Mourinho On Man United's EPL Title Chances, New Signings, Zlatan Comeback


A fee of 40 million pounds proved too substantial for Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to turn down, even if manager Antonio Conte wanted to retain the midfielder he still called "very important for our team" on Wednesday.

Brighton secured a return to the top flight of English football last season after 25 years of absence, and they're starting it with one of the most hard fixtures of the season.

Jose Mourinho's side will take on West Ham at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Burnley midfielder Aiden O'Neill (18 years, one month) became our second youngest Premier League debutant, after Harry Kewell, and 49th Australian to play in the league. But we have players and if we can not strengthen then we have people we trust'.

The Premier League legend said on BBC Sport: "Chelsea I do sense, there is something brewing there, which isn't nice".

"There's no relation between clubs and countries and seasons and periods, so obviously there is no guarantee".

Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal from Lyon this summer, and will hope to propel the club back to the Champions League next season.

"We're used to just watching the game and going away quietly, but this time around we could not leave quietly".

City manager Pep Guardiola's decision to spend more than £200 million on five players may be the most astonishing piece of business, but money has been lavished everywhere: Everton and promoted Huddersfield Town both brought in nine new players and most clubs either broke their own transfer records or spent much of the summer trying to do so.

"But the top seven, we're going to be in the four competitions, so there's no advantage for any one of us".

According to, the agent of Perisic has visited Manchester United to give them the latest on the Croatian worldwide.

"You know he's injured, he needs time to recover, he's not ready to play tomorrow", Mourinho said.

"We have had a better pre-season than past year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

The big money arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic certainly represent the necessary statement of intent, though United have tried and failed, often at great expense, to find a winning formula since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
