Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title Premier League betting preview: Man City the title favourite
Pammachio Corsino | 13 Agosto, 2017, 20:53

A superb through ball from Marcus Rashford gave Romelu Lukaku his first Premier League goal for Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United kick off their campaign at home against West Ham United while Newcastle United host Tottenham Hotspur on the first Sunday of the new Premier League season.

West Ham have made some smart additions this summer, but United seem primed to return to the role of title contenders.

This was part of the remit - scoring goasls against stubborn teams who park the bus when they rock up to Old Trafford, with the draw at home to the Hammers previous year a case in point. Inter's refusal to listen to offers below their £48m valuation of their player has prevented any deal from being struck, with Gareth Bale not interested in a move to Old Trafford despite the club's long-standing interest in the Real Madrid star.

Manchester United, after some good signings, are considered to be one of the favourites for the title. They spent more time in sixth than any other position, and finished there.

United will be without Luke Shaw as they defender continues to recover from a foot injury while Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo are also long-term absentees.


And then there is Paul Pogba.

Mkhitaryan was hauled off following a dire display against Manchester City in September and it took months to regain Mourinho's trust. Though Victor Lindelof might have to start on the bench, with Eric Bailly and Phil Jones available again after being suspended for Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup game.

"For us it's just another game, a game we look forward to - these are the kind of games players want to play", Fonte concluded.

West Ham won just one of their opening seven games last season - a run that led to plenty of debate about whether he was still the right man for the job. Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez are expected to make their league debuts for the visitors.

Some believe that Hernandez can fire West Ham up the table this season, starting with a goal against his former club today - but pundit Mark Lawrenson doesn't believe that will happen.

They haven't had many success in the pre-season as they lost to Werder Bremen and Manchester City, drew against Altona and Sturm Graz, while managed to beat only Fulham.
