Alan Shearer: "Going into a Premier League season without Sir Alex Ferguson is strange in itself.
"But Moyes is going in there for the first time and that brings its own pressures.
"You look at Manchester City and Pellegrini hasn't won any trophies. When you look at Arsenal, can you say they are anywhere near winning trophies? I don't think so.
"And Chelsea? Mourinho has been there and done it and, at this stage, that could be the difference."
