Aguero thinks that Mikel Arteta has taken time to build a strong team at Arsenal and thus, should be considered on the same wavelength as Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Football London reports that Aguero is confident of Arsenal's chances given the transfer window they had. Arteta has managed to strengthen key positions and everyone will be particularly be interested in Aguero's former teammate Gabriel Jesus after taking preseason games by storm.

Everything will be very even, as it has been happening, but we will have to be attentive to Arsenal's performance, which has put together a great project with the help of Arteta and I think that this year they will give people something to talk about.

The all-time Manchester City top-scorer is at the same time not fancied by Spurs' chances of finishing in the top-four, let alone challenge for the Premier League title. Spurs, under Conte, look like a formidable team.

Sergio Aguero warns that Erling Haaland will take time to adapt to the Premier League

At the same time, Sports Brief reported that Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has warned that the club's new striker Erling Haaland will take time to get going in the English Premier League.

Haaland was below his expected best when he made his competitive debut for the club against Liverpool in the Community Shield. The Norwegian striker was guilty of missing a chance with a gaping goal in front of him.

His Liverpool counterpart Darwin Nunez came off the bench to win the game for the Reds. Haaland found it hard to fare against Virgil Van Dijk, one of the best centre-backs in the game.
