Man City and Liverpool resume where they left off

So the premier league session is back up and running as it is almost as if we never left.

Despite a relatively quiet transfer window for Liverpool and (to a lesser extent Manchester City, last seasons top two resumed the new season where they left off last term.

Early indications are that it is going to be a long season for the chasing pack. I don't think City or Liverpool are anywhere close to firing on full cylinders.

With the African Cup of Nations and the South American, Copa America taking place over summer, both teams have key players lacking match fitness.

The best time to catch Liverpool or City is now. The early signs are that, despite new acquisitions, their titles rivals will struggle. I don't see any other team mounting a serious challenge.

I hope for a season with twists and turns however I suspect that we'll have a season where every point these two drops will be looked at as a seismic event. Such is the standard they have set.

Liverpool were 4-0 up at half time against Premier League newcomers Norwich. City hammered West Ham 5-0 away from home. We could easily be in for another record-breaking season this year with the title being decided on one or two critical moments. Let's hope that VAR doesn't end up deciding the Premier League title destination!

VAR is to stop referees looking stupid or being criticised about most of the crucial decisions on MOTD or $ky. VAR is an officials-protecting system. It has nothing to do with getting all decisions right for managers, players or fans.

Just as the EFL after-match video reviews and retrospective ban for fooling refs into giving incorrect red cards or cheating refs into giving incorrect penalties was all about stopping referees being made to look fools on the pitch.

VAR did it’s best to ruin some moments on weekend one of the season! I think you are spot on - two horse race, be interesting to see de Bruyne back in full fitness and whether he gives them an extra 5%!

They started showing that once you find a winning team you are not supposed to change many things and it will keep working... In my opinion, this will be another year of complete domination of the English clubs.

VAR in the Premier League is something that I wished for 2 years, so they can show other countries how it is perfectly usable and can be a game changer.
Considering the point difference last year, I can see VAR being a decisive technology...

I call that team weapon of mass destruction ,from my own point of view ,even the benchers will still win matches ,Pep is good and has made that club to be strong .without var that match would have ended 6:0 but due to the var it was cancelled and I believe this season will be a season of history .

Congratulations @nanzo-scoop!
