Mourinho: Man United will compete with Europe's best in two years

Manchester City's unfamiliarity with Brighton and Hove Albion can help Chris Hughton's promoted side start their Premier League campaign with an upset win on Saturday, midfielder Solly March has said.

According to a report from The Independent, Manchester United have renewed their interest in Tottenham Hotspur star Danny Rose as they have grown frustrated in their pursuit of both Gareth Bale and Ivan Perisic. But there were too many draws. "But the top seven, we are going to be in the four competitions and so there is no advantage for any one of us". "Can we win it?"

"We had lots of dominance at home, we had lots of chances, we had lots of matches where the result could or should be 2-0 or 3-0 and in the end was 1-1".

Manchester United showed glimpses of what they could do against an nearly full strength Real Madrid in the second half in Skopje - and they looked as cohesive and risky on the break as they have been in the last few years.

But what of his remarkable second-season record and what it might mean for the looming campaign?

"Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva pick themselves and I think the pace of Leroy Sane will be key to opening up a what will surely be a stubborn and well-organised defence".

Manchester United coach, José Mourinho has confirmed the English club is in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over a new deal.

Nadal upset by Shapovalov
Shapovalov put Mannarino in trouble with a big serve at 30-30, but he rushed an overhead to give the Frenchman the break point. Haase said it was hard for both players after playing tough three-set matches against seeded players earlier in the week.

"I don't think we're going to see that replicated (in England)", said Premier League chairman Richard Scudamore.

Dear, who famously scored five times in nineteen minutes for West Ham during a 6-1 thrashing of West Bromwich Albion in Apri 1965, was quick to point out that his old side had fared well in the transfer market themselves this season: "Joe Hart and Zabaleta are great signings which will bolster the team defensively".

Paper Round's view: Two years Mourinho might just about get away with, but even he can't really believe the club's fans would give him a 10-year grace period?

"Overall, expect teams to drop very deep against Manchester United, as they will fear the pace of Lukaku".

He admits it will be a unusual experience to line up at his old stomping ground in the colours of a different team, but says he will not allow sentiment to cloud his focus. Matic, who won the league with Mourinho at Chelsea in 2015, is expected to slot into midfield alongside Pogba and Ander Herrera, with former Benfica man Lindelof due to partner Eric Bailly at centre-back. We always had that.

A natural goalscorer is exactly what the Hammers were crying for in the transfer window, and with Hernandez and his ability to be at the right place at the right time, West Ham could look to build around a forward with Premier League experience and goal-scoring acumen.
