Reunited and it feels so good. It’s all moonlight and roses for Manchester United at the moment.
Cristiano Ronaldo made a sensational return to his former Old Trafford stomping ground last week and the feel-good factor is off the charts.
And after becoming the top international goalscorer of all-time this week too, there really can’t be a downside to CR7 back in a United shirt.
But it turns out that there could be.
With all the excitement and optimism it brings, fans’ belief that they are now contenders for major trophies means those expectations must be met.
Add the addition of Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho to the mix and the wait since the 2017 Europa League trophy must come to an end.
Talk of Ronaldo being a noose around Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s neck won’t worry fans who want him out him anyway.
But it’s not just Ole who this affects with title race implications.
So now with the transfer window closed, let’s see how this affects the rest of the big dogs.
Having walked away from talks to sign Ronaldo, Manchester City still look short of a proven goalscorer to lead the line after also missing out on Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
With Kane dropped for the embarrassing opening-day loss to Spurs, City put five past Norwich and Arsenal.
City boss Pep Guardiola and his squad will be confident that having won the title without a 20-plus goalscorer that last season, they can do it again.
But that game against Spurs leaves the nagging question if they will have the firepower against their title rivals, with Pep’s manne the only title contender with a loss to their name so far this season.
Chelsea made a big statement at Anfield last weekend when they showed just how tough they will be to beat even with 10 men.
With Romelu Lukaku leading the line, Thomas Tuchel has a bulldozer of a striker.
Once he hits form, and brings the Blues’ other threats into the game, they could be unstoppable.
Plus the loan arrival of Spain midfielder Saul Niguez could be another big plus for the European champions.
Tuchel just needs to keep all his big-name stars onside or he’ll suffer the same fate as at PSG.
If you think those bosses are ruthless, you don’t know Roman Abramovich.
Liverpool look like a force again with their defence looking solid once more.
Defender Ibrahima Konate was Jurgen Klopp’s only big-name addition to the squad and Reds fans are freaking out that they don’t have enough quality to compete.
I think Klopp is smart enough to know that his high-energy, heavy-metal style can’t be sustained all season.
That’s why you’ll see more of Thiago Alcantara pulling the strings through the middle this season and bursts from midfield runners.
The crosses from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson won’t help against massed defences.
