Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United's transfer activity is sufficient

12 August 2017

Here he picks his Premier League teams to beat, bolter to watch out for and the clubs set for relegation.

The 28-year-old midfielder joined United from last season's champions in a deal believed to be worth £40m.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had an answer, pointing to Chelsea sending numerous players out on loan, but Conte insisted: "I'm not looking for sympathy of any coaches for this situation".

The Algeria global has stated his wish to leave the 2015/16 Premier League champions but Wenger insists Arsenal were never looking to land his signature.

Sean Dyches's men, lead by Tom Heaton who was just brilliant between the sticks, were especially successful at their Turf Moor where they've won 33 out of 40 points previous year so it's obvious that their away record is simply poor - seven points in 19 games so reigning champions should pick up three points at the beginning of the campaign.

Crespo tips Man United to win Premier League
The danger for Chelsea is that the harmonious atmosphere re-established by Conte after Mourinho's bitter departure is eroded. Bournemouth and Southampton will face off in the Premier League again this season having drawn in their last encounter.

"It's hard to explain, but when you play with Mourinho, you feel like the best striker in the world".

Attack: Jesse Lingard played in the unfamiliar left wing-back role against Madrid but was hooked at half-time so I think we'll see him make way with Marcus Rashford coming in to the attack.

Chelsea will begin their title defence without Eden Hazard and new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko, who are both injured.

The lack of goals contributed to 10 league draws at Old Trafford that cost the club any chance of challenging Chelsea for the title. Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League past year.

Comparisons have been drawn to Thierry Henry, but even Arsenal's prolific striker took time to adjust to English physicality, failing to score in his first eight games after his arrival from Juventus.

Philippe Coutinho: Liverpool say Brazilian is 'definitively' not for sale
On Friday morning Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group issued a statement saying they would not consider any offers for Coutinho . So everything is in a good way - but of course now we have to deliver, and we know that, so we are ready for it.

"That group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City", he said. I want two or three teams going for it. Of all the signings United have made, Matic is the best one.

"My journey in the last few years has been incredible", Sane told Omnisport. This year is his year.

It was the inevitable reaction to feeble title challenges that saw Guardiola's City finish 15 points behind the victorious Chelsea side in third place and Mourinho's United drift over the line nine points further adrift. It would have been hard no matter what for Chelsea this year.

"You look at Manchester City and it's a lot of change there - change for the better I'm sure, but will it all come together this year?"

And I think Liverpool will be the ones for top-four too, I don't think Coutinho talk will impact on them and I like the work they settled last season. You are not only improving United in defensive midfield, you are making Pogba better, [Ander] Herrera better.
