Star man: Young, handsome, athletic, zanily coiffed, beloved of sponsors and insanely skilful, all Paul Pogba needs to become the flawless Manchester United midfielder is to actually become a bit more influential in their matches. He was a stylish player for Tottenham.

Hernan Crespo, a former Argentina global, knows what it takes to win the title as he won it with the Portuguese tactician in the 2005/06 campaign.

Mourinho added: "In many things, it is".

With all due respect to Petr Cech, Schmeichel is the greatest goalkeeper of the Premier League era, a man nearly as important as Eric Cantona.

FIRST FRIDAY STARTThe Premier League's opening fixture will be played on a Friday for the first time when Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium.

New Betfair and Paddy Power customers can get 18/1 enhanced odds on Manchester United to beat West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola takes his side to the South coast for a 5.30pm kick off and will be hoping to get off to a good start against one of the league's new sides.

"At home, we lost only one match, to Manchester City".


"We are Manchester United and we want to get back to being the big Manchester United".

Number three on the list of all-time top Premier League goalscorers with 187, Cole was a star of Kevin Keegan's first great Newcastle United team. After making his name in the Championship, Murray will hope to make his mark with the Seagulls in the Premier League with a goal against City. City would never have won their two Premier League titles without Silva. Is he be the new Thierry Henry? An opening goal for them would be incredible, but City should handle them quite easily.

The Portuguese, in his first season at Old Trafford, only managed sixth spot - 24 points behind champions Chelsea - after failing to take care of lesser sides at home and prioritising winning the Europa League by April. United will cough up £18m this year for the pleasure of being owned by them.

Ibrahimovic has continued his rehabilitation at United's training ground and has even stuck around to help out some of the younger Red Devils players during preseason, according to midfielder Paul Pogba.

The club also went on to sign PSV's Dutch midfielder Davy Propper to boost their quality, and considering Propper's performances and potential, City could face a tough task in the midfield area on Saturday.

All three have the pace to change defence into attack quickly, something City lacked in the full-back positions last season.

Can Chelsea FC do the double this season, will it be a fairytale season?

"I would say there are seven teams to fight for the title and 20 teams to fight every week for every match". If he starts against Brighton as expected, he'll be looking to prove the doubters wrong.
