Premier League previews: Pressure on Man Utd to deliver

Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho gives his instructions during the UEFA Super Cup football match against Real Madrid Mourinho: Man Utd having conversations over Ibrahimovic return
Pammachio Corsino | 13 Agosto, 2017, 04:36

I had midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals from set-pieces.

"The Premier League is what you all know", Mourinho said on Friday. If you are a Manchester United player you've got to have personality, you've got to have that aura about you.

United suffered with a lengthy injury list throughout last season but Mourinho was pleased to announce that his squad is in excellent shape heading in to the new campaign.

"I opened the door for him at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go", he said.

Alongside assistant coaches Rui Faria and Ricardo Formosinho, the United manager wore an Adidas tracksuit and appeared relaxed ahead of the return of the Premier League.

The Brazil global thrived under the United boss and was named Chelsea's Player of the Year during Mourinho's final season at Stamford Bridge. "I'm not going to change the way I want to play".

Crystal Palace were crowned the punter's champions thanks to late season victories over Arsenal and at Liverpool.

"It's not because I have always done it (won the title in my second season at other clubs) that I am going to do it (with United)". Normally the second season should be better than the first because you know the club, you know the players. "And I think we're going to reach that level as a football team in the next couple of years".


Poots shared his predictions with InvestmentEurope, International Investment's sister title, noting that the usual suspects top the markets for the 2017/18 Barclays Premier League with Manchester City favourite in the betting world at US$2.90, followed by Chelsea (US$4.70), Manchester United (US$4.90).

"In this moment, I agree with these people who think this".

Mourinho's side begin their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday having enjoyed a strong pre-season, winning six out of seven friendlies before losing to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday.

Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy have all been recruited to provide much-needed quality in the full-back areas, Ederson will do battle with Claudio Bravo for the number one jersey and Bernardo Silva joins a long list of creative midfielders at the club.

Manchester United have spent the biggest transfer fee this summer so far after signing Romelu Lukaku in a £75m deal from Everton following Victor Lindelof's arrival from Benfica.

"I'm here to score goals and be the focal point of the team", Lukaku said.

"They could have scored more goals than they did, we could have scored more goals than we did..."
