SEASON PREVIEW

The French Ligue 1 title race looks set to be a two-horse race again. Champions Monaco may have lost a trio of stars Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Benjamin Mendy to EPL opposition, but they have kept their most prized asset Kylian Mbappe. Flying wingback Tererence Kongolo is a quality signing from Feyenoord and should be able to fill in admirably for Mendy. PSG lost their crown last season and are desperate to make amends. They have made a statement signing in Neymar, and added on former Barcelona colleague Dani Alves for good measure. Then, you get the sense that they are actually trying to conquer Europe! A good start from the Parisians will be vital as that was where they relinquished the crown last term. Lyon may have sold Alexandre Lacazette, their main source of goals for the past three seasons, but they can still rely on Nabil Fekir. The 23-year-old was sublime in 2015 and Lyon could go places should he regain that form. The signing of speed demon Bertrand Traore - who impressed greatly at Ajax last season - is immensely useful too.
