After Busy Preseason, Jose Mourinho Seems to Finally Know His Best Team

Manchester City favourites to win Premier League this season

Manchester City favourites to win Premier League this season

The Old Trafford giants are now generally priced up at the 7-2 mark by United Kingdom bookmakers, along with defending champions Chelsea.

Romelu Lukaku will be tasked with spearheading United's attack following his £75m move from Everton and Mourinho believes it is imperative that other players chip in with goals.

Jose Mourinho has told his players they must all take responsibility for solving Manchester United's goalscoring problem, while adding that a Premier League title was a more realistic target this season.

Mata was one of United's top performers last season, scoring 10 goals and providing six assists in 42 league and cup outings.

Their star signing is French striker Alexandre Lacazette, who cost the Gunners a club record $76.46 million.

Friday night football was introduced last season with the experience beginning with Manchester United's home win against Southampton on 19 August. It could be the returning striker who leads the way to the Premier League or Champions League in the second half of this season.

Olympic champions US lead the way in women's 4x100m relay heats
Provided his Jamaican team-mates escape a mistake in this morning's heats, Bolt will line up for one final swansong at 9.50pm. It was the first time Bolt had been beaten at a major championships since the 4x100m relay at the 2007 worlds in Osaka.

The team struggles to adjust, flames out of the Champions League early and struggles to finish in the top four after a shaky start. While youngster Marcus Rashford is set to see plenty of minutes once again - as he continues to develop into a fearsome striker at an exciting rate.

Injuries. Mourinho is not a big fan of rotation when it comes to the spine of his team, and it's not a coincidence that Paul Pogba picked up an injury after playing every meaningful minute of football for the first several months of last season. But Mourinho knows United demands more sought after silverware.

Brighton & Hove Albion even did it three times, first signing Australian keeper Mathew Ryan, then Dutch midfielder Davy Propper and finally Colombian Jose Izquierdo from Club Brugge. Mourinho will have to learn to trust the fringe members of his squad if United are going to still be in contention at the business end of the season. I expect him to play with Chelsea, it is not the right moment to lose a player. Defenders Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and winger Ashley Young are out with long-term injuries. A short-term deal for Ibrahimovic in January, regardless of wages and any bonuses is a no risk situation for the club and could well prove to be the most important deal they could do this season.

Star man: Alexis Sanchez - The Chile global makes Arsenal tick and, if he can maintain his focus with the uncertainty surrounding his contract situation hanging over his head, he will again be key as the Gunners bid to reclaim their position in the top four. Additionally, the guaranteed goals of the 36-year-old will be vital if a goal shy United team are to challenge for the big two trophies, the Premier League and Champions League.

"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".
