Mourinho predicts seven-way fight for Premier League title

13 August 2017

West Ham United will be kept waiting before they kick off their Premier League campaign, with their televised clash with Manchester United taking place on Sunday (kick-off 4pm). On top of that, he is infinitely more mobile than the Swede, and in theory should allow the team to play in a faster and more expansive style.

"There are some transfers that have gone ahead so far that are so above our levels you nearly have to disregard them". Like with any eventual champion, we'll need some luck with injuries to key players, and maybe an unexpected meltdown or two at some of the other challengers (E.g., Conte trying to fight one of his players during a game, Guardiola getting busted for systematic blood do-.nevermind). "If the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play".

It is too early to say who has got the best of the most frenetic transfer market, but few of the buys come with the proven record that Zlatan Ibrahimoivic brought to United last summer.

Lukaku isn't the only player being reunited Mourinho, who also convinced former club Chelsea to sell Nemanja Matic to United. "I am very happy with Chelsea, but we don't know the future".

As the Premier League season gets under way, we're profiling each area of Manchester United's first-team squad as it stands. I don't think I am going to win because I always win in the second season - not at all.

Pogba had a great season a year ago and his lack of goals and assists shouldn't distract people from his overall play; I expect him to easily double his goal-and-assist tally. "At Porto that meant winning the Champions League, likewise at Inter. I have better conditions to deliver a better season than my first one".

Wozniacki routinely dispatched resurgent American Sloane Stephens , 6-2, 6-3, to book her spot on the Rogers Cup final in Toronto. Defending champion Simona Halep takes on Ukraine's Elena Svitolina in the second semi-final later on Saturday.

United have a very good squad and are one of the favourites to win the Premier League this season, and it is hard to see them drop all three points at Old Trafford on the opening weekend of the season.

"I think Manchester City be right up there challenging for the title", said Hughton. Leicester City was 12th a year ago after shocking the world by winning the title the previous season, and the squad is listed as a +550 dog with the draw at +350.

"Danilo is 26, Benjamin Mendy is 23, Bernardo Silva is 22, Ederson is 23, so we bought players who are going to be stable for the next years".

The way Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho have been spending, the Premier League trophy should be returning to Manchester in May.

Has Mourinho got United ready?

United have been on Ivan Perisic's tail for a majority of this summer, but recent reports suggest that Jose has now turned his focus on to signing a decent left-back.

"We have had a better pre-season than past year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".
