Man United's Mourinho: Prem title more realistic than last season

Man United's Mourinho: Prem title more realistic than last season”

Arsene Wenger brokered a fragile truce with Arsenal's dissenting fans by winning the FA Cup last season, but the Gunners boss has no margin for error after going 13 years without Premier League glory.

"So between the players we lost and the players we got, I think we are in a similar situation".

"It would be better to lose two or three but win three or four more and then have six or eight more points and then a different position in the table".

"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals".

Manchester City have jetted off to Brighton ahead of their Premier League opener against the newly-promoted side.

"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble". Manchester United, Southampton, Cheltenham Town (Carabao Cup) and Newcastle United will see the first team travelling from one end of the country to the other as they play football away from home, but the side has a couple of weeks reprieve as we do have an worldwide break as well as our first Home game against Huddersfield Town, but we're on the road again as we travel to the Midlands for a League clash against West Brom. "But it's not a party for us and we need to win".

Liverpool finished in fourth place last season and manager Jurgen Klopp has brought in Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, Domimic Solanke and Scottish defender Andy Robertson to improve his squad.

City is much more equipped to launch a sustained title challenge, with Guardiola close to having his ideal squad.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic is set to make his league debut for United following his move from Chelsea after impressing against Madrid in midweek and the Serbian should start alongside Ander Herrera in the middle of the park. It's been far too long since we said farewell to football and I've been resigned to watching highlights of old West Ham United matches on YouTube.

Last season, Mourinho eventually had to prioritise the Europa League over the Premier League in a bid to secure Champions League football.

This season, however, each of the Premier League's top seven will play in Europe, which Mourinho believes is a leveller.

"It's a wonderful game for the club and supporters, as a first game in the Premier League, but we have to make sure it's a good day for the team as well", said Hughton. I think it will be a draw. Last season two were not.

Still, the n o r t h London club has kept its key talent - notably H a r r y K a n e a n d D e l e A l l i who scored 47 league goals between them last season.

"This time, we are all in the same basket".

'But they are for wonderful players, so good luck to them if they can do that. "There is no advantage for anyone".
