The Special One feels the Red Devils are ready to challenge for the title, having been also-rans under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.

This year, they will have to ensure that they bring back an aura of invincibility to Old Trafford and do not drop points, especially at home.

New signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic will be crucial to Manchester United's title aspirations in the upcoming Premier League season. In terms of the squad, this is my second transfer window.

"I am happy with the effort the club did", the 54-year-old Portuguese said.

"I just think naturally that a manger in the second season knows the players better, knows the club better".

'We are much better organised at every level.

"So we will go for it this season". Step by step, we're going to fight. He's not a young guy who comes from another country. I want the Champions League to start. The Gunners are looking to return to the top four after missing out past year for the first time in over two decades under Arsene Wenger. Jose Mourinho's side play West Ham at Old Trafford, while Spurs travel to play Newcastle in what is perhaps the most interesting game of the weekend.

"I don't say I know the league better because I have been in this league for a long time". I want, I want! "I am on fire".

Manchester City and Liverpool also play Saturday, against Watford and newly-promoted Brighton, respectively, while Manchester United and Tottenham both start on Sunday.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic is set to make his league debut for United following his move from Chelsea after impressing against Madrid in midweek and the Serbian should start alongside Ander Herrera in the middle of the park.

"When this season I got a call that Matic wants to play for me, he wants to come to Manchester United and he can make it happen, I thought he was the flawless player for me".

"Not just for his qualities but also for my relationship with him".

Mourinho says the Serb's consistency is what makes him a victor, explaining: "He is one of those players where there are no question marks with him".

Fuelled by a historically lavish spending spree, the Premier League returns yesterday when Arsenal host Leicester in the opening game of the hotly-anticipated new season.

He's one of those players who gives me consistency which is what I like.

"He thinks he can do more at football's highest level so we are having conversations and discussing the possibility of him staying for the second part of the season". That is normal but not enough, ' he stresses. My dedication to my job is always at the maximum, even more now than when I started, and I believe at the end of the season we will see the results.

The first week of the season is always one of the hardest to predict, but our writers have a lot of confidence in the top six. Man City - fantastic boss, great spending, already very good players, they are equipped. They didn't sell, like some were expecting, the top players - Ozil, Alexis.

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting".
