Man United's Mourinho: Prem title more realistic than last season

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday.

Mourinho went for a three at the back formation against Real Madrid in the Super Cup on Tuesday night but I think he might revert to a 4-2-3-1 this weekend.

Chelsea have the overall game for this league, they won it at a canter last season. Again they are starting to play that brand of football that we know Jose Mourinho does and in Jose's second season now, I think they will finish in top-four - they will do well.

Romelu Lukaku is a very good signing and Nemanja Matic is a brilliant pick-up from Chelsea.

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

Trump taunts North Korea as China urges calm
The world knows that appeasement of aggressors simply does not work and never will - just ask Neville Chamberlain. It's unlikely as North Korea has made it clear that it will never negotiate away its nuclear weapons.

Stopping short of a guarantee, Mourinho believes an encouraging pre-season and success in the Europa League last season can propel his side to further success. "They need to get in another two or three players, I think, to have a chance of retaining that title".

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez returns to the Premier League after spells in Spain and Germany.

"So whatever happens at the start of the season - and of course I hope we get off to a flier - we must stay calm and remember that it's where we are in the table after 38 games that matters, not the first few. If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know".

"But I wish him all the best for the rest of the season".

However, Mourinho has lost a number of key players to long-term injury, including defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, and wing-back Ashley Young.

There could be a female manager in EPL soon, feels Arsene Wenger
Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare couldn't have imagined Wenger would have the Gunners completely abandon center backs. Arsenal were triumphant in a Premier League classic with Leicester unlucky to be on the losing side.

"We have had a better pre-season than a year ago and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

Having not finished below third in the Premier League during the Scot's reign, remarkably they have not finished higher than fourth since his retirement. The top seven, we are all in Europe.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is probably favourite to start ahead of Juan Mata and Anthony Martial so he should support Romelu Lukaku with the Belgian worldwide set to make his league debut following his big-money move from Everton this summer.

"It's not urgent, not desperate to have it done or not done", said Mourinho.

It represents a significant change for West Ham, who have looked overseas for many of their signings in recent years, with successes like Dimitri Payet offset by a number of failures in the window.

'Never sell him' - Arsenal fans react to display of substitute against Leicester
I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight. Substitutes: Olivier Giroud (for Holding, 67) 7, Aaron Ramsey (for Elneny, 67) 7, Theo Walcott (for Welbeck, 75) 6.
