Player to watch: Pote, the attacking midfielder burst on the scene last season and was the key piece in Sporting's title run in almost twenty years. If Sporting are to repeat Pote will be the central figure of it all. 


Outlook: Sporting have been quiet on the transfer front and will need to add a few pieces to the squad with a busier schedule this season adding Champions League play into it. Their chance to repeat as league champions will be a more difficult task this season but they will be competitive in their fight.
