Hernan Crespo Tips Manchester United To Win Premier League

Hernan Crespo Tips Manchester United To Win Premier League”

United switched between a 3-5-2 and a 4-3-3 during their 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup final on Tuesday, with the Portuguese admitting in his post-match comments that he wants his players to be able to execute the formation during certain games in the Premier League next season. He's made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.

Despite having only played 45 minutes for the club in last week's friendly against Sampdoria, the £35million signing impressed throughout the whole match in sweltering Macedonia.

"I think last season there was a movement away from how the team played under Louis van Gaal's side and I think it will become more of a Mourinho side".

"I think Manchester United will win the Premier League because Mourinho has never failed in a second season", Crespo said in a Q&A via the Mirror. "But you know in our good moment he was really good, especially in our period of dominance in the second half after the 2-0".

Finishing sixth in the league last season was tempered by their Europa League success, but United can ill-afford to slump so low once again, even if other competitions eventually take priority. Which is evidently why he feels the attacking trio of Martial, Rashford and Lukaku will be important players for Mourinho's team.

"He tried, and of course he missed his chance with an open goal but he scored his goal", he told reporters.

"He had a good fight against two good central defender and I am happy with this period and how he fits into - I am never exhausted to repeat - an wonderful group".

Phil Jones and Eric Bailly come back into contention for the Old Trafford clash as their suspension only covers European matches, swelling the Red Devils' defensive options.

"He's not ready to play tomorrow so it's not urgent, not desperate to have it done or not done".

The settled nature and impressive depth of the squad will also prove crucial to United's chances both domestically and overseas but their surge back to the top of the table could well be disrupted by City, whose manager Pep Guardiola certainly has a point to prove after last season's showing.

"We used the pre-season to work since day one, to work and to try to improve things that we already do".
