Romelu Lukaku and Manchester United up and running in some style

Six of manager Jose Mourinho's seven signings as United boss have been over 6ft 1in, including towering forward Romelu Lukaku who arrived at Old Trafford for a fee of £75million. He has also stated that he will discuss his future with Spurs if another club makes a concrete offer for him.

One reason as to why the Premier League is so watchable and so popular is that there is so much competition, especially at the top of the table.

This summer has already seen a little under £900 million spent by the Premier League's clubs in the transfer window, already not far off reaching the level of two years ago (which just saw just over £1 billion) and last summer (when we saw £1.1 billion).

"The only thing I have to do is work every day like I always do, the only demand on me is the one I put on myself", Mourinho said.

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.

United were reliant on Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 17 league goals - and 28 all told - before a cruciate knee ligament cut short his season in April. "Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces".

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Jose Mourinho confirmed that he will have to do without the likes of Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young due to injuries.

"I'm happy to start Sunday - we are ready".

"I did take Watford out of my picks because I think Andre Gray is a good signing for them and could make the difference". But, there is a serious need for them to get off to a solid start, pick up three points and mount their title challenge in the right manner.

"I also understand that my club by doing 75% of what I initially asked, I think the club did very well so I don't think I am in a position of crying, moaning, and protesting". We are going to try to win the title'.

"That's what I love most about this squad: the players always give everything", he wrote.

"The other 25 percent (of the transfer targets) will be another player playing from the sides".

"But we have players and if we cannot strengthen the team in these areas we have people we can trust and go for it".
