The Red Devils booked their place in Europe's elite club competition despite finishing sixth in the Premier League table in Jose Mourinho's first season in charge at the club. You have players who were pumped up in the gym and players who were born strong.

"He still needs to adapt to the intensity of the game but overall in the first half he had some very interesting moments and I believe, after what we saw today, he will become stronger and stronger".

Arsenal went 1-0 behind when Victor Moses scored shortly after the re-start but equalised just after Pedro Rodriguez had been sent off for raking his studs across Mohamed Elneny's calf.

"We can't stop with a win in the Community Shield".

Wenger says that he is not happy with clubs qualifying in this way, telling the London Evening Standard, "I was always against it". So three pre-season games in total, a great start but that was followed by two losses. We're starting at home again, but we've started poorly the last few seasons and we desperately need to get off to a winning start.

Coach Conte worked with Morata at Juventus so knows exactly what he is getting and will feel very confident that he can replace Costa and along with Batshuayi he will have enough fire power to help him try and regain the title this season. "33 is too high", the Frenchman said.
