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

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

"Manchester City have the best team on paper", ex-England midfielder Owen Hargreaves told the Premier League official website.

"There is Mourinho himself".

City also have John Stones and Eliaquim Mangala on their books, giving them four of the most expensive defenders ever, but with total spending in the league having exceeded £900 million, Guardiola is unrepentant.

Chelsea faces Burnley on Saturday and then on August 20 the squad squares off against Tottenham Hotspur, which finished second a year ago and is +900 to win the EPL this season.

"West Ham can win at Manchester United, but I'd be happy if they came home with a point".

Despite a rocky start, Mourinho has put in the foundations.

United triumphed 2-0 over Ajax in the Europa League final to claim the trophy for the first time and secure a return to the Champions League. But Mourinho knows United demands more sought after silverware.

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is still in the market for another player, and has "twenty five percent" of his transfer business left to complete.

The football isn't as dreary as it was under David Moyes, and certainly not as boring as it was when Louis van Gaal was in charge.

City has spent about 200 million pounds ($260 million) this offseason, mostly on full backs Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, to follow on from about 170 million ($207 million) last summer. And he has already matched that amount this summer. Of course, Ibrahimovic has been replaced as the main striker at Old Trafford by Romelu Lukaku but when like on Tuesday night when the Belgian striker is not firing in front of goal who is there on the bench as an alternative centre forward? Midfielder Davy Propper is the big name among them, whilst former Valencia man Matthew Ryan is a highly rated goalkeeper. His presence will allow Pogba license to get further up the field, joining the attacks without worrying about protecting the defense.

But after a close-season in which both managers have invested heavily in new players, United are now Mourinho's team and City have been created by Guardiola.

"United will appreciate the return to the Premier League after facing an outstanding Real Madrid side in the European Super Cup earlier in the week", Owen wrote on Betvictor.com. He was also on target during the club's preseason tour of the United States. With a good VAR system it would be 1-1 and extra-time. But Mourinho will know that the results were unimportant; creating the spirit within his team, building a mentality, and emulating what he has been doing for so many years was the goal.

Chelsea winger Willian says "it would be a pleasure" if he were to have the opportunity to work with Jose Mourinho again.
