Jose Mourinho: I won't moan if Man United don't sign another player

Romelu Lukaku might have joined Chelsea but ended up at Manchester United for £75 million ($99.18 million), a move that pushed Jose Mourinho's alternative targets Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata towards Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.

Michael Carrick believes "things are on the up" at Manchester United ahead of the club's opening game of the season against West Ham.

It is too early to say who has got the best of the most frenetic transfer market, but few of the buys come with the proven record that Zlatan Ibrahimoivic brought to United last summer.

"There are not many, there are just a couple".

"But I was not thinking of him because I never go to players who I think are the impossible mission. Maybe I made a mistake", said Wenger, who will be without want-away Chile star Alexis Sanchez against Leicester due to injury. "I am on fire".

The City line-up for their 1-0 win was all-British but the eleven who will take the field on Saturday will be drawn from around the world - with even more worldwide talent having been recruited during the close-season. It speaks to Mourinho's strength: clearly identifying his team's weaknesses, and working ruthlessly (and expensively) to correct them. They'll need to rest him for the lesser games with the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United also make their return to the Premier League, replacing their bitter, local rivals, Sunderland.

"Twenty-five per cent means one of four". Matic normally plays to a certain level (holds his hand up), sometimes a little above that and sometimes a little below.

Key players: Anthony Knockaert was named Championship Player of the Season past year. Will Harry Kane play every week?

"I like to think I understand the offside rule well enough".

As the new Premier League season approaches, we take a look at the teams that arrived from championship this year.

'Man City, fantastic manager, great spending, already very good players, are equipped.

With the rest of his players showing the strain in some lacklustre preseason outings - Conte admits that Matic's experience will be missed amid the pressure of defending the title.

AC Milan and LA Galaxy are among the clubs reportedly interested in signing the veteran, but Mourinho is keen to add the striker to his forward options when he is fit again, although there is no rush to confirm a deal. The medical department is better, the logistics, how we organise training routines, the analysis department.

"It's not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him". They also have a solid defence led by German Christopher Schindler, who played in every game last season and completed almost 300 clearances and close to a 100 interceptions.
