Mourinho To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Man Utd XI vs West Ham

While some fear the spending is unsustainable and will put clubs' long-term stability at risk, the 25th year of the English Premier League era should deliver a title race more fiercely contested than ever.

He achieved the feat at Porto, Chelsea twice, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, with the only exceptions to the rule being his first two management roles, at Benfica and Uniao de Leiria, where he lasted less than a season in both cases.

But Mourinho, speaking ahead of the clash with West Ham United, made it clear that Lindelof would be an importantly versatile asset at Old Trafford this season.

However, the club did win the Europa League and the League Cup, giving the manager a platform of success on which to build.

However, Mourinho added that one key factor to their title charge at Old Trafford will sharing the scoring load amongst numerous players, as was the case at his previous clubs, and hopes the onus will not be left exclusively on the shoulders of new striker Rolmelu Lukaku.

Newcastle will feature in the Premier League this season after winning automatic promotion from the Championship at the end of the 2016-17 campaign. "I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match we play".

"There's no relation between clubs, countries, seasons and periods".

First, in 2004/05 he became manager and promptly won the Premier League at his first time of trying.

Attack: Jesse Lingard played in the unfamiliar left wing-back role against Madrid but was hooked at half-time so I think we'll see him make way with Marcus Rashford coming in to the attack. It's not just for his qualities but my relation with him and the way I know him'.

"When this season I got the call that Matic wants to play for me, wants to play for Manchester United and he can make it happen, I thought he's the flawless player for me".

United snatched the Everton striker Lukaku from under the noses of Premier League rivals Chelsea in one of the summer's biggest football stories and Crespo believes that the signing of the big Belgian will give United the edge they need to claim the title.

Matic adds aggression and discipline to United's midfield and he will fit right into Mourinho's preferred three-man midfield and should be a regular figure in the starting XI alongside Ander Herrera and Pogba.

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season.

Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws - the highest in the league.

"I think every one of us is equipped to win the title". The top seven, we are all in Europe.

"This time, we are all in the same basket. They can still be like new players for us later in the season, so we are fine".
