UP! He formed a deadly partnership with his Lille strike partners last season – he set up five goals for Jonathan Bamba and scored another five thanks to Jonathan Ikone!

STAR SIGNING MATEO KOVACIC Who else The ex-Real Madrid midfielder was Chelsea’s only signing of the summer – and they could only land him because he was still registered at the club from last season’s loan deal. He'll be a good squad player! STRONGEST LINE-UP ALL SIGNINGS Mateo Kovacic, Real Madrid £40 million Losing superstar forward Eden Hazard was obviously a massive blow, but tying down wonderkid winger Callum Hudson-Odoi was almost just as huge of a boost! 19 CRYSTAL PALACE The summer didn’t start well for Palace after losing promising RB Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Man.…
