Manchester United are now genuine title contenders, insists Joe Mourinho

Mourinho has won the domestic league title at the end of his second year in each of his five major management jobs.

Chelsea were sensationally upstaged by Arsenal in last season's FA Cup final and lost to them again in the Community Shield, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger retains little margin for error.

"I think Manchester United will win the Premier League because Mourinho has never failed in the second season", Crespo said in a Q&A via the Daily Mirror. While an outright "we will win the league" statement has been avoided, it's clear the players and manager are on the same page of at least attempting to challenge.

"He's [Lukaku] had a good pre-season".

"My initial analysis coming from January and progressively through the other months I was thinking about four players but I am not a hard person to work with - in spite of it looking different sometimes".

"Yeah, I think they have improved", former West Ham midfielder Carrick told United Review.

The Brazilian worldwide will hope to play a major part under Conte this season, as the side goes on to defend their domestic honour besides making a mark in the Champions League.

The best managers in the world are in the Premier League now. "When you come out on top it is an unbelievable feeling to know you are the best team in the country, and you have gone through all sorts of things along the way to win that." said the former Tottenham man.

"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". I know all of that and I understand your question.

Enough guessing games, let's just get to the Man United Starting XI prediction for the season opener vs West Ham.

Last season, Lukaku played 37 games for Everton, scoring 25 goals and six assists.

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season.

"I think everybody is in Europe".

"There will be some tough days, particularly away from home, but we must go into the season with confidence and no fear".

The veteran striker would be unlikely to even feature until the new year due to the severity of the injury sustained last season playing for United, but it is his presence that Mourinho wants at Old Trafford.

"This time we are all in the same basket and it will be the same for everybody". It is going to be the same for everybody.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola set the tone with a series of early deals that took his spending in this window to an eye-watering £218 million.

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