Chelsea are the defending champions of the Premier League which gets underway on Friday night
"I believe he can do well in the Premier League", Clement said. More of the same is required to maintain the league's reputation as the most competitive in the world.
Desperate to dethrone championsChelsea, club record fees have been paid by Manchester United, who splurged a British record £75 million for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, Arsenal, who forked out £52 million on Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette and Liverpool, who put down £37 million for Roma winger Mohamed Salah.
All four are backing Manchester City for the title and expect Arsenal to miss out on the top four again, while Huddersfield and Brighton are given little hope of surviving.
Matteo Darmian is likely to start ahead of Daley Blind at left-back, and Antonio Valencia should captain the side at right-back after Timothy Fosu-Mensah was loaned out to Crystal Palace.

'Of course to buy lots of good players is important and better squads are better equipped to win the title.

The Premier League is undoubtedly more competitive than most other top-flight football leagues.
Tottenhammanager Mauricio Pochettino has assembled a side capable of holding their own against anyone, but for two years in a row they have fallen short in the title race.
If Tottenham were playing at White Hart Lane I'd have them as champions. I just think the competition can be better than ever'.
The Premier League kicks off a new season tonight with millionaire players entertaining the more modestly paid fans packed into stadiums and on TVs. A three-time EPL champ, Arsenal finished fifth last season and is a -188 favorite here.
Brighton and Hove Albion - Although in my bottom three, I see this as a great opportunity for Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan as he's going to be very busy.
Victory in both the EFL Cup and Europa League were a sign that the Red Devils have taken a positive step back to becoming one of the top teams in European football.
