Goals from Sergi Canos and Christian Nordgaard made it a dream Premier League debut for the Bees against a woeful Arsenal.

Countdown to start of Premier League and transfer

I was not in the least bit surprised Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola refused to talk about Harry Kane today.

Guardiola got his message out loud and clear last week - he wants Kane (Kane wants to go to City but that is a different matter) and has made it public to increase the scrutiny on Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

There is no value in repeating the same words every week. In fact it would probably be counter-productive because it would start to wind Levy up.

So now Pep will be quiet.

I would be very surprised if City do not renew their interest after this weekend's game between the clubs and equally shocked if the transfer is not completed before the transfer window closes on 31 August.
