Jose Mourinho and his men will open Premier League title quest this Sunday afternoon with the clash against West Ham.

Head to head:The Red Devils did not have any troubles with West Ham United a year ago as they have won both meetings with the Hammers by at least two goals difference.

The new season is upon Manchester United and Jose Mourinho is about to start his second campaign as the club's manager.

United finished 6th last season, in what was a hard first league season for Mourinho, but the fact that he always wins the league in his second season is a pointer to the fact that a first Premier League title in five years could make its way to Old Trafford next May. Because his agent told me "you can have him, you just have to pay". But they need to convert those draws into wins.

Penalties had to decide the victor of the contest and Moses's teammates Courtois and Alvaro Morata failed to convert their spot-kicks.

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

But on a positive note, United clinched the EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League last season, the latter of which ensured their entry to the UEFA Champions League, courtesy a 2-0 win over Ajax of Netherlands.

It didn't look like the players believed they could get a result, and that is a damning observation for any side. We wanted to create situations that were two against one in our favour, but we didn't have that a lot today.

"There is no excuse for Man Utd not to challenge for the league". However, the Red Devils will have to move forward and will have to depend on the likes of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Mkhitaryan and others to fetch them points.

The Red Devils will be hoping to enjoy an improvement in form in the Premier League this season after they slumped to a disappointing sixth-placed finish under Mourinho last term. If they can get the three attacking players in and around Lindelof it will be interesting.

Also, they lured fullback Pablo Zabaleta to the London Stadium on a Bosman transfer while signing Manchester City's Joe Hart on a season-long loan. "We can not lose confidence", he said.

"I think Real Madrid was too early for him", he said.

"I think Victor needs a little bit of time". He will at least want to see his new players gel and put in a good performance.
