Premier League preview: Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle, Norwich

Brendan Rodgers has an interesting challenge ahead of him at Liverpool.

He takes over from Kenny Dalglish, who won a cup but finished eighth in the league last season. Another eighth place finish would be disastrous.

Premier League preview: Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Everton, Fulham

Arsenal have had a better pre-season than last time around but then that is hardly saying much.

Particularly when Robin van Persie is angling for a move, having just finished the top scorer for Arsene Wenger's team last season.

Former Wales forward John Hartson shares his memories of Gary Speed on ITV4. He said: "I first met Gary Speed when I was 11 years old when I was on trial with Leeds. He heard that there were a few Welsh lads on trial and he came over and said 'hello'.

"I then made my Wales debut at 19 and he looked after me and made sure that I settled in well. He was a great fella and it's such a sad loss. A waste. It's devastating and I really can't believe it."
