Crespo is also backing Wayne Rooney to be player of the season, thanks to the "romantic story" of the return to his boyhood club Everton.

"When this season I got the call that Matic wants to play for me, wants to play for Manchester United and he can make it happen, I thought he's the ideal player for me".

The Red Devils boss has enjoyed success nearly without interruption across a 17-year managerial career, winning eight domestic titles, two Champions Leagues and two Europa Leagues.

"Jose is one of the best in the world".

"We have the confidence levels of a team who won a European competition".

Conte faces new challenges this season.

- record number of Premier League winner's medals won by Ryan Giggs during his career with Manchester United.

On the prospect of re-signing Ibrahimovic once the 35-year-old striker has recovered, Mourinho said: "We are having conversations and discussing the possibility of him staying for the second part of the season". We're going to try to win the title. Coupled with a manager with a proven track record in Barcelona, Bayern Munich and in the UEFA Champions League, bookmakers, the media and even the fans have tipped Manchester City as favourites to lift the Premier League trophy this season.

Rio Ferdinand believes that Manchester United are set to win the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho this season.


"It doesn't matter, the club will always be a giant".

"In the last two or three seasons they've been defensively okay but not scoring enough goals has hurt United and I think there are goals in the side now. We are going to do that, step by step".

"I think Manchester United will win the Premier League because Mourinho has never failed in a second season".

The United manager had outlined four positions he wanted to strengthen in to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the start of the transfer window, but only Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have arrived at Old Trafford. He is still on the look-out for one more attacking player, although any hopes of recruiting either Gareth Bale or Ivan Perisic are fading.

West Ham have also been active in the transfer market after flirting with the relegation zone last season and could feature Mexico worldwide and ex-United striker Javier Hernandez in attack on Sunday.

He said: "I feel the way people analyse [Pogba] is really unfair".

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.

Toure said: "Yes because the mentality of the manager is playing good and winning - not just winning".
