Player to watch
Bobby Zamora. A full international now, can he take confidence from his Wembley appearance and finally fulfil his promise?
New signing Philippe Senderos is already out for some months – which makes it imperative to keep Brede Hangeland.
Mark Hughes. Something to prove, especially to Manchester City, and capable of doing it in a saner environment. Will benefit from lower expectations and profile.
Story of the summer
Woy’s Boys are no more. Following Hodgson’s departure, the silver-haired Hughes is in, much to chairman Mohamed al-Fayed’s delight.
Last season 12th
Suffered from impressive run to Europa League final.
This season 9th
Without European distraction, can regain League ground.
