Man Utd: Expect a title challenge from Mourinho's men

Man Utd: Expect a title challenge from Mourinho's men

Morata works well with Pedro and Hazard as the team makes a deep Champions League run and does just enough to fight off the Manchester sides for another title. The only clues provided on Wednesday night was the silhouette of the mystery man and some choice quotes from the piece revealing that the player would be prepared to leave the club, feels the club needs to buy more "world-class players" and, perhaps unsurprisingly, he'd like to win some trophies.

The Red Devils haven't been quite as busy as some of their Premier League rivals in terms of recruitment this summer, but have still managed to secure the signings of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic - spending over £100m in the process.

"I don't say I know the league better because I have been in this league for a long time".

In search of goals, Manchester United turned to last season's second-highest scorer.

"But I think naturally a manager in the second season knows the club and players better".

"United will appreciate the return to the Premier League after facing an outstanding Real Madrid side in the European Super Cup earlier in the week", Owen wrote on Betvictor.com. "I have better conditions to deliver a better season than my first one". "And, in some ways, I'm glad it's not the Premier League holding that particular record".

"Some people have said that they can't believe Chelsea let Matic go to United, and that they've handed them the title, but I don't see that", Ince told Paddy Power.




Arsenal's other newcomer, 24-year-old Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac, cost nothing after seeing out his contract at Schalke, where he was voted into the Bundeliga team of the season in 2016-17.

"This time we're all in the same basket and it's going to be the same for everybody".

"Okay, some will have the luck to play Tuesday or Wednesday, or Saturday or Sunday, but in the end, the number of matches will be the same for everybody".

The midfielder scored the goal at Wembley that took Hull City into English football's top flight.

Swansea's purchase of Roque Mesa for £11 million looks a bargain for a player whose slick passing stood out for Las Palmas last season. On the domestic front, the results were mixed as United claimed the League Cup defeating Southampton in an enthralling final before falling to Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic said: "It's not ideal playing there first game of the season, but on the other hand, it is brilliant and one of the greatest away games in the league".

Crespo made his prediction in a social media video for the Big Call series, produced with bookmaker BetStars in which sports stars including former footballers Wayne Bridge, Emile Heskey, Sol Campbell and seven-time World Snooker Champion Stephen Hendry offers their thoughts on major events.
