Premier League 2017-18 season sees two Manchester clubs as favorites

Premier League 2017-18 season sees two Manchester clubs as favorites

During his news conference ahead of the Premier League season opener on Friday, Jose Mourinho said that he will not "cry" or "moan" if he does not end up obtaining that fourth and final player between now and August 31.

"Do I have to be more of a leader?"

Manchester United begins its league campaign on Sunday, hosting West Ham. Perhaps we've got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. He cleaned up his act last season, and was a joy to watch.

"I think Lukaku is going to do well at United, he's given them a different dimension, but you can't look past Harry Kane".

Jose Mourinho believes Nemanja Matic is ideal for Manchester United
The above Trinity predicting a struggle for the last ticket to the Champions League. I want to play West Ham - a hard match - then go to Swansea for another hard match.

The Red Devils collected three pieces of silverware last season, with Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League triumphs the undoubted highlights of Jose Mourinho's first campaign at the helm.

Mourinho has spent £147 million to bring Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Lindelof to Old Trafford. "Old Trafford is waiting for us and I think Old Trafford has a reason to be behind us".

They have weakened their own team and strengthened Manchester United, who now have a better chance of winning the Premier League than Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola believes that top clubs are forced to pay over the odds for quality players but says the premium is even greater when dealing with Premier League clubs.

Arsenal without Sanchez for season opener
Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to finish outside the Champions League qualifying spots. The north London side have signed Lacazette to complement Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez and attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil .

Arguably the best goalie in the Premier League and in the world, it is easy to see why the Manchester United player is the most picked player in his position. If you think about Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho - it is a very good championship now.

His priority has been to sign a defender, a midfielder, a winger, and a striker, and with just 20 days of the transfer window left to go, all he needs now is someone who can operate on the flanks. I'm going to be courageous and say the game will finish 4-0.

That is a big change from a year ago, when United played only five pre-season matches after a friendly against Manchester City in Beijing was called off.

Lukaku is expected to score loads of goals, while Pogba will have to be much better if he is to vindicate himself from the £89m tag. Chelsea are in big trouble if big-signing Alvaro Morata does not adapt to English football, so expect Arsenal to pip them, Everton and Liverpool for fourth place.

US President Donald Trump said Friday that the US military was "locked and loaded" to deal with the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.
